A typo I assume when you inserted this into your file, your start position is Y6977.0000 instead of Y0.6927

Um...That's what populates. I don't type that in. Am I supposed to?

I don't understand what you mean by "That's what populates."

The position your in before the arc is not correct for the coordinates of the arc.

To use this,
What I do is enter data into the top five (5) fields, I then select the arc direction then press the [Show me] button to display the arc.
When it does this, the program populates the [Starting Point for the Arc] and [G Code for the Arc] data.

Ok, I understand now.

In your G code your not at the starting point for the arc and that is why you get the error.

What is the move before the arc and the arc in your G code?

I got it! (sort of...)

I typed everything in, and for a [Starting Point] I used =
x1.9375 y5625

When I clicked on the [Show me] button, it re[populated and changed it to the following =
x2.0417 y06977
This was giving me the error, so I thought I'd try it once it had already populated.
It worked!
I modified the arc beginning from 315 to 307.3 and I my starting point is

x1.9374 y0.6016

I can see a slight deviation at the start, but the ending lines up!! I think a bit of adjusting on the circle's "Center" might line it up perfectly!!

I'll let you know, thanx!

Is this

(New arcbuddy - still an error)
(G1 x2.0417 y06977)

supposed to be this?

(New arcbuddy - still an error)
(G1 x2.0417 y0.6977)

note the decimal point.

BTW, the N numbers don't do a thing except clutter up your G code file. If your using a post processor you can turn them off.
