« on: December 02, 2008, 01:10:49 AM »
Dear All

The problem is Gcode file generated by LC is not opening in the Mach and showing "Radius to end of arc differs from radius to startLine 29" this error. i am attaching some of the photos with test.tap file. can any body tell me why this is happening.

Thanks

sanlee,
Try reducing the width of the grooving tool. Also make note what your posting options are out of the program.
Play with the varius settings of the tool to see what happens for your learning.  You need to have a point tool to go around the ball
on the other side as a any tool with width would hit the profile in practical machining. Thus tool change required unless very small turning. Also make sure the sharp corners have a radius which is larger than the tool radius. Also review the material on LaycamTurn located in the members docs section.Post the dxf file .
Later......RICH
oops.... sorry see you posted it ;)

Thank you RICH

When i change the IJ mode from Absolute to Incremental my problem is solved. and i have downloaded MACH V3.041 in this my file seems similar to what you have shown. Also see the attached dxf file as told by you.

thanks again.

Now all you need is to make a point tool to cut it. :)
