G19 and G68 at same time
« on: April 10, 2007, 11:28:55 PM »
Hello, i've got a circle and need to carve out some notches, but I'd like to feather the edges with vertical arcs in the YZ azis (selecting G19).  To make the Gcode easy, i've created one set of commands and just copy them using a different coordinate rotation (G68) for each cut.

Unfortunately, it seems that Axis rotation can only occur when in the G17 (XY plane) mode.  Does anyone know of a workaround that might do the same thing?  Will concurrent G19 and G68 be available in a future release?

Have you got a rotary axis, if so put it on its back and use that to do the rotation.
