Need some coaching.... ???
Trying to run current trial version of Mach3
Using Featurecam 2014
seems to have trouble processing/executing G2 and G3 codes
Have i & j codes set to incremental

Mach3 just stops when it hits a G2 or G3 code

Hi Roger,
 post the GCode file you are having trouble with.
Might then see what is going on.

Hi Roger, you program worked fine on my Mach with the incremental box ticked for I&J and the distance move set to Absolute.  Jim

 Thanks for the feedback.  I think I have found my problem.  After studying the Mach3 list of G-codes, I found G90.1 for Turning on i and j incremental moves.  PostedG90.1 at the beginning of my Gcode.  My programs seem to be running fine.   Thanks again for your input.
