LazyCam (Beta) / Lazy Cam breaks up curves
« on: February 07, 2008, 11:33:35 AM »
OK, so I take my R12 DXF drawings from autocad (because lazycam will not read anything newer than that), which are composed of curves and lines for a part. I set everything up, but lazycam reads certain sections of the drawing weird. It breaks circles in two, and then posts g-code to cut them one piece at a time, and it breaks up other parts as well. This is a weird problem, any ideas?

I've posted the gcode for one of the parts, if you take it into mach, you'll see how it tries to cut. How do I either change my drawings or setup lazycam to cut smooth lines around the entire piece all at once?


General Mach Discussion / cuts are off a bit

I cut out some router clamps out of MDF using mach, the outside dimensions were about 1/16" too big, and the inside circle cutout was about 1/16" too small in diameter. I checked the g-code and it looked dead on (the farthest points away from each other were exactly what I designed). I've been through the steps per axis over and over and they are correct. I can't tell if it is a mechanical problem or software. Is there a way to compensate for this in mach?

I cut a few other things as well, and they all are off about the same.
