.......You can be thankfull to ART for providing a program which is like no other for the hobbiest. Just need to get the challenges of the finish pass
resolved.

I believe Art already knows how thankful I am.   Back when he was developing Mach2 and I participated with all the "testers" I was blown away moreso by his philosophy and approach to life in general.   Yes! I am thankful to Art.
  If I can ever get all the items on the "home improvement" front reduced to low priority, and still see a happy face on my wife, I will again get involved and provide some form of positive contributions.

Art
I have been watching the forum and seen a mention of inside and outside turning can LT do inside and outside turning?

Thanks
Dennis

Dennis,
LT can only do outside profile turning. I believe you miss-interpreted something said about how LT determines that it is an outside profile.

Hi,
new here so I hope this is the correct place to ask my question. I am using an old version of Autosketch to produce drawings and although I can import a simple profile into Lazyturn the dimesions are incorrect ... a one inch bar is around nine inches. Can I use Autosketch? I note it is not mentioned in the appendices, or do I need another CAD program

Phil,
I have never used Autosketch. It is vector based and exports to a dxf so assume it should work.
I don't know why dimensions are incorrect. LT provides for setting diameter, radius, or metric on import.
Make sure that your drawing units are set correctly in Autosketch. I am quessing that it's either
the way you are drawing it or some export setting in Autosketch but realy don't have a specific answer for you.
Post the DWG  and DXF file. I believe there are other folks in here that use it and may chime in.

Hi Phil,

I don't use that program either but a few things to also check:

-Make sure you're exporting 1:1 scale
-Make sure you have the drawing at 0,0 origin

I tried using Solidworks for drawing turn work but never got the dxf just right, so my cylindrical piece ended up looking like an oval piece because I didn't have the origin at 0,0.

Hope that helps-
Dave

Thanks Rich and Dave for the rapid responses which pointed me in the right direction. I had the scaling wrong! Obvious really, but Iwas going round in circles anyway now I am on the first rung of the ladder.

Thanks again ........ Phil
