    Having real problems with my 4th axis . Can any one help. IV just installed it and made a small model in fusion this is my first time using the 4th . When I run I code it runs ok for the most but the the 4th (A) slows down to almost a stop . It crawls along at about 1mm a minute . Then after it gets to where it's going all speeds up again. It does this 2 or 3 times in the operation . IV run it 5-6 times and it happens at the same place every time. I'm scratching my head not knowing if it's the post processing or fusion or my new 4th axis or my stepper. iv added some videoAny help would be cool

    What speeds and feeds have you selected in the F360 CAM settings tab? In your screen shot, the machine speed drops right down at the line marked, where there is a significant move in A.

    I'm probably talking the proverbial... but 490?, your Mach3 installation is licensed?

    Both examples that you show freeze with very slow feed rates (F554/F373) compared to the preceeding gcode - can you confirm that these lines do indeed have the lowest feed rates upto that point in the gcode?

    If so, add a zero (x10) and try an air-cut, see if the behaviour is the same
