toolpath on rotary axis does not display properly ( a axis )
« on: October 02, 2017, 08:09:11 AM »
when I load a rotary job on mach3  the toolpath does not display properly when first loaded it shows as a round wheel when I home the machine and redraw the toolpath it will display the job correctly but allways puts the job at machine x-0 , y-0  not displayed at the work coordinates of the job and if I start the job I will get a soft limit warning if I ignore the warning and continue  the job will run fine   I suspect the problem has to do with the header of the g-code for a rotary job versus a flat job that is on the table top    but all the things I have tried has not worked so now I am here hoping some one will have the answer to my delima
