 How do you get lazycam to cut a profile in more than one pass?
 Thanks

If you make sure that there is a line at the RHS of the stock extending to the outer diameter of the stock, Lcam will use several cuts, depending on the roughing & finishing settings to produce the profile. I'm not an expert - but that's what I've found. There's not much information about using turn yet, also it doesn't always do what you want. Bear in mind it's still work in progress.

To clarify the last post, the line needs to extend from the centre of the stock to the OD. A separation of 0.5mm will do. You also need to join the lines at the centre, so its one continuous line on the same layer.
I've attached a simple example.
