jhowelb,
Put lazyturn.exe in the folder with mach or wherever you installed lazycam.

Figured it out, the update is not an installer but is the new file to be placed in the Mach folder.

RICH,
I like your suggestion about the Button tool with NO restraints on the tool holder.
I have applications where that would be extremely handy.
Especially when finish pass and face cutting come into being.
Thanks,
RC

EDIT: And re-reading your earlier angle question, I see that my response was not what you needed.
But...it may be of help to others for reference to the orientation of the other inserts.
Thanks

Rich:

  True enough, I can see where you could designa holder to cut that one for example..but it isnbt right, I see the lobes are cutting off..

Im still working on the why's of that one. Ive found some further errors, but they are complex to repair so it'll be a few days while I take that into account.

hi, everything works fine on my computer (vista) except generating G-Code. when i import the Aouterprofile.dxf file, select tool and generate toolpath all is OK. when I generate G-Code lazyturn asks for the prolog and filename. after that notepad opens but without G-Code?

thanks

Ok, had a little time to play today and did a few tests with some profiles but I'm not sure how much help I'll be.

I used this profile from Rich the first time with success :



I had these results in the pics below. Pay no attention to the missing cut lines as I paused through it part way and it really did seem to "cut" everything well. I'm also including my Diamond tool profile so that you can see exactly what I used.

Hi Art, if it helps, I'm using an Nvidia Geforce 6800 video card.
