RC,
version: LAZYTURNDEC9
I think it's bug or it's telling you something.
 If you use diagnostic ouput the first time you loose the color in the X pointers.
Go out and back in- then does the same, but as soon as i click ok for a selected tool pointer color lost.
Seems to stick that way.

- replacing with older version - no change
- reload v....Dec9 and reboot - no change

Hi All,
Don't know if you tried this out yet but by providing a different value's in the z axis pointer,
in this case it was negative (-.159"), the roughs are generated at a different starting point as shown in the attached. Haven't checked the gcode, since as you can see that it still needs some work. I deleted some code in Mach Turn for the pic.

I assume that enventualy you will be able to pick based displayed pointer value or actually use dim's you know are correct.

That's easy and nice Art.   :)

Art,
Curious,
So will you be limited to picking just a single starting point or will it mature into a some range of the profile?
Maybe i am dumb, but can the other slider value be used to accomplish the above?

A "go to" option  / gcode move to the next selected section point would be nice.This move could be automaticlay put into the gcode ( and maybe thus labeled "(move to next point )" . Take this one step futher and maybe insertion of an entry move.

Maybe you can use the pointer values again to generate the  "go to" mentioned above.

Yes, very lazy here.  ;)

Thanks for the verification on the colors RICH :)

Chip,
 I opened your dxf in AutoSketch and found all kinds of overlaps and gaps. Cleaned them up and it goes through to LT OK now..here anyway.
See pics.

Oh....and here is the DXF I ended up with for Chip's part.

Hi Chip,
The circles are at the overlaps and the square is at a gap.
Have to zoom WAY in to see them.
Regards,
RC

Hi Chip,
I took Grahams original King, scaled it down .001:1 and got the same 2 errors as you did originally.
Then I scaled down .01:1 and there was only 1 bad spot (circled), corrected it and all went well.

Hi, Russ

Thanks Russ for the Picture, Well I did find a cad that show's them, Show's them as 0.0002" long, Intersection of Arc/Line,.

This file was from a cad/cam generated Offset and shows clean lines/arc's in 2 cad programs hear, Zoomed all the way in.

Edit: It's a tolerance issue, Cad, Cam and Accuracy, Balancing Act.

Thanks, Chip

My thought on sectioning is that after a profile is generated ( the math here relies on generating the entire profile..) Id like to simply drag a slider that selcts a section, but that will be a posting section item, you select a section ( or the whole profile ) and then when it posts the code, it does so only for that section. It would then allow for a job to be cut in sections in any order you wish, graphiclly , without much hardhsip on the user... ( just a thought..)

Hi, Art

Need to think on that idea for awhile.

Hears a cleaner file with 0.0001 overlap in yellow causing 1/2 the profile not to load and a file with ii fixed, Seems to be very small overlap's.

Edit: Tap & Pic's

Thanks, Chip
