Gen Notes:

USing V.076 I cannot access the different layers by clicking on them from the screen they highlight but do not change. I can change the layers from the properties bar ok

Multipass, do we really need to return to and from safe z on each pass?

Leadin? What is the proper size for a lead in? Is it a ratio of the tool diameter? Can we have the default based on a ratio of the tool diam?

Tool table, can we have a reference popup window that accesses Mach's tool table for a reference(this is LAZYCAM correct I get too lazy to go find the tool table catalog for mach(;-) )

Drill holes, If in the tool settings it calls for a step that is less than the max depth can we have a peck drill instead of a straight drill. 
           COuld we have an option to create another layer of the drill layer to use for a tapping layer, with the input to set up mach for
           tapping Gcode wise(G95,Feed per rev,Etc., or a spot drill layer , etc.

Good so far (;-) TP
         


Gcode utility, could we have a simple utility to reoder the line numbers that get mixed up from cutting a pasting and editing the Gcode file.

Hi Wes

Give these a try loaded into TurboCad 8, Grouped All.

Last Dxf as Drawn by you. Fine after loading in TC and Saving.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi Guys, I used an example DXF for Lazycam Turn and came up with the attached toolpath in Mach 3. It doesn't seem to cut the spirals but Mach 3 Turn always displays them. Mach 3 version R2.3, Radius Mode, Reversed Arcs in Front Post unchecked,Lazycam 2.02 downloaded July 26, 2007. Diameter mode would be much appreciated. Thanks, Glen.
I had a few parts left over - still it's always the same when you try a bit of "do it yourself"

Hi group, is there any chance of diameter mode becoming available in LazyCam for lathe ?
Thanks, Glen.
