Yes, The lead out would make a full depth cut into new material. Not a good move. Brian made some changes to the circle code after I last looked at it. I will get to him and work on it.

The wizard is based on the idea that a job will consist of more than one operation. It would be a waste of time to move to a tool change position between every operation. We do always make a move up to the Z rapid height as the last move of every op, since that is a place where any Xy move can be made to start the next operation.

 I tried to do it from your description and I see a circular ramp down that takes 3/4 of a turn, then a series of moves to clear the rectangle. I see nothing that is D shaped.

Please post a job file that shows the problem so I can see exactly what your conditions are.

You should not need to be administrator. Are you using the latest versoin, 1.0.11? Are you using the license for the new mill wizard, not the old NFS addons for mill? After loading the file the about screen will not change, you must close the screen and re-open it to see the change.

Sorry, no setting for inside. The link is meant to be like a connecting rod for an engine. I dont see a use for cutting inside one.

Funny, Brian bugs me all the time about link- he thinks no one would use it except a hobby model maker. I like it, and want to add the ability to have the straight lines be tangent to the two circles.

I do not see a problem in the llink.job.

It uses a 10mm dia tool. The circle pocket is 40 mm dia, and the gcode makes its last circle at 15mm radius. That will make the outside edge 40mm as requested.

The link parallel cuts are at Y=+15 and Y=-15. With a tool of 10 mm dia following that line the width left will be 10mm.

Have you actually cut a part and measured it?

Yes, the custom gcode will be displayed in the toolpath window. But if the custom code has errors then the entire toolpath display is blank. Brian has just given me a way to display an error message from the toolpath so in the next version we will have a message when this happens.

I will test the OK button problem and the radius in rectangle (I hope this is not true, we have tested it since the first version) in the next couple days and fix as needed.

thanks for posting job files, this help a lot in testing.

You must have received your license in a version before 1.0.09 The license was changed then. Send your pcID number to license@machsupport.com and tell them to need a new license for 1.0.11 There is no charge for a new license.

Watch the yahoo list for this, Brian has been working on this. We changed the license code in 1.0.09 but if you are coming from and older version then you do get a new pcID and will need a new license. Licenses are a PIA!

1.0.11 moved the file locations around. The installer puts them all in the programFiles folder, then on the first startup of the wizard the files are moved to the correct places. The license used to be copied to the .ini file, but now is moved to the program files folder. This all seemed to work fine on my test systems,  but of course, as soon as it hits the field we find problems.

Yes, we probably ought to allow material table to be moved. Ill see if I can get that in to a future version.

This whole business with file locations and trying to be microsoft standard has been a pain for everyone. I would have liked the old machh3 way of just doing our own thing. Dont you love standards

Glad you like rotate, Brian wanted me to do it a long time ago, but I dragged my feet. Turns out part of the program structure Brian designed made it pretty easy.

Sorry that would be much more complicated than this wizard can do.
