General Mach Discussion / halfmoon instead of circle
« on: April 25, 2011, 04:59:03 PM »

I've got one strange problem with cutting.  It seems like mach3 periodically changes how the motor work.  Sometimes pressing a direction arrow will make 3 motors move while other times everything is normal.  It did it to me during a test cut (just retro fit a plasma).  I wanted to make a 5" circle with a center hole.  It did not move to the right spot to put the hole in, then it cut the outside of the circle as a half moon. 

I'm adding the gcode as txt file and sending a picture of what it made.
