Yesterday I was trying to use the somple thread wizard and it wouldnt even bring the tool into the part. I assumed I was putting a wrong value or something in, but now Im thinking there may be something else going on?

Anyway, one of the products I have been making over the last year on my manual althe and mill is some handlebar risers for motorcycles. They are the biggest reason I decided on getting this shoptask with cnc option.

Anyway, I went into a different wizard, for arc cutting on the face. I put in all my values but now its threading Looking through the code it generated, it I and K values but no J.

right hand corner of the part is x1 z0. end of the part is x1 z-1

Arc is supposed to start/end at x0 z-.5 and x.8125 z0

Anyway, are the wizards working for anyone?

Can anyone tell me what this code is supposed to be doing?

On the machine ^that tapped. On the screen it showed the radius I wanted, sort of, but Im learning not to trust what the screeen shows...
