Hi Guys:

  Weird the way the mice are telling the system theyve been clicked..  Ill tighten up the code and remove that, in the meantime, he's a stock fix..

Hi

Hitting the N key does the trick, I really am going to have to read all the previous posts to get clued up on all this stuff.

Thanks
Steve

And don't be afraid to experiment, Steve, and post your findings as this is what this is all about -  :D

Well I've had a mess around with a simple part, basicly a ball on the end of a stick.

This is all just in lazyturn, no actual cutting.
I used a button cutter to make one set of code and the roughing was very rough, big steps etc.
I then tried a groove tool (basicly a parting blade) and the roughing was much smoother, same settings as the button cutter, 0.1mm pull out and stock clearance with 0.5mm per pass.
I would have thought it would be the other way round ???

Anyway it's looking good, certainly lazy so far.

Thanks
Steve

Steve:

  It is counter to intuition. A button tool woudl grouge the stock more easily due to the radius of the tool. A triangle or groove woudlnt, it can get
closer to the profile without hurting it. Remember, all we generate at this point is the roughing path. Fine paths will be awhile yet..

Anyway, play with it and post what you find. No promised shcedule, its my "fun" project so its a slow one.

No problem Art, it'll be a while before I have a CNC lathe ready as well, just getting up to speed with it all.
I do have some profiling to do that I was going to use my mill as a lathe for but other considerations mean that I'm going to use a profile tool in my manual lathe.

Art, if I may ask, what PC hardware and OS are you running? Just curious is all-

Hi Dave:

  I have faster computers, but I develop on a asus 2.3Ghz unit, with 1Terabyte of harddrive space and 2 24" monitors. Nothing too special..

Ok, thanks, just curious to know since some of the things ran differently for us.

I realize systems can be alike and yet so different as far as video drivers and the rest so it got my curiousity going.  :)
