Thank you gentlemen. Unfortunately I am now away for a couple of weeks so will be unable to action any changes, but will sign in again on my return.

Thanks for the quick response. I used LinuxCNC-turn. Though in fact Linux and Mach both produce very similar Gcode. I have not tried to run the code as it does not produce the required product.
I have attached the code which I believe you will see does not generate the required profile.

Just started trying Cambam on the lathe. Developed the attached file. The Toolpaths look great but the Gcode does not. Not at all sure where my error is, I would be obliged with some ideas.

Problem Solved.
That is what I did however IMHO there is a bug in the software. The parameters used for "Engrave" are actually the parameters used for general machining, the ones indicated by the unnamed flag in "Cam Styles/Standard mm". The parameters setup for engrave do not seem to be used at all. Thanks for your response.

I have altered the settings for engraving ( tool dia, depth etc) in the "System" tab and saved settings in "Tools", but when I run "Machine - Engrave" my "Part" shows the original defaults. I am obviously doing something incorrectly, but what?

Thanks for that I will have a play.

Wonderful, thanks for the explanation Ralf and getting another post whilst writing this, Lloyd also. I now have complete control over Cambam (until the next time!)

If I set optimisation the gcode makes a 4mm cut in z then makes the circular cut at that level. If optimisation is set at "None" the circular cuts include a Z component giving a spiral infeed. I just cannot see what is causing it as I have made correct spiral pocketing cuts before. Thanks for your interest in my problem.

Thanks for that kvom. I thought that I tried the different optimisation options but obviously had not. With regard to the .4 increment it was left at default just to generate some code. This value did not affect the invalid Gcode output. The question remains, why do the 0.9.8 and 0.97 optimisations not work correctly in this bit of code?

My apologies pocket 60 attached

I just want a 60mm diameter pocket 18.5mm deep cut with a 13mm endmill. feed per layer 4mm. I want spiral lead in and have set Spiral with spiral angle 0.
The Gcode generates a G1 z on each layer then a G2 with no Z component. I cannot see what I have done wrong. I have generated spiral pockets before!
