Hi RC

Actual cutting is not yet possible for me (retrofitting my lathe).
But of course i follow the development of Lazyturn so i can use it when i am ready.
Most of the shapes i see until now are not to be cut with one tool (see for example the shape in #497 (on the right will be a space that Will not cut with the diamant)) that is why i request to use more toolshapes in one project.
A tool with a widht of 0.5 mm Is not for the real world to use ( or you have to make very small parts)
I understand that it will not be easy but never ask is never done.

Hi RC

A little addition.
As soon as i select a tool the colors of the pointers disappear.

If i increase to 0.15 it will generate a toolpath (very nice) but see that the button change in a triangle??????
If i make the tool smaller (0.01) it also make a nice toolpath but take a long time to create
My pc is a dualcore 1.9ghz 1gb memory laptop so that should be sufficient.

Not exactly sure what you mean with the word quadrant but Chip already did explain that i have to draw on the - side of the origin so i get the Z in the - direction.
When i use the file Chip make for me (see second file) i get the same result
I used the latest release but the previous release did the same.

Hi Art

With this toolsettings a get a tooltip failure at the moment when the toolpath is almost made.

Hi Art

Did try the settings from RC and get the same results, no error on full acceleration and a 406 error on lower setting.

Hi guys

Here in Holland it is 8 o clock in the evening, it is Christmas evening, i should say STOP, go home to the wife and children, give them a kiss (or 2 or 3 or....) take a big bottle of beer (you all earn it) and have a very very Merry Christmas.
Thanks for what everyone have done and greetings:

Hi Art

In mach3 (turn) and Lazyturn the feedrate is in MM/min or inch/min but  on my old conventional lathe feed is in MM (or inch) per revolution.
Could it be possible to make Mach3 and Lazyturn in MM or inch per revolution or do i stand alone in this wish.
feed per revolution gives a constant chips thickness regardless the spindle speed.

Hi Rich

Roughing is just what you say "get away the bulk of material" so you want to do that quick with a great cutdepth and short chips, it don't have to be smooth just quick.
For that purpose you can use a special tool with other parameters (roughing with a very small tooltip is asking for broken tools) and a heavy body then finishing tools, also if the tip of the tool is not so nice oke but he needs to cut quite a Lot in a short time.
The bigger the workpiece the more important roughing will be.

The screenshot is just an example to show that some tools are not capable to get all the material away and will not go in every shape.
What i would like to see that you can point a part of the toolpath and tel the program to use a specific tool for that part.
That means also that the g1 code is not always direction chuck but sometimes direction tail.
Until now the button tool is used but with a button with a body of 0,5mm width there will be no large chips
