Strange hole problem
« on: May 01, 2018, 03:08:19 AM »
hello
Wondering if anyone can help.

I have a diy plasma table with mach3



There are 2 files attached both created with sheetcam.

The file 'hole16thc' cuts a lovely hole.

The file 'zbrackets' cuts only the lead in for the hole.

They are created using a simple post processor, I had created them before using a post processor with a floating z with exactly the same results.

I am still in my infancy at reading G code and I'm wondering if the files are ok then it must be something else/

Thanks

Strange. I haven't got a plasma unit but both toolpaths display just fine in my Mill profile.

One thing that I have seen happen is that mach3 can behave badly with full circles - Try redefining the G03 movement in line 190 as two seperate 180 degree arcs in order to force the thing to do a complete circle.
