  1. Where is the machining window preview?
  2. When I bring up a pattern with Z set to "0" it always helps to choose the correct cutter tool. The problem is as I set that tool to go deeper say .010 it shows the pattern almost gone, it seems to me that going deeper would just make a blob, not disappear! If I use Gravoply, set the depth of the spindle to just more than the total thickness of it, adjust the dial to cut at .010 it comes out fine. It seems backwards to me
  3. How do I get a laser pointer like this one for my machine?
  4. I hope that you don't mind if I jump in here and ask a question I got a IS400 gravograph recently and does anyone know if it is able to engrave/drag on glass? Is there a rotary attachment for it?
  5. What set up are you using? What is your method of engraving? I myself have not done metal yet so I would like some pointers if you don't mind
  6. Yes I am, I red somewhere that on bottom was for 3d. I did choose on bottom and could not duplicate that anomaly. Along with that it seems like there are odd things happening that I'm not used to after loading GS7 on windows 10, almost like it is missing a file or something, one example is I set my Z and hit go and it cut way deeper than zero. I set the tool to 0.000 depth so I'm not sure if I missed another setting. Is there a way to get better trained on GS7? Between trial and error along with Bob and Tom videos I can do most things but I would like to learn more Thanks for all your help
  7. Now an editing issue, at one size it removes a shape. size it bigger and it removes a different shape Any ideas?
  8. How does one expand his choice of Fonts?
  9. I'm in, not sure what button i did or didn't click Anyways YEA As always I appreciate all your help
  10. After installing a pci1pecp card and a Tripp lite USB serial adapter I get the test box when I try to send a file to the engraver Now what?
  11. Front or rear, all the same. it only likes the one that it was in when I loaded the driver that you linked me to
  12. When I get it plugged in will my pc recognize the engraver?
  13. Those are the cables that came with the machine 18 years ago New 9 pin cable or will build 6 support serial to USB? At this point windows 10
  14. Thanks guys This is what I have waiting to mate to a pc I'll look into them
