    G Code of enormous radius convert to lines

    Today, a customer reported a issue of router machining, some contoues are not machined but the NC code simulation is good.

    Here is the pict that some part are not machined well.

    This is the code simulation

    comparing the G code, we could see that the radius is in enormous value.

    N2782 G01 X116.6346 Y2291.313 Z-40.0

    It's normal that some control couldn't support the big radius arc code. We could correct the part drawing to avoid this issue, but it's not convenient for programer to check the arc radius each time, so the best solution is to do something in postprocessor.

    We modified the postprocessor, checing the arc redius when generating nc file. The arc would be converted to line segments if the radius exceeds the Max limitation. Tolerance would be controled also when the arc is convered to lines.

    Control NCStudio is used on the machine. But START control for plasma cutting machine should has this issue also if I am not wrong.
