Hi Dennis:

  A play version of LT is in the FTP site. The downloads page of the website has a link called "More information". Click there..

I found it at "ftp://MachSupport.com/". Select the LazyTurn folder and download the zip file. Good luck. Ben

Hi Guys..

  Just so you can see how collision detection changes a toolpath, here is a sample output of latest development version...

That looks great Art.

For those who do not get what is being shown  here :-

What Art is trying to show is that the tool shape is being taken into account when the profile of the part is roughed out,  the unshaded parts are where the tool can not cut without gouging into the finished part.

If you look at the previous examples the tool could not have produced the shaded lines without the part being over cut in certain areas, this was before the collision detection was working.
