I had high hopes, though there seemed to be no difference in the post Javascript, but no - same issue. Thought I would post some details here of the machine definition, in case that has something to do with it.  :(

And the error:

Try deleting the machine config from the cam setup

I have had some funny errors using it for 3 axis work , it took a lot of thinking, changing Setting to get it to play nicely

It’s not really needed ,but nice to have when it works save any bo bo,s

Good idea, I'll try that.

No luck, unfortunately, though the error is different, I've seen it before while testing this 4th axis. It gets beyond the onOpen section, but baulks at a later point:

Ok

I have just knocked up a test part

Like a pipe with a flange at each end and a flat lump on the side eg steam cylinder for a beam engine

Axis left end of bed along the x axis
Using that cps I posted it generated code correctly no errors

Z was modelled up from the centre of rotation with x poking out the centre in the normal direction for that axis

The WCS warning was it is looking for a 1 for g54 in the cam setup

So I am afraid you have me stumped, but I will keep my brain cell working ,it’s 73 years old now so a bit slow

Stay safe and well

double check my setup, mmm   rotary axis setup X
                                               origin setup wcs  but it shows the opposite  :)   

maybe share your setup

Hi, tried setting to mill and turn, but same error. Attached is the setup; maybe something is not right here...

ok, this ain't going to work.  :)   you have to turn the piece 90°  aligned to X 
look some ytube video how to setup

don't select a machine & operating typ: milling   just to get going

I'll check that one out, but turning it made no difference...
