More likely it is the code that is bad.

Post the line of code that are bad

Hard to tell with just the error code


This is a reply to the same problem at the zone:

Found the problem to be in the drawing, well I say that, I resolved the problem by redrawing one of the arcs.

The problem occurred where one arc joined another. Looking at the CAD drawing everything looked fine, the 2 arcs met exactly, however when the drawing was loaded into LazyCam and the offsets done there was a gap between the 2 arcs??

Found by loading the .tap file into NCPlot.

Interestingly the problem was not there before the offsets were done??
