Bunch of circles in my preview window?
« on: December 25, 2013, 06:53:28 PM »
Not sure what to call it but if you look at the attached image it is the pink lines in the window.
Run it thru the Discriminator CNC Editor it runs good(to me  since I am still learning)

I think I might have something set wrong in Mach3.
Anyone have any ideas on what is causing the pink areas?

Thank you I set it to Inc.
What does IJ mode do?

Specifies how the center point of arcs are defined.

Only if you use code that uses absolute IJ mode.
