pocketing problem
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:25:14 AM »
I am using the laser post. When i engrave lines it works fine. When i use the pocketing function it adds a bunch of concentric circles to the toolpath when i load it to Mach. In the lazycam screen everything looks correct.

In Config / General Config.   change the IJ Mode.

Ideally, all Gcode files containing arcs should specify the G90.1 or G91.1 (as appropriate).
