The inner helix is because you requested a tool ramp angle of 30 degrees. We make that ramp a helix is the smoothest way to plunge into work. If you change the ramp angle to 90 the tool will go straight down. Be sure you have a center cutting tool if you do that. The ramp into the work starts at the clearance height specified for the job. It needs to be above the work, but to high and you do some air cutting before the tool gets to he surface.

Your example does point out a problem with the machine max settings-  I don't check the units so assume your max is set to the same units as your job. I should work on that.

I thought I had fixed the feed rate along the path, I will look at that.

thanks for the example,  it always helps to see an example of a reported problem.

OK, I found and fixed the Max Plunge value problem- I had code calling it Plung in a couple places and Plunge in others. Not the same!

That will be in the next release, after I track down a couple other problems.

I have had other mentions of the rogue toolpath in rectangles. can you show me a job file  that does it?

Ok, thanks.  I found the problem. A very strange one, an edit in the code that makes no sense at all, but it changed Arc Slot descriptions to Tool Change. All the rest of the data got imported Ok.

I have a couple other things to look at before I release an update, but hopefully not long.

Will you please post a job file here that shows the problem. They are simple text files so just copy one and attach it here.

Ok, thanks, I see the problem, The label was getting changed after the form was created by the choice of Metric or English units. I have fixed the code, it will be in the next version when I release it. So far that is the only change so its not enough to release.

I am now working on the spindle encoder for threading in Mach4. I am looking at options for the spindle encoder. Is it necessary to be a quadrature encoder, or can a simple pulse train. like from a gear tooth sensor reading a gear? How many pulses per rev  are needed for good threading? I will also have an index pulse of a single pulse per rev.

For 4) you are right that it is a version compatibility problem, and I am sorry that it will not be fixed. We made a few changes to the job file along the way and there are a couple places where this has happened, to many to be fixed.

I do not see the issue you refer to in 5) can you post a screen shot?

I have thought about that myself. I had a similar job with 8 arc slots. I may be able to work that in.

There was a bug in the way job files were stored. I fixed that in the latest version that is on the download site. Unfortunately the old versions were written in a way that I cannot recover them, so you will have to recreate a job wit this new version then it should be able to be used on both machines as you want to do. Both machines will have to run the new version.

Sorry for that screwup.

The problem is that +5 v is needed for a prox switch, it is a 3 wire device. It makes it hard to connect when there is no +5 in the IDC connector.
