The G76 is nothing like what is needed for Mach, not sure whats what in it but shouldnt be an F and shouldnt be a U. As said the spring pass (Q) is 60 so not sure what they are putting in there if its only meant to be one. Did you tell the CAM it was an infeed of 60 degrees? maybe thats what it is, BTW 29.5 would be a normal infeed value to use.

I believe that Q. is the in feed angle of 60 ,i have foud some more posts but i am not sure idf they will work with V. 24 iall i can do is try them in mach and see what a happens. Kind of a bad way to do thing's .I am still looking for a user with a good post ,he or she is out there just have to stumble across them.

Hood if i post the xml. file for lathe could you take a look at the settings and see if i ahve thing's set correctly ,i had Burr man look at the posts, he tried three of them and mach came back with several errors in tool tip radius and tool length offset. I am new to this lathe deal ,so i have a few questions .
 (1) do i need to set the tool table i in mach to mach the table in the cad software?
 (2) is there some kind of gouge tech. in mach that needs setting or turning off?

Yes post you xml and also the Tool3.dat which you will find in the macro folder for the profile you are using.

You dont need to set p the tooltable in Mach to get running but once you have things set up then you would normally have the offsets for different tools set, assuming that is you have a turret or some means of repeating when swapping tools.

What message are you getting? may just be you need to rename the zip to something unique.
