I’m having a peculiar issue with my Maslow and I’m hoping it will mean something to someone here.
I am troubleshooting cutting small circles on the Maslow. When I generate a circular pocket using JSCut, it spits out gcode that is hundreds of G1 (linear move) commands. When cut on the Maslow with Ground Control, these circles are very close to true. I’ve posted an example of the working gcode here and here is a photo of the resulting cut:
When I do a similar circular pocket in Fusion 360 (post processing through the Maslow post) it creates gcode with just a few G3 (arc move) commands instead of the hundreds of G1 commands. That seems reasonable enough to me. But when I cut them on the Maslow using Ground Control, the circles come out all oblong and weird.
I’ve posted an example of the gcode that doesn’t work well here and here is a photo of the resulting cut (intended to be two concentric circles at two different depths:
Both input gcode files look correct in Ground Control and simulate correctly using NC Viewer. It’s just the cut itself that is nonsense when using the G3 commands.
Does this ring any bells for anyone? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
