Thanks Bubba, I changed my default post processor to Mach 3 using your invaluable instructions.

Much appreciated,

My thanks to lloydsp, Bubba and DH42 you guys are the best. The simple solution you provided changing the General Config setting to I J Mode = INC worked. In the past I have cut arcs having one X Y origin without a problem with I J set to Absolute, the difference this time is the arc is being cut with several X Y origins; I doubt if I ever would have solved this mystery without your help. This is the best forum that I have had the pleasure of being a part of.

My best,

Hello DH42, I have tried several times to set my post processor to Mach 3, would you show me how to do it properly please?

Hello, I have now included my GCode, thanks.

Hi, for some reason when I draw a simple arc, create a pocket then generate a GCode it will not run in my  Mach 3 Mill program, it hangs up on the second arc cutting instruction and creates this error message  "radius to the end of arc differs from the radius to start"; I have Mach selected as a post processor. Will someone point me in the right direction please?

Hi David, thank you for your quick reply much appreciated, I checked my X and Z axis, they are setup properly I suspect the problem is in the GCode. I am sending you a copy of my program file and GCode; I would appreciate your input.

Hello, when I run my lathe code in Mach 3 the lathe cuts from left to right and at the end of the code the lathe tool advances to the center of the lathe chuck; what am I doing wrong?
