I don't know Bobcam but does it generate g-code for Mach3 to drive the CNC controller?

If so, your problem could be that you don't have a valid Mach3 license which limits you to 500 hundred lines of g-code.

Hi, I agree; my Bob Cam is a way TOO expensive.

I think your problem with line 500 is you're running in demo mode. You have to buy V24 to run further. If you paid for their over priced software phone their toll free number for help.
