V2.84 fixes thread mill bug
« on: March 13, 2010, 05:35:26 PM »
I found thread milling, for LH internal threads was adding tool radius to the thread radius instead of subtracting it. It was also making a Z prep move before going to Xcen Ycen, which might be real bad if the tool was off center!

As usual, unzip this file into the Addons folder, then change the folder name from Newfangled284 to simply Newfangled

It was just reported that the code generated by this version has an incorrect version number in the header, for example:

(Code by Newfangled Wizard, 7/5/2010)
(Version 2.83)   *********************************should be 2.84
(Program Posted for Aluminum )
G0 G49 G40.1 G17
G80 G50 G90 G98 
G20 (Inch)

Its not worth doing a new version just to correct this, but when I next do an update Ill  fix it.
