Software for process compensation moves
« on: September 04, 2008, 02:50:49 AM »
Hello.

I am looking for a software for lathe turning that would have:

1) for input a gcode file with compensated moves (that uses G41 G42 ....), for example the output of a mastercam software
2) that outputs the resulting moves without compensation that could be used in mach, since mach does not process the G41 and G42

Any ideias ?
Thank you

which verision of mach3 are you using ? , Mach has support for compensation moves G41 G42 etc

most current cam software packages support G41 G42 , can you post more information of your problem and perhaps attach gcode test file ,  comment the line you have a problem with etc

From what I am aware of, compensation is not fully functional in Mach3, at least in turn mode.
Do you use turn mode (lathe) with compensation ?

Thanks
