    Default Mastercam/Mach3

    Hello everyone.

    I'm having difficulty to properly convert my 3D drawing(a cylinder with a design on it -> I use C-axis) on mastercam 8 to NC-code. When I open the NC code in Mach3, it doesn't recognize negative values of the angles.(Instead it makes a full round before realizing that angle value is not valid.) How can I fix this? I'm not even sure if that happens due to mastercam or mach3. Any help is much appreciated.

    are you in absolute or incremental mode? I don't think you'd ever use a negative value in absolute mode.
