3rd axis on a lathe?
« on: October 06, 2012, 09:43:35 AM »
I'm accumulating the nec. bits & pieces to add a small powered aux. spindle on my ORAC.  It'll be a while before it's done but was curious how to get the extra DRO window added to my screen.  Are there any screens already out there with an extra axis?  Will the tool path show up in the preview screen?

I figure if I start now, maybe I'll have a clue how to do it when I actually need it 2 or 3 mos. down the road.  I'm slow. ;D

Easy enough to add a DRO to a screenset with any of the screen designers available.Never tried but dont think it will show in the toolpath but dont think you would want it to anyway?
