General Mach Discussion / OD Taper Wizard Help Needed
« on: June 28, 2011, 12:41:21 PM »
Hi Guys,

I recently got my lathe set up, but am having problems using the OD Taper Wizard.  I'm trying to put a 45 deg taper (90 degree included point angle) on a 1" diameter rod.  The wizard seems to want to make a taper with the wrong angle.  It's making the angle very blunt, or flat.  The odd thing is that the display of the toolpath looks right.

What I'm looking for is a point on the end of the bar, that goes from a point all the way to the outer diameter (no step).

The specifics:
I am a licensed user.
I am using Diameter mode.
OD Taper settings are as follows:

X End:  0.0
Angle:  +45.
X Start: .5
Z End: -.5
Z Start: 0.0
Clearance: .1

I have no idea what I'm missing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

General Mach Discussion / Config/State only for licensed versions??
« on: July 25, 2007, 04:38:27 PM »
Hello All,

I am trying to set up a trial version of Mach 3 to work with a 3rd party break out board.  The instructions that came with the board refer to going into 'Config/State'.  I have been unable to find that in the Config menu.  Am I looking in the wrong place, or do I need to buy the full version to get access to that area?  I plan to buy soon, but have to recuperate a little from the cost of the mill.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!!

Ian
