That's what I'm thinking! I'm totally amazed at the the amount of support that one is able to receive from this site. It makes a huge difference, thanks to everyone!

Heck you did all the work I just nudged you back on the road a time or two.

Some time has gone by now and I'm still calling subs to get the results I need. Things work well that way but I stumbled into something yesterday. The attached code runs on my laptop using R3.043.022. The computer running my mill is version R3.042.040 and will not run the code. Maybe the cutter comp with work offsets has been repaired....not sure. Can someone else give it a try and confirm this for me before I go running updates on the mill computer. Thanks, Riley.

3.43.022 was released more than 6 months before you started this thread. If anything was fixed, it would have been more than a year ago.

I guess I have had the software installed much longer than I thought! I will have to get around to bringing that machine up to date....my oversight. I just can't figure out why one computer runs the sample code and one won't. The computer that will run it is a windows 7 system. I am just curious if anybody else has the same results.

I tried the code and it seemed to run fine with a late version of Mach, never studied what it was actually doing but it did run through and complete.

Thanks for the feedback!...I will try an update on the machine in question in a few days. Have some parts to run and I don't dare fool with it yet! I'm just glad to know an update my fix it.

The toolpath view showed 2 I think, never actually watched it, just let it run through.

Just loaded it here at home and one circle here. I have the Dev version loaded here but an older one at the workshop.
