Your laser should of come with it's own software to run the machine, not Mach 3. Usually you'll need to import either a Bitmap, dxf or ai file, etc., rather than toolpaths created with the Vectric software. You might want to google the K40 Laser and watch some of the videos.

Thanks. Ya I found those too but they are for purchase. I don’t have aspire or illustrator. I’m just looking for a vcarve file to try it. I'm not sure about VCarve, but you will need to do some major node editing. I used Aspire. Once you get the vectors, you'll need to double them and delete the or...

I was then able to bring it into Aspire and trace the vectors. Adobe Illustrator is another good software for the tracin...
First thing that comes to mind is your mill slipped from the collet from either a wore out collet or it not fitting tight. and/or it had a bind somewhere and you lost some steps. I once used a 1/8" collet with a 3mm mill and had that problem.
