Turn Cycles - Taper
« on: March 13, 2019, 04:04:23 PM »
Trying to turn a morse 2 taper using the turn Cycles Taper Cycle.  I thought I could just enter .375 for Xi, .5 for Xf and  1.4307 for the angle and it would determine the z Distance.  I an't find any combination of buttons, purple square looks right but I get the "IDOD dimensions for X don't match" message.

Anyone know how this is supposed to be done using taper cycles?

Can't find any documentation.

Your Xi should be larger than Xf,
 See attached pic

No guarantees :)

This is what I used for trial.

Seriously!!?? I looked at that graphic over and over and over and yet missed the Xi and Xf placement.  Sorry for being so dense.  thanks
