    Need help with error 144 on delta 20 control

    I'm going a bit nuts--using the solidworks cam system and post processor on a delta 20 control. It has it's glitches but in general, they're easily correctible. Unfortunately, I'm mostly an ignorant newbie when it comes to the more complex stuff. Most of what I do is really simple.

    But one is driving me a bit crazy and has me waaaay behind on something I need to get done ASAP

    Fault 144 CDC: Cutter R > circle R

    It's happening on a linear move and the manual is ZERO help in explaining the details of that particular fault on a linear move other than saying it applies. The whole program graphs on the machine fine and doesn't glitch at all when graphing--just when stepping through things with z disabled. It glitches at N0007 with a 1/2" endmill as T01. If I goober the tool diameter to .001, it does not glitch. If I goober it to .125" diameter it still glitches. The move between N0004 N0006 and N0007 in the X/Y plane is .26" just for reference.

    For those less familiar with dynapath, C1 is their conversational programming for cutter compensation to the left. C0 is off, C2 is right.

    Anyone have a guess or possible explanation so I can find a way to correct this glitch? I appreciate any help you can give.

    N0002(9)M03T01S3000E1$

    N0005(0)G0Z3.1$

    N0006(1)X0/Y0/C0Z2.75F5.$ (This is a little strange in my book but the post processor sets x and y to a zero incremental move [that's what the / means] and moves z, turning off cutter compensation for the rapid [C0]. It works though.)

    N0007(1)X-3.7544Y-.4013F20C1$ <---- pukes it out here with the 144 fault. Doesn't matter what cutter compensation type is used.

    ...Tool Diameter .500 would be stored for Tool 1...right? not .125

    Well, I resolved it through the back door. Solidworks cam chooses a lead-in radius that is 54% of the tool diameter--should be no problem, However to fix the issue I used 105% of the diameter and it seemed to resolve the issue.

    Thanks anyway

    I don't have my manual on hand but I think Dynapath expects to be one cutter diameter (or is it radius?) away from the next move when calling up and turning off cutter compensation. Your solution appears to confirm this.
