Thank you Tweakie, yes I think it was very good as a start.
And there are still many settings to try  Smiley

I've used all Arts cnc programs since the beginning, Master5, Mach3, Mach4.
I have now switched from a smooth stepper to Pokey57cn c to make it easier to switch between Mach4 and Auggie on my mill.
It's still a bit difficult to switch, but with a little patience it works ok.
Would be nice if it was possible to change the toolpath in angle as well, and maybe to make zero in the middle of the toolpath

But Auggie is a fantastic program, thank you Art. Smiley

Nice Work. First UV laser burn Ive seen, nice to know it works.

 Ill keep in mind your requests for different angles. I think they actually will
work but I only put out raster paths. I think I made it so any arbitrary path
will work so you could edit the Gcode to do that.. but Ill keep it in
mind for future work in there.

Thx

Thank you Art, the laser is actually a 5W, 445nm.  Smiley
Would also be very interesti ng with an opportuni ty to use a rotary axis, especiall y 3d logos on pens etc.

Hi Christer:

   The way Auggie works is it maps the photo to x,y space, and will only burn if the
motion is within the mapped space, and a g1 motion.
  This means if you drove the 4th axis with the X output, a photo should engrave fine
in 4th axis. With Auggie almost any type of engraving is possible this way. I will look
at some way to make this easier though.. Good job.

Thanks for info Art, i will do some tests later.  Smiley
I have built new router/mill and is still in the process of configuri ng and testing (Y1500mm, X1000mm, Z 200mm) and the rotary axis is on its way (have used a CNC converted Sherline before).
I suppose you have to calculate the X movement on rotary depending on the diameter of the object etc, and i guess it can get a bit difficult as the pens I do often have curves.
Is it possible to run tool paths from other cnc programs in Auggie?
Example: Vectric Aspire,etc.?

Christer :

 Yes, you can, provided they don't use Gcodes not implement ed. Ive only added basic hooks for many , though a user can make any they wish that aren't known. But basic G0,G1,G2/3/4 are all fine. Vectric files posted for mach3 should be fine, though you may have to remove some codes if they flag an unknown error, or add a script for that code.

 Thanks for posting your tests, this gives me a better idea what to expect from a 2.5w 445nm for similar results.
