tried that already.. same result.
looks like i have to disassamble and work on the nuts to eliminate/reduce backlash...


Thanks alot!

im pretty sure it is not flex in that case. this material is very good /easy to maschine.

But i have quite a bit of backlash in the spindels (trapezoidal spindels) no ballscrews. as i also want to be able to mill manually ill keep the spindles.
I'll try to minimize the backlash by workung on the nuts tough...

thanks!

ok now i maschined a part to try out the code and it worked.
But the part turned out to be not very round at all.


heres a video of the milling of a test piece.

Question is why.
I have backlash compensation on and measured it with a dail gauge. the backlash is compensated very well...
also tried to run slower because the motors might have trouble slowing down, speeding up. but didnt change.
Any idea? Is there a setting n Mach3 to eliminate this?
sorry for my dumb questions. total new here. try to learn...


Thanks in advance
Dan

like i said noob at work :(
I didnt know that.

After putting both in different lines everything worked perfect!
Just finished maschining.

Thanks alot!!!

ok i tried to programm it as "incremental"
in the simulator it seems fine..

Mach 3 doesnt like it at all...

Tried to change the settings from IJ to avsolut and back to incremental... didnt fix my problem

Sorry if that might be a dumb question. in just learning
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply. I look into the config and it was set to absolute. G code was also programmed in absolute if im not wrong..
When i changed to incremental the cirkles were round.

Sorry for my ignorance, but shouldnt it work with Absolute also?

Thanks in advance

Beste regards

Edit.

my zero is on top of workpiece center of cirkle.
i go to x-9 y-20 to clear workpiece and go down in z then go to the startpoint of the cirkle...
hope this makes sense

Hello
im new here (and with programming G code). We learned G code in school about 9 year ago now i have a small cnc mill and start experimenting.

Today i wanted to mill  a round portion into a square piece of material.  G code look like that:
G17 G90 F200;
G01 x-14 y-20;
G01 Z-16;
G01 Y0;
G02 X-14 Y0 I14 J0;
G01 x-13.5;
G02 X-13.5 Y0 I13.5 J0;
G01 x-13;
G02 X-13 Y0 I13 J0;
G01 x-12.5;
G02 X-12.5 Y0 I12.5 J0;
G01 x-12;
G02 X-12 Y0 I12 J0;
G01 x-11.5;
G02 X-11.5 Y0 I11.5 J0;
G01 x-11;
G02 X-11 Y0 I11 J0;
G01 x-10.5;
G02 X-10.5 Y0 I10.5 J0;
G01 x-10;
G02 X-10 Y0 I10 J0;
G01 x-9.5;
G02 X-9.5 Y0 I9.5 J0;
G01 x-9.1;
G02 X-9.1 Y0 I9.1 J0;

I tried this G code on several simulator and it looked good.
My Mach 3 somehow made an egg out of the circles.

Sadly im not very experienced in Mach 3.
Could you guys please help me? Whats wrong? Settings, G code?

Thanks  in advance
Daniel
