Is it possible to turn the screen display 180 degrees?
« on: May 14, 2009, 08:35:18 PM »
          Guys,
              I'm having a problem dealing with the screen display being 180 degrees from the way the mill cuts. It's driving me a little bananas. Can either the screen or the cutting be turned?

That is decided by your axis. Looking at the toolpath window, the x will run left to right and the y will be top to bottom.

If you look at the mill as having a stationary table and all movement as done by the quill does the quill follow the display?
