Keith , that is one way to do it. But I need to be able to see it on the DRO when doing a part setup. As it is now if I am in the 350 deg side and need to go to the 5 deg side, to maintain the DRO I have to rotate all the way back around to 5 when I could have easily rotated 15 deg and been there. It all goes back to having the computor work for me instead of me having to do it's job plus mine.  (:~)= Terry

I would not trust G92.. I have had it ignored once too many times at random in code that works most of the time.

Acceleration rates are being calcualted based on a unit/sec^2 scale.. It causes problems when simultaneous angular and linear axis moves are made. Mach needs to calculate acceleration in STEPS/sec^2, like I other control software does. take units out of it...
The way it is now, you woud have to have ~115" diameter object in your A-axis (pi*115 = ~360) for "units" to be the same...

But alas, I will make another thread about this and see if I can get Art to change it.... after asking many time before.. :)

I've been trying to solve the addition of a 4th axis using mach2.  I'm having a problem trying to figure out what mach want's to see as g code.  I'm using mastercam, and need to fix up my post.

I also think it would be handy to have a rotary axis display up to 360.00 degrees then return to 0.00 degrees once you are on the second turn.

That is in Mach3 under state. :)
