Also still cant bore due to the negative values for X that I need, do you think you will get that worked out or is it going to be a problem?
I fixed the DRO so you can enter negative numbers. I still have the test and error message. I suppose I could make the message just a warning, and go ahead and post the code. If you are using a back tool you will understand the message.
One thing that gets me every time is the Start X , I keep putting in the dia of the stock and it will run a pass at that dia so have to remember to deduct my DOC from stock so as not to waste a pass. Also similar on a finish pass, say its 52mm dia and I want to take to 50mm with DOC of 1mm then it will do two passes if I put in 52 as start and 50 as end, first pass being 52mm. So what is needed is 50mm for X start and 50mm for X End, just seems a bit strange to have to do that?
I thought about that for a while. It seems wrong to make Xstart the stock value, then start cutting at a different number. Making Xstart be the actual start value seems more correct.
