G71 / G72 Canned cycles for Lathe?
« on: February 11, 2021, 11:18:33 AM »
Any chance that G71 / G72 canned cycles might make it to Mach 4 anytime soon?

We have talked about it but Lathe is such a small amount of the users that it is a ton of work for only a few users. :( . I did make the code that will do the roughing passes in Lua :) If we can get enough people to pipe up here I would entertain the idea.

if I can say my opinion about it, I see exactly the opposite.
having more options, it becomes richer software, consequently the interest in it would greatly increase.
it is currently little more than the Mach3 version.
consequently the user is unwilling to migrate to Mach4.

if you think about it, in this industry it is giving and then receiving.
