Problem with G-code on Arches and circles.
« on: July 07, 2013, 01:30:55 AM »
I installed the newest version of Mill Wizard 1.0.9 on my laptop running windows 8
When I makeup and save the G-code files for circle and arches then copy them to my Desk Top PC running Windows XP with Mach3 Version R3.043.066 and try to run them I get a multitude of errors from complete circle cuts in the Arch Slot Program, to Error Block codes like (Zero radius arc, Block) in simple circle G-code, (Radius to end of arc differs from radius to start) in a Link G-code. Below are two of the G-codes files that will not run because of errors Blocks.  These errors seem to be related to mostly any arc or circle in the G-code
Thank
Michael

How do you have your Mach system set  for IJ mode on circles? It ought to be for relative IJ values. The setting is on the Config->General page, near the center of the second column.
