It may not be connected but I had a problem using G41 with G91 and arcs were highly distorted.  Ger21 suggested to use Version 3.043, the development version and this fixed the problem.

Many thanks, 3.43 seems to do it.  I also tried 3.042.027 but that was bad.


Hi all, I joined back in Feb, and have just put in a request for help with my first post so I thought that I should introduce my self.

Apprenticeship with Royal Air Force servicing aircraft wireless and radar, back in the days of valves (vacuum tubes), did 13 years in RAF.
Then 8 years maintaing mainframe computers IBM clones.
2 short jobs about a year each which introduced me to micro-processors
20 years programming, Fortran and assembler, maintaining an on-line betting system, then the system was replaced by a new one so I was shunted to do other things so when a year later they offered my re-dundancy I accepted it with pleasure.
I have been in my current position, retirement, for nearly 9 years and am very happy in the role, the only problem is that the money is not good.

Having decided to move my drivers from the plastic case that they came in into a metal case so that they are screened I looked for details of the cutouts required for DB9 connectors.  I found that some G code was included for this job in the MACH3 release, in shapes.tap, BUT it is in Absolute mode and I wanted a positionless subroutine for multiple cutouts in s single program.  I did the conversion and the results were somewhat interesting :-

If the subroutine is run at the position where the toolpath has been regenerated it is almost correct, but the finish co-ordinates are slightly off, but when you move away from the regereration point and call it again you get some very interesting paths cut/dispalyed.

I am attaching a self extracting zip containing a readme file along with various implementations of the code and the xml file that I was using. MACH3 Versioin R3.042.020

I also ran it on my internet machine, demo license Version R2.63 with the default xml with very similar results
