Brian will be looking at this in the coming week. On my machine, it seems to be off by a factor of 360.

That is, instead of moving to 90 degrees, it moves to 0.25 degrees. Instead of moving to 270 degrees, it moves to 0.75 degrees.

I'll let you know if I hear new information.

Have you heard from Brian regarding the solution.

I am looking for some cam software that may do the conversion for the tangential A axis

Not yet.

You shouldn't need CAM conversion anything.  When this works properly, the control will maintain a position parallel to or perpendicular to you cut path (depending on where you set your home switch).
