Hi Rich,
The DXF is different now, I changed Quadran as you advised... I am at work right now, Will post the DXF as soon I get home...
I am using LT V1.1 found on this forum marked as LasyTurn Mach 7...

Ta,
Laurent

Hi Rich,
Here is the code...  :-)
I must had an old version of the manual, it did not have the F section...
Will have a read.  :-)

Hi Rich,
This tool path I posted was not the real thing... It was just to show you what I meant.
In reallity I have 3 path.
1- roughing with a right hand tool.
2- fine with the right hand tool.
3- fine with the left hand tool.

This conbination sut the profile properly... But at the end I get a diameter of 12.8mm instead of 12.0mm.

If the tool tip is pre-compensated, How do I setup the "0" on Mach3 at the start?
I mean right now to set the tool to 0 coordinate I move the X axe down until the tip touches the top of the billet and set the DRO in Mach3 to the radius of the billet.
Are u saying I should substract 0.4mm ?   Is there any way to cancel the compensation? (I tryed with and without the tick in the "use tip center" it doesn't make any difference)

Ta,
Laurent

Hi Rich,
I don't have any tools define in Mach3 yet. I just had a look at the Gcode and Mach3 is following it to the letter.
But LT for some reason leaves an extra 0.8mm extra in the code. If youu look at the Z0.0000 you will see that X never go bellow 12.4000
where the profile is only 12.0000.
I will have a look at P19.

Ta,
Laurent

LazyTurn / Tool tip radius

Hi all,
I am experimenting with LT on a Boxford 125TCL.
I get a preaty good finish but got a little problem with the dimensions...
For some reason if I create a tool in LT with a 0.4mm tip radius, the Gcode output from LT leave an 0.8mm extra of material (0.4 radius)
If I create a tool with a 0.1mm tip radius it leaces an 0.15...mm extra ??

I am trying to turn a part with a finish radius of 12mm and get a 12.4mm with a rough + fine pass with a stock clearance of "0".  Any ideas ?
Am I doing something wrong?

Ta,
Laurent

General Mach Discussion / Anybody tryed that before?
« on: March 20, 2012, 07:12:36 AM »
Hi,
I am trying to enbed my PC running Mach3 into my CNC system.
And doing some researches I came across the Zotac NANO-VD01 mini PC.
This is nice and small...

I was jusf wondering if anybody tryed intalling Mach3 on one of these?  Would it have enough power/resources to run Mach3 ?
(I know there is not LPT port on it, but I am using a Eth-SmoothStepper board)

Ta,
RNR
