Large circles in g-code...
« on: August 04, 2012, 08:04:14 PM »
hello everyone,

Well I'm back with another problem...

I posted g-code using a trial version of Vectric Cut3D using a sample file supplied with the software that was supposed to allow you to save the tool path to g-code.  When I load the g-code file using Mach3 several large (magenta) circles appeared in the g-code preview window.   looked like these large circle were actually short circular segments between points A and B that went around in the opposite direction from point B to point A.

What do you think?  Does anyone know what caused them?

Thanks,
Dale
