Tool Path Up-Down
« on: November 14, 2009, 07:22:21 PM »
In Mach3 Lathe the tool path (profile) is shown as looking down on a regular lathe with the tool bit in a normal position and it makes sense to me from a practical viewpoint and it is easy to visualize.

LazyCAM Turn flips the profile so it is the backside that is displayed.

LazyTurn manual does it both ways.  

Is there any good reason for all the confusion?

Hopefully LazyTurn will standardize to match Mach3 Lathe.
Happy Machining and have a great weekend!
