TORCH NOT CUTTING COMPLET CIRCLE

Postby beaver greek » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:34 am

I have a Power-max 45xp with advance design and basic THC. When I cut a circle the torch starts at the lead end goes around the circle but when the torch stops their is about an 1/8" tab left. What do I need to change to cut all the way around the circle without leaving the little tab. I would appreciate any help Thanks. Beaver Greek

A table follows what the G-code tells it to do, If you CAM program has a simulate function use that before you cut and watch the path indicator as it move around the circles. The path indicator should start at a point and end at the point also then move to the next cut operation. It could also be your drawn circles are not complete
