Very good Chip.
  So I need to modify the dwg to a much smaller OD, then expand it in LT.
But I suppose it will be like the earlier versions eventually.
And...like Rich said, what did you generate the tap file with ?
Thanks Chip,
RC

Hi, RC, Rich

Generated the tap file with  LazyTurn, Yes, Kept the major profile and reduced the overall OD.

Thanks Chip.
  I didnt realize LT was ready to post the tap file......working pretty good, only slight mods needed. (in simulation of course)

Hi All,
In case you want to look at the profile differently.
DOUBLE CLICK RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON TO BRING BACK TO REGULAR VIEW
ART gets another atta-boy. :)

Hi Rich,
Holding the mouse wheel did that since the beginning. Also, if you hold the wheel down, then move the cursor off of the blue field, then release the wheel, when the cursor is directed back over the blue field the image will still rotate and spin until the wheel is clicked again while the cursor is in the blue field.
Cool,
RC

Hi guys:

  I have the Vista issue fixed so it will post in Vista, and have added some error sensing code as well. But Im working on the small number issue, metric seems good, but inch mode is bugged. ( damn standard measures..), Ill release when I find all the error points..

Hi Guys:

  Here's a much less annoying version.

1) Cancel a toolpath gen by clicking the left mouse button.
2) Small dimension tools shoudl be OK now. If you zoom in to a very small
tool in a window you WILL see arcs cut off into small lines, but this is display only,
the actual radial arcs are taken into full account in the pathing.
3) Errors are generated for internal errors like self-interseting contours generated.
4) Posting in Vista.. this can be done BUT take note that UAC in Vista may require you to put
the file into a legal spot like the folder LazyTurn is currently in. ( Vista pisses me off!! :)   )

  This is all very complex in terms of some of the things it does, so Im trying to catch as much as I can in errors,
soem of the small number ( standard measure) items wern;t as bad as I originally thought, some as a simple typo
in the tip generation code. ( any arc less than the size of a pixel was ignored, it caused OpenGL errors.

 More bugs exist Im sure, but this version should work better for you than previous ones.

Thx
Art

Same here Chip.
Strange...cannot close the box and cannot close LT.

Also.....it's hung up tying knots of some sort.

Another thing.....If I click on YES, it quits the op. Click on NO and it hangs up. But if I hit the N key instead, it generates the tool path as before.
Strange.
