Hi Stirling, thanks for your reply. Yes your right on the money!
The first video you posted is exactly what I got just using X,Y for a square, with a rectangle I got a parallel line inside the "D"
I have the Z A rotations enabled and the tool path rotates on the screen.
I will try to attach toolpath pic yet again.

Thanks
Ricky

Toolpath shown about half way round the first corner.

Code: [Select]

G01 X-32.5 Y-30 F1000

Thanks for your help Ian. I will give your code a try when I get my table up and running.
Trying to find time to build so I can see the results

cheers
