Question on Manufacturing imported STEP files

Question.

 

I import a STEP file and want to see about manufacturing it in a Mill CNC (3 axis) process.  When I create the G-code, the radii come in as flat lines.  Is there a way to either import the STEP file with radii intact or a way to modify the file to make Fusion know that it is a radii?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi, when you measure this radius, does it give a radius dimension?  If yes, then the operation you are coding is a 2d or 3d operation?  Most 3d operations will consider everything a surface, 2d should see it's an arc and output as such.

Usually Step files come in correctly, check by measuring the radius.

I am using 2D profile and the code is generating as:

 

G1 Z0.0394 F60.
Z-0.4349
X1.3153 Y-0.7187 Z-0.4395
X1.3151 Y-0.7179 Z-0.4439
X1.3148 Y-0.7166 Z-0.4482
X1.3143 Y-0.7148 Z-0.4524

Never mind, I looked ahead of the code and everything is correct. I was missing the Z move which is contouring down.
