    CNC lathe wont read cam max speed

    Hi all!

    I am trying to use constant surface speed in Fusion360 CAM to use in a cnc lathe with Mach3 turn. The problem is that the lathe wont read the max rpm that I have set up in fusion360 and just increase the chuck speed to the max speed possible when approaching the minor diameter of the part. I have tried different combinations but wont work. Any idea what could it be?.

    This is an example of the code

    N10 G90 G94 G18
    N11 G21
    N12 G28 U0.
    N13 G28 W0.

    The Artsoft website seems to be down, so no access to the forums right now.

    Just for fun try replacing the M48 with a G50, that seems to be the standard for the CSS spindle speed limit for a number of other controllers. Be careful, not sure what will happen.

    Hi Jim, thanks for your reply.

    Changing M48 with G50 wont make a difference. One thing I have noticed is that, the program starts normal, but at line N23, the program appears to stop, but the feed speed just slows so much that is almost imperceptible. If it wasnt for the last decimal in the DRO changing very slow, I would not have notice there is movement at all.
