Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Re: Cut a circle?
« on: October 22, 2009, 09:01:38 PM »
Did you try the code as I posted it, or try the wizard.  If the wizard works for some people and not for me I want to find out why.  It makes a circular shape of some sort, just not a circle.

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Cut a circle?
« on: October 20, 2009, 08:41:45 PM »
Maybe just me, but I have never been able to get the NF wizards to cut a circle.  I have never really gotten any use out of the NF wizards because I just don't trust them,  if I can't get it to cut a circle. Andy's circle routines work fine.  Please help.  I'm using 2.83

I entered:
Tool Dia .1875
X center 0
y center 0
Circle dia 1.0000
Cut outside
Depth .008
Rapid height .5000
Step depth .008

G code I get:
