I'll be out for a while, but if you will post your gcode file as an attachment maybe someone can load it and compare.

Hi, Ron

Theres a way in Lathe to Fix this sort of Arc problem, Looking in Mill now, Haven't found it yet though.

Thanks, Chip 

Your file loads fine hear for me, It's a I,J issue in Arc's, What Post processor are you using.

Go to the Config menu then General Config and change the IJ Mode to Inc, that should cure your problem.

I think it will depend on your code but I would think Distance mode would be Absolute.

Hey,
Was gone for ThanksGiving weekend, just  got a new computer after 5 years...my P4 3.0 kicked the bucket

I found it on ebay:

-Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Quad Core (4 processors!!!  :o)

-Asus Striker Extreme LGA 775 SLI ATX Motherboard

-EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS Video Card (Swich this out for a Nvidia Quadro 1400 PCI-E 16X)

-Two 750GB (1.5TB) SATA II Hard Drives (Raid 0)

-4GB PC2-6400 DDR2 RAM

-Dual 20X DVD Burner

I can OverClock @  3.744 GHZ  for each of the cores at a 3663 FSB :O...my feet are getting alittle warm thou :)
(Haven't OC it thou)
...like running a Core 2 Due @ 14.976 GHZ

I would not suggest the Asus Striker motherboard...unless you have alot of time to set things up on it..without breaking it.
Great for 3d modeling CAD/CAM work, but since everything is so new alot of Driver and software updates every month.

I would suggest running this computer in 64bit to take advantage of the 4gb ram...

I'm using a AMD64 3800 with 1gb RAM and Nvida Quadro 1400 PCI-e 16X to run Mach on my machine.
