Steve. Ezilathe is checked out with up to R2018 Ascii dxf's. It could be that unsupported entities were present (but not available in R14).

Any new updates I should be using, as it has been a while.

Hello Veloman11
Sorry, it's been a while, There are some changes / Additions, some are still a work in Progress, but should soon become available.

FYI - Additions to DXF Export from Gcode, to work for lathe and Mill Gcode as required.
Additions to Threading to allow for other G76 Implementations, such as LinuxCNC.
+ a Bit of work to "CAD4LATHE" and the usual Bug fixes.
I seem to have run out of Bugs at the moment, the best time to Find them is the day after I upload an update.

Hello,
i want to use Ezilathe. I create a dxf-file with Librecad and load the file in Ezilathe. I get this result. In line 173

Thanks
Hans

Your DXF Works just fine (See Attached JPG).
You have set O.D.Turning, Cut Left to Right (Cut from the chuck Out towards the Tailstock)???
The order that you select the entities in is Important. Selecting in the reverse order to the direction specified gives a result similar to what your .TXT shows in the simulator. Selecting in the same direction as specified, gave the result shown.

Hello Machtank,
many thanks for your response. I played around with the settings a bit and now I have one that works
G-code created. I turn a test part. The part was fine.
Thanks for your great software.
