    Default How to set contour overlap on Haas machine?

    Machine is older, it is actually Mikron Haas VCE 500, but the control is very similar/equal to newer Haas mills.

    We have problem with this machine that it doesnt finish contour (toolpath) very precise, for example if you make a circle it will leave a small amount of material around start/end point of mill toolpath (circle).

    So we deal with this in CAM software, to extend this toolpath for example by 2mm... or make 2 circles instead of one.

    But this problem occurs only on this older Haas machine, we have 2 newer and they dont have this problem.

    Is there a parameter or setting on the machine which could overlap this contour for some amount so this problem wouldnt occur?

    Thanks in advance.

    It would seem to me that setting a proper leadin/leadout in the CAM setup would solve this problem.

    Nope, that is not true. Same program on newer machine doesnt have this problem

    ...try using G61 Exact Stop code or use G09

    That is not the solution its a patch. I want to fix machine not change gcode

    I guess the fix might be to call Haas and get a software/hardware upgrade to match the newer machines. Or at least see if they can suggest a parameter change that would fix that.
