Sorry for the monologue!

Unckecking the Ang Short Rot on G0, seemed to do the trick, it takes a little more time to get to the desired angle but I can Live with that.

Ok that fixed the feed rate but I found another problem which I manually fixed:

Here is a Gcode snip of the test file I am using

Mach 3 seems to skip lines 130, 180, and 230, which are G0 moves of A, The weird thing is that the A axis moves to the position called for in the following line for example when line 180 calls for A to move to 71.6312, it instead moves to the position called for in line 200 which is -288.3688, so that when it actually goes to that line it does the arc but not the A axis movement.

What I did was to add a G1 on lines 130, 180, 230, etc... and now the A axis moves to where it is supposed to move.

Any ideas on why G0 moves of A axis are being skipped?

WAIT!!!
Sorry Gerry, but that DID do it. didnt restart mach3, but now it works... Looks like Im buing a sheetcam license soon.
Thanks I love this place

Hey Gerry,
nope, that didnt do it.
Im just not sure mach3 can handle an arc with a rotational move within the same line, as the gcode reference button in mach3, this lines are very rarely coded.

Just tried the code generated on sheetcam with the tangential postprocessor on another pc hooked up to my mill, code is correct but Mach is unable to process the file at full speed.
It seems it has trouble running lines like this
N0160 G03 X3.7987 Y0.4022 A269.2359 I0.2249 J-0.0000 F100.0
It does the move it just does ir REALLY slow.

Remove the A axis part of that line and it does the G03 move correctly.
I wonder if a smoothstepper will take care of that problem... I have one in coming in the mail but it will be a while before I have the control cabinet done. I will give it a try without anything hooked up.

Hey Tweakie,
I just tried the trial version of sheetcam, it has a postprocessor called mach3 tangential that posts A axis movements.
Im attaching a test file I made, it seems to do what we are looking for it to do, the only thing is that Mach3 seems to have problems running the gcode at normal feed speeds and it moves really slow, at least with no machine attached to the pc (i dont have it ready yet).
You think you could give it a try to see if its just me or a mach3 problem in general? It has a 1" depth of cut so that I could see if the A axis was turning before clearing the material.

Thanks Tweakie,
Do you have the same problem when cutting a rectangle with rounded corners, when the cutter starts on one of the sides, transitions to the curve and after that when starting the next straight line (the knife is aligned) it slows down and the knife starts turning in the wrong direction while moving on the straight line. This happens to me when the rounded corners are arcs.
Good to be back here, its been a while

Im just setting up a tangential cutter on a new CNC table im doing, and I noticed this doing simulations on Mach and my cam software. Anyone able to tell why or how to avoid this?
This happens to me on a square toolpath with rounded corners.
I was able to post the toolpath with no arcs only small G1 moves and it appears to do what it is supposed to do, But I like G2/G3 better.
Hope anyone came up with a solution
Best Regards
Fernando

Hey Tweakie,
quick question, do you know if a sealed Co2 laser 200w can cut metal?
Do you know which metals and what thicknesses?

Thanks
Fernando
