Hi Graham,

Thanks for this however is it possible to calculate using the xstart and xend and the zstart and end, without having to know the (small?)diameter of the job?

With the wizzard for taper how does it facter the angle you imput?

Also one last question is it in radians or degrees?

Thanks,
Sorry for the questionaire

Hello,

I am trying to program a double taper in G-code.  I am having some difficulty understanding how the angle works.  I can make one sided taper like the wizard, however I want to go back the other way like this :

<>

The decending taper would be varying in size and shape eventually but for the moment I would like to be able just to mirror the existing taper.

Thanks,

Andy

General Mach Discussion / Turn Newbie

Hi There I am new to Mach 3.

I would like to input a diameter of a part into mach 3 turn and then input a diameter that I want the machine to turn the part down to.  I have looked at the wizards and cannot see this, I current set an x start and end with a z start and z end.

Help,

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Everyone,

It was all going so well, I have set up mach 3 and everything is moving before my eyes as I press the arrow keys.

Now i am stuck.  What I am trying to do is make a pen, I have drawn the part in Alibre free version (Just a simple cylinder).  I load this into lazycam and everything is fine (not a 100% sure but I can see the part).

I get a tap file and load it into mach3 and there is a rectangle,  When I start mach3 it runs through the file but as a mill would with powered tools following an out line. 

I would like to make is a pen, however if this was a pen blank then it would 'smash' right into the blank.  Some how I need to get LazyCam to account for the wood and don't know how.

I have been going at this CNC stuff for about a week and it is slowly all clicking into place  ;D

Thanks,

Andy
