Hi, Brian

Was editing My post above during your Post, see above.

Cut Info Window " Set All Layers" won't up-date All Layers, best I can see.

It would be nice to have a toggle up/down beside "Layer Name" in Info Layer Window.

This would allow Quick Review of Info before Post without moving back and forth in the Project window through all the Layers & Chaines.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Mark

Thinking back on our water-jet cutter / Mach3 conversion, We had the same problem with autocad DXF's.

It will be a day or so until I can go in and figure it out.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Brian

Small problem's.

Clean works after a few clicks to optimize path and remove a redundant line in bottom left square.

At load "Remove Duplicated Lines" misses it and without Auto Clean checked main window Clean doesn't seem to work as above.

Optimize gets Duplicated Lines again, But messes up Optimize Path now.

It would be nice to have a toggle up/down beside "Layer Name" in Info Layer Window

Cut Info Window " Set All Layers" won't up-date All Layers, best I can see.

In "Post Window" Reinstate the Return to Start/0,0 Option Check box,

You've been working hard.

So Nice !! Thanks, Chip

Hi, Willem

What version of Mach3 are you using on your computer's ?, It" under Help tab.

Using Mach3ver2.0.073 hear, Could not duplicate your top Picture hear.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Mark

I don't use autocad, turbocad ver. 8 hear.

I tried to look at your DigaProbe.DXF, Used Rinocad, Bobcad and Turbocad 8, no luck hear to see it.

I'm sure someone will jump-in Hear with Info.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Willem

There are some errors in the post from LazyCam at the present time, You can edit the Gcode for now.

There should be corrections soon for this, Brian is working on Mill & Plasma post's now Lathe after that.

If you want a front view in Mach goto Config, ToolPath, Un-check the ShowTool as Above Centerline in Turn, Check Box.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Willem

Compare your Mach settings on your computer's, Look at Config, ports & pins, Turn Options, "Reversed Arc's Front Post" settings, Should be the same both computers.

Also check after running the same file on both computer's that, Config, General Config, that  "Distance Mode" is set to Absolute on your first computer.

Enter on the MDI line a G90 enter, then Regen the View on your problem Computer.

At present LazyCam is only posting G91.1 for IJ Inc. preamble setting's and not insuring that G90 "Distance Mode" is set to Absolute Mode.

G90 & G91 set "Distance Mode" ABS or INC.

G90.1 & G91.1 set "I,J" Mode ABS or INC.

Hope this Helps, Chip

I think the biggest problem is that your Lathe Tool cutter doesn't have enough length, Also cutter/ tool angle .

Draw the part to scale, setup the Lathe tools to scale, whether Inch or MM, L-Cam uses units as dose Mach.

If you have a cut that's 1 inch deep then the tool needs to have a setting that's at least 1 inch also.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Bob

Run the Mill a few time's, Load some other files, Then run lathe again.

I've had this happen several time's, Haven't been able to trace it to anything except when edditing G-code Files.

It will sometimes do it in mill with a view screen Error Msg., Wth blank screen.

No real answers Hear, Chip
