cam bam corner cut weird

cam bam corner cut weird

when cutting out with cambam it starts with weird cut on the corner. lets say it needs to travel down the x axis first it will make a short jump or jerk to the y axis before it starts the cut. i have turned on and off corner cut with no change in the effect.

look at how the entry to the cut is setup.. you may have entry set to horizontal which make it approach the cut from the side instead of vertical.

also make sure the 'style pulldown' for the part or machining is set to 'cutout' or 'cutout with tabs' and not 'cutout+tabs+corners', unless you looking for corners.

not sure of your question, you talking about each cut phase like a pocket or profile type cut routine or how to start/ setup cambam with cutting of the whole part/stock..
