bumped into this today
« on: October 28, 2009, 04:23:34 PM »
this is a code snippet that i have been using a few years .did a upgrade to ver 3.042.029  5 weeks ago,but have not run this code until today.
the G2 move in this code is used 12 times during the course of the program.when using ver 3.042.029 it will start this G2 move then half way
through it, turn it into a G3.so it starts as G2 then finish as a G3. this happens at all 12 of the G2 moves. did a edit on the code and divded
the arch into two parts and it ran ok.

original snippet
g01 x-.0625 y.1295 a60 f10.5
g02 x-.0625 y-.1295 r.1295
g01 x-7.9375 y0 a120

modified snippet
g01 x-.0625 y.1295 a60 f10.5
g02 x.0625 y0 r.1295
g02 x-.0625 y-.1295 r.1295
g01 x-7.9375 y0 a120

thanks bill

A G02 or G03 when using R can only be commanded with less or equal to a 180 degree move, in some instances the rounding error from the previous and next moves can make this 180.0000001 so the error happens, the new versions have this fixed.
