Hi Rich,

Here are a couple DXFs from ACAD2002 saved as R12.  The cigarTop should have end diameters of 0.480 & 0.580.  The cigarBottom should have end diameters of 0.530 & 0.462.  I ran LT using the diamond35 bit and 0.002 depth cuts.  What I got as far as GCode was 0.531 & 0.626 for the top; 0.582 & 0.512 for the bottom.  Where's that extra 0.050 coming from?

These may still be more complex than ideal.  Used a spline to get the shape.

Thank you,   Joe

Joe,
Can you post a pic of your cut button which will show me your stock clearance.
LT dosen't provide a finish pass yet. So you will not get a profile cut.You can get one out
of Lazycam Turn.
I'll try out your files later today.

Hi, Joe

The reason your dia. is large is the final rough cut is the value of your cut per pass of .002 + the taper of your profile.

The pic below shows at arrow the final "rough (.005)" passes and I added the final pass on this pic for you to see, Bottom .Tap file is the file.

Hear are the final passes for both of your parts, You can just run them after your rough or cut and past them to your rough  G-code, You'll need to remark ";" out some of the rough code though.

Hi, Ed

I looked at your dxf, It's just drawn in the wrong place in your Cad program.

Pic 1 your dxf.
Pic 2 moved to the proper location the square border need's to be removed also.
Pic 3 LazyTurn pic.
File 1 New dxf.

OK, you confirmed my hunch.  I'll have to see if I can figure out how to use X,Y coordinates in my CAD program.  This may be a big problem since there is no user manual available for Solid Edge 2D software.  I'll try searching in the help file to see if I can find anything there.

Can you tell me how you moved the drawing to the correct location, step by step instructions would really help me.  My short term memory problem makes it very difficult for me to learn without having written directions.  Thanks a lot, again Chip!

After our conversation the other day concerning the location of drawing in the upper left quadrant of the drawing field, I moved all of my drawing to that area but, Solid Edge 2D doesn't have the coordinate 0:0 set anywhere near that location it is actually at the bottom left corner of the drawing field.  Once I moved the drawing to that location it all works fine.  All of the chess set pieces load , create toolpaths and generate g-code with no problem.  I was able to load each of the g-code files into Mach3Turn and run the code simulating the cutting process with no errors.  Now just have to wait until a version of LazyTurn is provide that will do finish cuts.  You didn't know it but you pointed me in the right direction and made me think about the problem from a different perspective which lead me to the answer.  Thanks again.

Hi Ed,
Until the finish comes around, this may help.

Hello,

I am a german user of LazyCam / Mach3.
I looked over this thread and found at some pages downloads of LazyTurn, because we are very interested in using LazyTurn.
In the Download area of this page I can't find a section with the last "development-versions" of Lazturn.
So I have two questions:

1.) Where can I find the newest Version?
2.) When do you think  (I know ... I read the first statement to Lazyturn ;-) ) LazyTurn will be available.

best regards,
jo
