4th Axis Addition!!!

FYI

The post processor for Alibre has scaling factor that converts from radians to degrees. The conversion is correct from what I read. Just not sure why the g code goes more than 360. Could someone help my simple mind understand this?

(;-) Because it is easier and faster to wind up the axis with continuos moves rather than unwind the axis after each pass. 

Just a thought, (;-) TP
