Lathe Gcode Arc Issue

Post by tmday7 » Tue May 14, 2019 12:04 am

Hello,
I have a Gcode that is getting an error that the Radius starting point differs from end point. I dont know what to change in my CAM to output a code that KMCNC lathe likes. I have tried Fanuc lathe and Haas Lathe post processor in Fusion360.
The Gcode roughs an OD with a radius at the beginning, then a finish pass. Tried just the finish pass and there was no issue.
Below is the entire program.
Any ideas what i need to change?

Thanks
Troy

Think i got it. I changed the post processor to output Radius Arcs instead of I,J,K. KMCNC preview looks good with no errors.

Strange. Lines:

N44 X4.055
N45 G1 Z-0.0756 F3.
N46 G3 X4.1 Z-0.1565 I-0.134 K-0.0808

have a 0.022524 inch difference in radii

You might also try the Fusion post processors here.
