We are only in trial anyway, what does your version do that the may 25 version does not do? This does not produce code yet or does it? i have tried but i think i need to read more in the manual.

Bigbigjimbo,
It just optimises the rough passes .
 LT will post code to a file but not directly into Mach3 turn. For a single finish pass  you can use LazyCam . There is a manual in Member's  Doc's for LC. See Tutorial #5 for a how to ( it uses the same file as used for the LT Manual ). Note that you need to look at the whole manual as each tutorial builds on each other.

Hi,

I am using LazyTurn to generate the roughing profiles for my turning, and LazyCam to generate the finish pass.  LT works fine on XP, but I need to use it on Vista and I have the following problem:

When I try to generate g-code in LT, using a new file name, LT says it can't find the file, and gives me an notepad file, which is empty.  I have LT 1.1.  If i start with a existing .tap file, I get the old file, unchanged. 

I took LT to another Vista machine, same result.  Tried on an XP machine, and everything works fine. 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks, Barry

I assume you have LC pro as that will post code, as far as Vista ( i use XP ) don't know what to tell you since i have never used it.

Hi:

  It has to do with Vista not allowing you to modify a file in certain folders. Try right clicking and selecting "Run as Admin", OR failing that, save the file to your desktop..

Hi Rich:

  My plan is for first snows... :)

 Im working on a summer project approaching working status ( A next-generation planner) , so once I finish this I'll be back at LT, or on first snow II'll switch back. I needed the break to get fresh again.

ART or Brian,
I am curiuos, will you or Brian ever / someday do any changes to LazyCam.
There is manual for it in the Members Docs and at the end of it there is a bug list.
Of that list, there are only a few important ones that require fixing.
