Hi, Ray

As Hood stated is correct, It will all make sense at some point.

Try 58254.222, That should move you approx. 1 inch,  In the end you need adjust the Step's Per value to set/calibrate the axis to move "1 Unit" for mm or inch which ever your using.

Then you will probably need to use backlash setting to get any slop cleaned up so both direction's will move 1 unit.


Hi, Lawley

Use a DXF file Preferably acad12 format.

Edit: I was thinking you were referring to LazyCam ooop's

Hi, Rich

Check what your Setup, Load Options, Connection Line Tol. is set to, If it's set to .001 or .0001, try setting it to .01 and reload the DXF file.

It may help in joining the Chain/segment's together, If it doesn't help post the dxf will look at it.

Hi, Ed

I looked at your dxf, It's just drawn in the wrong place in your Cad program.

Pic 1 your dxf.
Pic 2 moved to the proper location the square border need's to be removed also.
Pic 3 LazyTurn pic.
File 1 New dxf.


Hi, Ed

I sent you a PM message, top of this screen by your user name pic 1.

Ver 1.1 is most current post #1067 , Did you install LazyCam Update from the downloads page, You may need this also pic3.


Hi, Ed

"Art" has been working on LazyTurn, To be used with Mach3 and "Rich" has been working on a manual for it .

Hears a link that will get you to the LazyTurn hear at Mach Support, http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/board,73.0.html

I wouldn't get to worked up on the "tool tables" at the moment and read through the LazyTurn and standard G code used in turn manual for starters, Theirs descriptions for tool tip radius and offset angles and lot's of folk's, we'll help get you going.

It'll all start to make sense in a while.


Hi, Ed

Someone will be along soon I'm hoping,

Edit: I read through your post to fast, Your tool description listed are standard descriptions for general lathe tools more or less. Lt,  Rt and Straight cutting tools, We just need to find a good basic book on lathe operation and then a transitioning to CNC lathe reference also.

So stand by for the weekend traffic. :D
