    Default Mastercam Engraving Problem

    When using axis substitution in X3 to engrave letters and the toolpath is posted the NC is inverted and the letters are machined inverted(using Mach3 for control), if I mirror the geo in X3 then the NC is proper when posted. If I leave the letters flat ie. turn off the axis sub the letters will be correct when posted and come off the machine correct. They are only inverted when using axis sub. Does anyone know what setting I am missing here, (I think it is in the post).

    I think there is the problem in the axis setting or control in inverted...
    So, first you have to set this and then try to engrave...
