What am I doing wrong?
« on: November 16, 2006, 07:29:59 AM »
I have set up a tool with diameter 1.6mm.  When I select this tool in lazycam, I expect it to compensate for the diameter of the tool.   So if I am cutting a rectangle inside, I expect the tool path to be half the diameter of my tool (.8mm) away from the edges.  Instead, Lazycam G-Code that moves exactly on the edges of the rectangle.  What am I missing or doing wrong here?

Hi, jporter

LazyCam is undergoing a re-make, there are some issue's with offset's, Probally better to make a offset layer in your cad to account's for your tool offset's for now, I think.

Are you checking the G41, G42's post options, you need to use Lead-In's ON for them to work/post.

The G41, G42 are Backward's in the Post's for me anyway, view to cut, cut to view, you'll see what I mean.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Maybe use MACH3 "BRAINS" for that.
