4 Axis
« on: January 14, 2017, 10:30:05 PM »
Hi,
Below are what you see in Mach3 and madCAM Simulation, but not on Mach4 it appear in this example that only the XYZ have generated the image and not the A axis.
When doing just a circle it is also just a flat line.
If you offset the circle and then make the G-code on the Circle it will then make a circle, however if you do the to a full 3D like this Ball example it generates the G-Code incorrectly.
I will post the extra sample in the next post.
Regards,
Mauri.

Hi,
This is the Offset G-code by 50% of the diameter.
The offset for axis was done on Rhino5/madCAM5 and NOT in Mach4, just the G-Code was used as it was produced in madCAM.
It shows an odd shape of the ball.

Mauri.
