Thanks in advance for any help.
When using the draw circle/ellipse tool to create circles everything seems fine during the toolpath preview. But when executing the toolpath on the Masterwood P416 (using the supplied postprocessor "M-wood P416 ATC") the arcs are interpreted incorrectly. Instead of a circle I get a 4-point star with curved inward sides. The four quadrant arcs of the circle are flipped inward.
However, if I create the circles in CorelDraw, export them as DXF, and import them into Aspire then they machine properly. This has been my workaround in the past but it has become a hassle.
Another issue is that the M-wood P416 ATC post processor seems to work 99% but it never establishes the spindle speed at G172. I always have to go into the code and add "S12" at the first G172.
Any enlightened sous out there??? Thanks!
