Lathe offsets
« on: June 11, 2007, 08:38:51 PM »
Hi,
Is it possible to have the offsets work as a diameter instead of a radius?
I can't find anything except lathe as a whole as rad or dia, and this setting doesn't affect the offset register

Thanks
Mark

Not much of the lathe stuff ever seems to get worked on, that would be one of them. The lathe version of Mach3 switches between diameter and radius for quite a bit of stuff, you really have to watch it sometimes and try to learn it well.
