ART,
In Dec8, "Depth per Pass" is persistant but it moves the decimal point 2 places to the right.
Enter .025 and it reopens as 2.5  consistant with any entry.
Thanks,
RC

Also, could you please explain what this LEAK represents ?
It is present after closing LT but only when a path has been generated.
It seems to increment up 1 for each path generated while a given profile is open.
Thanks,
RC

Hi:

 Sorry about that, I had tested it, but I may have been in just radius or diamter mode..

The Leak isnt actual, its a warning that the object wasnt deleted by LTurn as it closed, I need to search for it, very small
objects so its not a big deal really.
Seems intermittant.. But Ill search for it..

Thanks ART.
Further investigation reveals that if the DEPTH is set at only 1 decimal place, .2 for instance, it sticks. But if you enter .025 or .02  it jumps to 2.5 or 2 respectively.

Art,
Maybe a clue for you.
 The Rough Pullout screen, when first opened in previous versions, showed the tool depth setting for the tool you selected, and noticed that the depth setting is off by "THREE" decimal places. Just did this for the botton tool and havn't checked the other tools.

In fact it seems to vary.
created        rough depth
tool depth
.002             2
.032             3.2

Art,
For most tests i have been using the button or diamond.

I get TO DO's with the square tool.
Should we avoid any tool's? Can post the file with info?

Hi Guys,
No TODO error but this path looks bad at the flange of this spindle with the selected square tool.

Hi, Art

LazyTurn is getting better all the Time For Sure, For what it worth.

If you set Read Only to the LT.xml with a value of 0.1 for RoughPass.

When you start LT the value changes to .2 then it's a divide / multiply issue that persists.
If  Depth Per Pass is 0.10 PerPass =.0500 turns into 10 Depth Per Pass next time Rough Profile is opened again.
If  Depth Per Pass is 0.15 PerPass =.00750 turns into 15 Depth Per Pass next time Rough Profile is opened again.
and so-on. Pic's

Thanks, Chip
