Totallyrc,
Have a look at Appendix "F" of the manual
Can you post your laptop PC  info as i have made a collection of info on them that have been replied to in this thread.
LazyTurn only.......... :D
The appendix is just a storing place for pc related info at the moment but at least you dont have to look through 120 pages to find related info.
Thanks,  ;)

Hi Rich,
Acer Aspire 5720Z
Intel Pentium Dual T2330 @1.6GHZ. 2Gb of ram. It was a Vista machine but I upgraded to win7 home premium. Fresh install.
I have a 3.0 score on the gaming graphics but it runs Aero just fine.

My cad program, Viacad runs well along with Mach3 and anything else I have tried to install.
It also runs Machscreen without any problems.

If you need more info, just ask.

I will try to install it on a different computer and report back to see if it works there.

I see the Bug Killer is still at it.
Thank you for the hard work on the manual and I just might actually read it as I have a cold and have taken today off.

If it truly is an open gl problem it would be great if there was a test that could be run before installing LT.

I will look to see if there are any updates to the open GL for my laptop.

Mike
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Hi Guys:

  I tested on my Win7 box a few minutes ago.. no errors seen. I too think its an opengl issue. ( they can be a bugger ).

Id suggest a video card driver update if you can find one..

Well I got it to work.
I updated to the latest version of Lazyturn with the finish pass and it now works. There are no updates to my video driver as it is the latest.
I will work with it some more and see how it goes.

It really helps to RTFM.

Art,

The red line looks good on my project.  Turn the output on!

I don't understand what "Final Pass," "Per Pass," and "Tolerance" are for.  They don't seem to be functional.  Only "Clearance" makes any difference in the red line's position.

Regards,
Dave

Art,

I should know better than to ask, but........

My projects are wood.  My cutting tool is symmetrical and cuts in both directions, but LT only cuts in one direction.

Any chance that LT could get an option to cut in both directions in the rough pass? 

It saves a lot of time.  I've modified one of my LT projects by hand to cut bidirectionally. It saved over 30sec and I saw no difference in the finished product.

Thanks again,
Dave

Hi Rich and Art.
Rich, I have sat down with a cup of coffee, a dxf file and played with the program and didn't get too far. So I read the FREAKING manual again.
I also had Lazyturn open at the same time. Much easier to understand. Nice job on the manual and so far I haven't got to the point you have lost me.

Hi Art,
I am with the rest of the crew, turn the finish path on already. If nothing else it will be a great way to do those simple files.
Make everyone read a 100 page paper on how it will probably break their lathe or something. Then turn it on!!!!!!

Well I guess I could say more but since Lazyturn is progressing quite well I guess I should start progressing more on the lathe. LOL
