Author Topic: Cut circle wizard always cuts the exact diameter (not accounting for tool dia)  (Read 2850 times)

Not sure what is going on?  I upgraded to the latest version 2.83 (from 2.79) and tried it again.  Same results.

Trying to cut a circle 1.08" diameter with a 0.5" tool at X=0 Y=0 (center of work piece is already drilled out).  Regardless of whether I select inside or outside the tool path always runs thru x=0.54 and x=-0.54 (like it thinks the tool has a diameter of zero)?  What's going on?


Look at the code and see IF it is using tool diam comp. IF so then you will have to set up the tool in Mach.  Look in the tool table and see what the setup is for that tool#.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
Just made a cut and it appears as though it was an operator error.  I was out of town for a week and forgot how to read the toolpath (thinking the white line was the center of the tool and not the cutting edge... LOL
