Chip,
Modified my reply #244 to add the dxf file.
I haven't paid too much attention to the portrayal of  roughing graphics to date.
Figured the file needs to import and generate a roughing cut reasonably close / in the ballpark
and leave interpretation of graphic quality up to Art for now. Don't know what to expect on the graphics at this
point. At some time it should portray only on one side, ......hey here's a cloud above my head.....
if something appears above the displayed porfile could it be used as a clue of whats wrong on the drawn profile......
If gode was generated, will back plot the gcode and compare agaisnt the original profile for just for kicks on a few.

Time for work,
RICH

Question:
  Where is the stock size initially described and why this error when attempting to change the stock size at the X scale ?
Also, in setting up a grooving tool, the IC appears to be the width of the tool and Radius can be zero. The length of the tool projection seems to be equal to the Holder length. More on that later.

Thanks,
RC

Art,
A few comments and errors created when using 8.dxf from post #247.
They are noted  1,2,3,4 in red in the jpg attached.

Hi, Rich

I found that BobCad v22 DXF's are saving as ACAD R14 "AC1014" format, LazyCam/LazyTurn seems to be happiest with AC1006 (R10) & AC1009 (R11/R12) DXF's, Thanks for posting the File.

RC: Post your dxf and check the AC # as listed above.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, RC

I was able to reproduce the issue hear.

If you look into it further, There seem to be an Issue with the Stock Dia, Profile Dia and Posted G-code Diameter, Values.

Final Part should be 2.00 (R 1.00 x 2=2.00), G-code shows ( R 1.3225) or 2.645 Dia., Same as Stock Dir. Shown, I Think.

Pretty, Wild, Nice & Wonderful Program

Thanks, Chip

Hi Chip,
Wild, Nice and Wonderful...I agree.

Did you try to change the values at the slider scale ?
I get the error every time on all dxf's.

Thanks Chip,
RC

Hi, RC

Yes, Start z position works + & -, Stock, Profile "Dia.s" only seem to work if you increase the values, Errors if you try to set them below there Initial values.

Chip

Edit: Hears a dxf & tap file, You can adjust to a dia. closer to what you want.
