Author Topic: configuring Fusion 360 to get rid of "k word given for arc in XY Plane"  (Read 1147 times)

Hi im super new to all of this but, ive got a simple pocket drawn in Fusion 360 and when I run the post process the Gcode it spits out gives me "k word given for arc in XY plane."  Im guessing MAch 4 can only do arcs in one plane at a time.  So does anyone know if there is a way to modify Fusion 360 so that the code given is only arcing in one plane at a time?


thanks in advance,

Ask on the fusion forum for problems with fusion 360 , it’s not a mach4 one

The X/Y plane IS one plane, isn't it?

Yes it is.  I guess my guestion should have been, Has anyone set up fusion 360 so that the output is compatible with Mach 4?  and in response to the first reply, I am asking there too.  This isn't a problem with anything its simply a configuration problem specific to MACH 4 and Fusion.

I just figured it out, I think.... My ramp was set at "helix" and im thinking Mach 4 doesn't support that kind of plunging.

FYI Mach3 and Mach4 both support helical ramping.
I use them all the time.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.
