Rich, I thought Dennis said he was buying V10 as it was on special  but may be mistaken.

Guys a question regarding the use of Dolphin when designing a part should the part be in a certain quadrant like upper left hand quadrant or right hand quadrant the start of the part be up against the 00 cross heirs and so on ?like when i design for a mill part it is in the upper right hand quadrant this maybe part of my problem as well thanks in advance.

Are you drawing the part in DolphinCAD or are you drawing in some other CAD and importing the DXF?
It shouldnt really matter where you draw as long as you pick the correct point as the origin when in DolphinCAD.
For lathe work it is normal to have the front centre of the part as the X/Z zero, That would mean all X values would be positive and all Z values negative.
I draw my parts of the upper half of the section as I have a rear turret but I would imagine you should be able to draw the lower section if you wanted, reason being when you open in CAM you get both halves of the section displayed.

Dennis,
I made a video on the three balls  from importing the dxf to machining the profile.
Send me a PM with your email address and i'll send it to you. The next one will have audio.

Maybe when I add the audio to it. Heck I may as well include using the pp and show the mach end of it also.
BTW, I did make one with audio, but the boss was giving me some guff, made me screw it up some, and my recorded
comments were past the adult supervision warning.  >:D  ;D

The licenses work on both machines, so if one generates a request make sure that your  security is turned off.
