Thanks Chip, as I added v3.041 back to the arsenal for viewing purposes.

sanalee,
 I don't think there is anything wrong on your side of the fence other than graphics display
between versions. I will only comment saying that it can be frustrating enough to go through your
 learning experience without this kind of issue to make it more complex.  Stay with us my friend as we
need the help.

 I just reloaded version 3.041 to a separate directory and opened a lot of turn files with no apparent issue.

Hi, Hood

That should fix it for him, That's the second time I've forgotten about the I,J's setting in general configuration menu.

The Little crop cir's with (Turn Options) Reverse Arc's in Front Post and the Big crop cir's in General Configuration menu.

Thanks, Chip

Hi Art,
Just some general comments but specific are noted in red on the attached JPEC image.
- Depth per pass is not saved but did save in one of the versions
- Can the file name be saved in the posted gcode so that you don't have to edit to add (  )?

Other comments noted on the jpeg.

ART,
It is doing the same thing on the base which is similar to the upper profile of the candlestick.
Hey, 4 bad lines / 1300 lines x 100= .077% error..... getting close to 0%
Could manualy edit these lines but would be a PITA.
see attachments and code

Hi Guys:

  Heres a new version that trys to fix some of those errors. (thx for the files, they helped allot.)

 There is also a diags mode in the rough dialog, you cant post if you use it, but the resultant image is helpfull to me to find where some types of
errors come from. Its also a very fast way to see a line reduction of the image. No gouging tests are done, and tool geometry is not considered
in this case, also no real toolpath is calc'ed, it just shows the "before pathing" data from the path engine. Generation of the scan lines is done in an
iterative algorithm, so the "diags" output can show me if that is working OK, it was failing in the test files provided.

(Stock rotation is temporarily disabled as well in this version.

Thanks,
Art

All ready for York ?

Rich:

 No, I meant stock. While the job profile is still spun, the stock is no longer shown, ( its the profile above the piece..
