Going into exact stop in small arcs
« on: October 07, 2010, 05:11:02 PM »
Has anyone seen this before?  It seems that when ever the machine reaches a small radius, it goes into exact stop mode and completes the radius as short, abrupt segments.  I have constant velocity mode selected.  I haven't changed the Mach setting in months.  The only thing I did was upgrade Sheetcam.  Larger arcs are fine.  Seems like any arc smaller than about 1/2" radius goes into exact stop mode.  Below is code segment.  This code goes into exact stop mode.   The repeating pattern I see is a short G01 move followed by a short G02 arc move.  I'm not sure why that's happening or if it should be happening.
