Hi all,
The LazyTurn Manual was updated and posted in Members Doc's.
Should be solid to about section 7.5, but past after that, need the program
to  mature before working more on it. The appendixes are included it. No real
updates done to them as compared to the last posted revision of them.

Happy reading, and as usual, any remarks, corrections, whatever, just post in this thread
and i will make corrections.

Not sure what you saying Dennis.
I would think that the CAM program , ie; Dolphin or what ever would have a postprocessor for MACH Mill and a seperate one for the lathe. In fact you may find there are two for the lathe,one for  diameter mode and another for  radius mode.I have used Fanuc to when trying some CAM programs and worked fine.

Now as far as Lazcam, it has it's owne postprocessor.

Hi Rich

Hi, Dennis

If the CAM package offers Mill and Lathe, I'm thinking separate Post's for Mill and Lathe, It would be a stretch to think thy-ed be combined.
