Need help with radius
« on: October 10, 2012, 07:56:58 PM »
We just updated our Mach3 from 1.84 to the newest version. Running a file that we've run 1000s of times now is give us trouble when we radius a corner

Basically the code that hangs us up is

G91 G02 X ?? Y ?? R2.0

This line would usually give us a nice 2" radius corner and now just dives into the piece

I dont remember what the exact XY coords were but the file ran for years and now is giving us grief after the update

Post your code and your xml and I'll see if I can get it to repeat and if so see if I can find out why.

that worked but now the radius is to big so it isn't even cutting a radius into the piece ill try changing the radius size and see if that cuts what i need.
