I am sure its going to take some time to get acquainted with the program format with a little help now and then i am sure i can get there.

Hi Hood/ Rich and everyone helping me out on this Dolphin program,
 so i took one of the examples in this case it was the door knob and did a post open it into Mach for the lathe for a simulation run and what i saw was crop circles in a billet must be doing something incorrect but what new software !

Thanks
Dennis

Probably wrong IJ mode, I altered my post processor to put a G90.1 in the preamble to all code.

This is why its a good idea to try before you buy, OK so i will have to look at the post processor the one Dolphin gave me is supposed to be the latest version out.

Either manually put a G90.1 on the first line in the code or alter the post processor to do it for you.

If you want to put it in the post processor it is in the line that has the following

UNITS ? (G21_) / (G20_)] (G18_) (G64_) (G80_) (G90_) (M48_)

What you want to do is put this at the end  "G90.1"(_)

So the line would be
[UNITS ? (G21_) / (G20_)] (G18_) (G64_) (G80_) (G90_) (M48_)"G90.1"(_)

Dennis,
Note that there are two pp one for radius and one for diameter. So be consitant in how you draw, what pp you use , and finaly how you have Mach configured.

Dolphin only gave one post processor I'll give them an email and see whats up why is it always a hassle to set up new software but at least with a forum like this one and guys like all of you willing to help out it makes things easier to follow.

Thanks
