Re: No Z axis G-Code

bruce q
 

I will check again but I am sure I have that box checked and a valid value next to that check box.

The etch file works ok with Z axis movements as required, it is ONLY the mill layer that is not
getting the Z axis values.

I will find out what version pcb-gcode I am using, I think I updated that a while back but haven't updated
Eagle and not sure I want to since I am still using XP op system.

Bruce,


When you run the pcb-gcode-setup ulp, have you placed a
checkmark to
generate the milling file AND given it a proper depth to
mill it??

again, just pulling at straws.

For
some unknown reason to me
when ever I use PCB-gcode now to generate g-code for

engraving a pcb I get no Z axis entries on the milling
layer. It never
use to be this way.

This started happening a couple of months ago and at first
started by
dropping out

the first Z axis movement when I engrave an outline of the
pcb I am
working on

(usually just a square or rectangle).

Now there are X and Y g-code movements but no Z axis entries
at all. I
have looked

at pcb-gcode setup but haven't changed anything there
other than passes
and that

is back to single pass numbers that I have used in the past
with no
issues. Has anyone

else run into this and have you found a fix?


Thanks,

Bruce
