When I generate the gcode it looks good on meshcam. But the square corner are radius on mach3.. The corner should be 90 degrees, but have radius.

Hi Wayne, and welcome to the forum. MeshCAM will "roll" the cutter toolpath around external corners, but the actual part will have square corners.

Of course, inside square corners will have the radius of the cutter.

Are you seeing something other than this? If so, could you attach a screenshot or photo of the result?
