Circles

Post by OakeyDokey »

I am trying to edit a post processor for my Sei 810. The problem I have at the moment is that cut2d outputs a circle as 4 segments. My router pauses after each segment, so I'd end up with 4 burn marks if I was actually cutting into wood. Does anyone know how to get around this problem? If I take the arcs command out it all goes to pot.

Does your machine controller have an option to change from Exact Stop to Constant Velocity? That will smooth the moves for you

Thanks for your reponse. Unfortunately I don't recollect seeing a setting for constant velocity when I went through the manual, but I'll have a double check.

Hi Gary,
Unfortunately my machine doesn't run on G code. It runs on Sei's owner controller language.
Thanks, Paul
