Well I now have the coolant looking at the tool number and switching on the appropriate solenoid, so one less thing for me to have to remember to do in CAM :) Next I think I will see if I can get it to choose CW or CWW spindle depending on tool number.

Just wanted to mention that the USA based Dolphin company is indeed also honoring this deal if anyone is interested.

Well did the first real job from start to finish with code from Dolphin and I must say I am extremely pleased. Now that the post processor has been set up to suit my lathe it spat out the code and never had to make a single edit.
Heres a pic of what I did today :)

Nice, what are they? Look a bit like tap handles.

I'm going to end up passing on this software for now.

Happy New Year, my friend- :)

They are for some sort of underwater testing gizmo. A transducer and some other electronic gubbins go inside and then  one of these mini subs grabs it by the handles and pushes it against the legs of an oil rig and it can tell whether its flooded or not. The body is 50mm dia and the handles are 16mm dia, so for you old fashioned guys thats 2 inch and 5/8 inch diameters approx ;D
