Re: Circles and CNC

Awesome, thank you!!

In the interim, I decided to to uninstall QCADCAM from my windows7 notebook, reboot & them perform a fresh install.

I will remove the old LinuxCNC_mill.js file from the cam/cam congif directory and copy this new one in. Thanx again!
(Fingers crossed) :D

Re: Circles and CNC

A couple of addendums... #1) Yesterday my work was being done on my home machine, which is a Windows machine & where I do the majority of my design work. #2) Today I had been doing this on the Linux machine. I'm not sure if that makes a difference...both are running the same version of QCADCAM. Oh, ...

Re: Circles and CNC

My Linux CNC machine is not hooked up to the internet. So I brought it in, and ran the updates. I have QCADCAM installed on that machine as well (version 3.7.2) So I decided to run some tests on that while at my desk inside the house I took my original QCADCAM image, made a new layer, then drew the ...

Re: Circles and CNC

I changed the G21 to G20 in your file and encountered an ARC error again. So then, I changed the size of my drawing from 4inches to 25inches. The export worked and loaded fine...however, the Z axis was EXTREMELY high, and instead of following the arcs (there are about 5 of them) it broke each one in...

Re: Circles and CNC

Thanx for the file!! Let me start off by saying that I did not receive an error. :) However...I noticed that when I loaded the exported file into the CNC machine, the measurements were not what I remembered. When I looked at the "header" of the code, I saw that G21 was listed first, meaning the code...

Re: Circles and CNC

NOTE: Lines #2 and #3 were hand coded in by me (the were NaN)
Also...the Initial X and Y coordinates are negative, ad that doesn't make sense either as I have the image well within the positive side of the area!

Re: Circles and CNC

Howdy - Thanx for the reply Andrew~! Here is the thing: I have exported it using the "GCode" option as well as the "LinuxCNC" option (which was a *.js script file written by someone from the LinuxCNC forms) In the past, I have exported designs that have contained arcs before, and there has been an i...

Circles and CNC

Howdy all (again) I am seriously new to this - so my apologies if this is something obvious!! NOTE: I saw elsewhere about "converting lines and arcs into segments" (command: OG) but that didn't work either. :/ My situation.... I am having a problem exporting a DXF file with circles and arcs! I will ...

Points on a line (curve and/or angle, etc...)

Howdy all~! Would it be possible to have points follow a line? Example: if I made a Circle or Arc, could I have a set number of points evenly distributed along that path? (the image below I did by hand. It is only 5 points but I do a *LOT* points in my work) http://www.sterling-software.com/QCadCam/...
