Turn, OD Taper wizard question
« on: June 11, 2018, 09:34:09 PM »
Hello,
Is there a way to get the OD Taper wizard to cut a taper where the larger diameter is on the end of the part? (The tailstock end) I can only seem to make tapers with the small end on the tailstock side of the part.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,
The Turning wizard has a number of wizards which you can use.
Use the OD Taper 2 wizard for what you want to do. If I recall correctly, angle input value is  the "total angle"
not just one side.

May want to consider / learn  LazyTurn  which is free and there is a manual for it. Basic, easy to use program
to provide gcode for outside contouring.
