Is it possible to get LazyTurn now? I just completed my lathe and this would sure be great to have.

Thanks much,
Kerry

Hi, Kerry

Make a copy of the LazyCam 3.00.2.exe you currently using/have in C:\Mach3 folder, The "update" has a older version in it, Don't now why.

You can copy it back in and Re Name it after you install the Up Date.

Download the latest ver LazyTurn, On page 102, post 1017, Un-Zip it and install the LazyTurn.exe file into C:\Mach3, You need to install the updated, LazyCam 3.00.2 Update also from Download's above.

You may need the, ".net 2.0 update" from Microsoft to prevent an error at start up also. Hears a link to it.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Yes it does help Chip, thank you. I have it installed, but now I am wondering if there is documentation available on how to use LazyTurn?

Thanks again,
Kerry

Hi Kerry,
Suggest you print out and read what is posted in the Members Doc.
Then download both the files which i posted in Reply #946.
They represent "partial" update to the LAZYTURN manual section as of 3/28/09.
I say partial, as it's the start of a total re-write reflecting a lot of changes since rev 2
was posted. The manual, inclusive of the Appendix's , basicaly covers all the
comments made in this thread ( a couple hundred pages ).

The manual is very dynamic as it needs to change as Lazyturn develops, but for the most part,
it will bring you up to speed.

If you want to try out LazyTurn, try out the DXF posted in reply #946 as it's the one which i am using
in the manual.  Of course you can go to Appendix "D" and view same 50 files posted in this thread and
fool with those, or make your owne profile.

Have fun,
RICH

noob here.
I'm trying to install lazyturn and lazy cam. 
have successfully downloaded and installed mach3 (so cool)
have downloaded and successfully installed dotnetfx from microsoft. 
have downloaded lazyturn.zip and uncompressed to new folder. 
Cant download lazycam 3.0.2 update because link seems to be broken - o/s asking if the file has been moved or renamed. 
the lazycaminstall.exe that is in my mach3 folder will not start giving the error message of 'windows cannot access the specified device, path or file' and suggests that I may not have the right permissions (wierd}
Cant install the double clicking on lazyturn icon gives error message of missing dll, which I guessed is in lazycam, which I can't seem to get installed. 
I'm stuck.  Can anyone point me in the right direction? 
toshiba laptop, windows xpsp2 (I think) runs fine.

Hi Sheghan,
No problem with the link here.
Once you have installed LazyCam, the file from  LazyTurn.zip needs to be copied over to the folder you installed LazyCam in.
You should be good to go.

PS: My preference is to install another version of Lazycam to a different directory IE; call that directory
Lazyturn Testing. Lazyturn can be run standalone. Not to confuse, just my preference for now, as we are
still testing.
