LazyCam possible bug.
« on: May 06, 2007, 12:28:48 PM »

I am a newbie using Mach3 and one of my first test was to draw a circle on AutoCad and exported it as DXF  R12 file  to LazyCam  and after I Gcode it the circle was turned into a deformed circle. I have been trying to find something alike on the forum to this problem and I haven’t found it. Please, someone that could help me fix this problem. Thanks in advance, Andrew.
Here is the code.

Another noob here as well. Eating my NoobCakes here. I did not load your data. But did the same thing in Rhino. Circle with 1 diameter, into LazyCam, into Mach3, into foam. No problems.
My file however, showed plasma mode... Probably because I simply 'ran' through the conversion not looking left or right.
Cut five times and still to short...

I am sorry to jump into conclusion that fast. The LazyCam  is perfect and I apologize for  that. I wrote a gcode myself for a circle and got the same deformed cut. I checked the machine and it was loosing steps, something never happen before. I did some adjustment here and there and I got it working perfect. Thanks and forgive me for my mistake. Andrew.
