Creating a gm file for cutting

Postby chevybythesea » Thu Jul 21, 2016 1:26 am

So - I just upgraded my table to new electronics and software, thinking things would run better. Not quite true.

Table is a 10 year old TorchMate, was using version 2 of the driver software, and would design dxf's in SolidWorks. Would then use the TorchMate software to convert the file to a G-code file, and presto - ready to cut 99% of the time.

Now, I am using the newest VMD software, and have the TorchMate CAD/CAM software - and not able to figure out how to import my dxf's and cut the files. Any tutorials?

File, open, select dxf and click on the p2 color symbol in the bottom left, then select dxf and pick arrange/make path.
