Mach4 error comp calc failed with current tool radius
« on: August 10, 2016, 07:06:47 PM »
Can someone help me understand why I'm getting this error message in mach4? I'm trying to machine an outter contour, using the wear option in fusion 360. And as soon as I get to this option in mach4 it throws the above error.

I'll admit up front that I know nothing about Mach4's implementation of tool cutting compensation.  But an obvious question would be what was the current tool radius when you got that error?

I've tried several versions of mach4 and I can't get the wear or control option to work. I can only get the in computer option to work. If I let the cam software choose the tool path everything work but when I output a g41/42 mach4 does not run.

Post up some code that fails.  I was running some cutter comp stuff the other day and all was fine.  So it may just be the way your post processor is outputting the code.
