g-code won't run
« on: March 09, 2014, 11:45:07 AM »
Hi all,

I'm struggling to get this g-code to run on Mach3 and I can't for the life of me see what's wrong with it. When I load it up, the shape doesn't appear in the view window. When I attempt to run it, Mach skips to the first G3 line and then stops the cycle. Any ideas?

Do you  get a message in the status line ?  "Radius to end differs ........" ?

Might need to change your I-J setting to Inc in gen config.

'radius to end of arc differs from radius to start. Block = G3 Y232.4269 I0.0 J88.0'
