Question on OD Arc 3 In turn wizards
« on: October 02, 2007, 06:56:17 AM »
How does the wizard work without knowing the profile or dimensions of the cutting tool?
Thanks
Derek

Never tried the wizard yet as my Lathe is just in the final stages of the retrofit but I presume you are meant to use a tool with similar shape as is in the wizard.

None of the wizard profiles have reentrant cycles in them so it really doesen't matter at all. The main thing is the tool tip radius, which it will use.
