I worked all weekend on getting my machine up and running Bobcad tool paths and there are still some bugs in the EZTrak post that is available through Bobcad. I was wondering if anyone is using Bobcad to program an EZTrak mill. My mill is a 2001 model made by Bridgeport before it was bought by Hardinge. If anyone has a tweaked EZTrak post, maybe you'd be willing to help out or give some suggestions.
The main problem that I am having is with 2d profiling. It generates g-code with arcs and lines, but the machine just cuts a strange shape within the limits of the tool paths that doesn't relate in any way to the geometry of my drawing.
The picture shows the results of my programming. The shape on the top is what I'm aiming for (I cut it using equidistant offset). On the bottom two shapes I used the profile command to generate the tool paths. The perimeter of the top shape is what I was trying to program and the result was the two bottom shapes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
