Turning wizard problem - "FilletRadius is too big"
« on: May 08, 2010, 05:43:15 PM »
For the record, I'm a new user to Mach3, using it in demo mode to try to get the hang of it.

I used the OD Turning wizard today to reduce some stock.  It worked fine as a test, leaving lots of material to finish the job.  

I manually ran a turning pass (i.e., used the handwheels), moved everything back, mic'd carefully and reset X and Z to 0.000  

I then reran the wizard with my now careful measurements, ran the program and found that the part was still too big.  Unexpected, but I decided to look into this later; for now, I just wanted the part.

So I went back to the wizard again and filled in some new values, clicked "Post Code" and got the message

"FilletRadius is too big"

and now that's all I get, no matter what I type in for values.  Typing 0 into the Fillet Radius field or -1 or 1 or anything at all results in the same message.  Quitting the program and restarting does not fix it.

Basically, this wizard is no longer useful!

Am I missing something?

Thanks for any thoughts.

I can greate the the error message, but i can also change the fillet radius and thus make the error go away.

Remember that output from the wizard is influenced by your configuration, if you are in diameter mode don't use radius values, and
BTW some of the wizards only work when in radius mode if memmory serves me.

Can you post a screen shot of your current inputs for that wizard?
