Radius to end of Arc Differs From Radius to Startline.

I just upgraded my machine to a Gecko controller and code generated by Cam Bam that worked on my old XML now generates this error.  What do I need to do to generate code that will work and cut the part the same?

The usual culprit is that the Arc center mode (IJ mode) is different between CamBam and Mach.

If you specify the Mach3 post processor, CamBam should insert a G90.1 or G91.1 code to tell Mach which
mode to use.

Good luck!

That was it.  I usually go in and set the post processor, but because it doesn't seem to save the settings when I start a new project I sometimes forget.

If you start a blank drawing, change any settings you usually use, like post processor, fast plunge height etc,
then save this file.  (The CamBam\templates folder is a good place).

Then in Tools - Options, there is an option called 'DrawingTemplate', where you can browse to select the file you have just saved.

Now each time you start a new drawing, it will inherit all the settings from this template file.

If you have different templates, you could also use the File - New from Template menu option.

I hope this helps.
