Hi all,
I am just starting to run some test G Code on my new plasma machine. Mach3, gecko540 drive, Gantry type.
I made the code below with a 0 radius tool just so I could draw lines with a pen to start. When I step through the lines, the corners of the objects are sharp just as they are drawn. When I run the code at full speed, the corners are radiused on the order of .2" or so.
From this I think it is perhaps some motor setup. X and Y both run at 100 ipm with a "5" acceleration. Z at the moment is 30 ipm with "5" acceleration.
Can I adjust something to get sharp clean corners?
Thanks,
Roger

I bumped acceleration up to "25" on the x and Y axes which squared the corners quite a bit. I'll have to test the limits.
Thanks.
