LazyTurn / Bug? Gcode output
« on: July 14, 2011, 10:05:26 AM »
While creating Fine paths for an MT2 taper, Lazy Turn is outputting GCode with empty lines and no termination. Here is an example:

N3985    Z3.4976 X0.8000
N3995    Z3.4181 X0.8000
N4005    Z0.0000 X0.8000
N4015    Z0.0000 X0.8000
N4025  N4035  G0 X0.8050 <------------------ Problem here!

There are multiple instances of this for the fine path of this part.

MACH does not like this. It is easy to edit out, but it would be nice if this problem was located and eliminated (even if that means educating me!)

LazyTurn / Feature request Debug Tool

When using the debug tool, it would be nice if  the tool X and Z coordinates were indicated after a debug location has been selected.

In use, as I click along the path, a box would show up adjacent to the tool, indicating the X and Z of the tip. This feature would aid in knowing that the correct tool path was selected for examination.

LazyTurn / Thank you for Lazy Turn

I've been using Lazy Turn for profiling for about 6 months now. I think you have achieved your first goal. It is a GREAT program for the price! Thank you.  It is simple to use, it works well, it is something I've come to trust. I realize this is a hobby project, but I hope that some outside encouragement will help motivate you into moving on to development stages 4-7 (Facing, boring, cutoff, etc). It would be a great service to those of us with CNC Lathes.

I am having the same problem as Kingjamez. I would appreciate a simple example, complete with gcode. The pdf file helps a lot, but I don't understand the need for the G52. Yes, I understand keeping the tool off of the part at the start, but when do I turn it off? An example using G52 would be great. Why aren't the g52s automatically placed in the code?

Question 2: Do I or don't I need to put offsets in Mach tool table when using LazyTurn? Section 5.2 seems to imply that I don't (as does 6.1?)
