ARC rough look like HEX
« on: October 12, 2009, 04:47:37 PM »
Arcs programed using linear moves.  Arcs are very rough.  Is there a setting, ARC circle smoothness, will lazycam generate I & J?

Not really sure what you are asking but best bet is to do your dxf with arcs rather than short line segments.

It doesn't make a difference if you use text or arc to create letters.  LazyCam will or the version I'm using will create linear moves instead of G2 or G3 J & I  for arcs.  I thought maybe I was missing something, because I'm not familiar with LazyCAM as I am with other CAM softwares.
