Problems with Circles
« on: November 25, 2010, 08:33:42 PM »
Hi all,

I seem to be having trouble with circles. 

I am using solidworks with visual mill as my cam and I have also used Bobcam and the same problem always happens which leads me to believe that there is something wrong in Mach 3.

I have a part with a series of circles from 4mm to 6mm in diameter followed by a profile cut.  The circles that are being shown on the screen are crazy big.  Probably 130mm  I don't know what is going on or what setting I am doing wrong.  The profile cut seems to be doing well but not the circles for some reason.

Here is the code.  Any help is appreciated

This is most likely due to your "IJ Mode" under "General Config" being set to Absolute, when it should be Incemental.
