Constant Velocity not working

17 Oct 2013 01:01 #39983 by aia0202
Hello all,

I have created some G-code using solidworks and solidcam which when loaded into EMC2 looks great, however when the program runs through the machine goes point to point, accelerating and decelerating to each point.

I found and read through the wiki page describing trajectory control and the use of G64 & G61 etc. but G64 is always enabled and this "stop start" behaviour is still happening.

This is a snippet of the G-Code. The constant velocity appears to work for the first part of the program however once the machine starts to cut and follow the points it does not appear to do this. The Cam simulation shows it to be ok so I was hoping there is a setting in EMC2 to enable this function. Or is there something wrong with the way the G-Code is written and so interpretted incorrectly by EMC?

Thanks for any help!

Ok, I think I may have answered my own question!

Using G64 alone does not seem to work in my case, but when the G64 PX code is used it works like a charm. Just replace X with a max distance to deviate from tool path.
