**Share Your GCode / Cutting circle**

« **on:**January 20, 2014, 08:46:01 AM »

Hi Guys,

I'm using solidcam to generate my gcode. I've noticed that my circles and arc's are not very smooth. As a simple test I create a circle and generated gcode to go around the perimeter.

Does this code look ok to you, can you see why my part looks like it's been cut from lots of straight lines rather than one smooth radius??
