Hi, Art

Went back to an earlier version where -Y was allowed, Hears a Inside profile that looks pretty good.

It really needs to post in X+ to be cut by std. boring bar and std. chuck rotation for most users.

Any chance of allowing zero <= -.0001 quadrant again for testing ?

Thanks, Chip

Chip:

  Ill see what I can do, there are other things that I need to modify other than just the X- , but the code does work in reverse, it was planned that way to allow for just what you see,
and it helps in facing as well..

 Anyway, Ill see if I can allow it soon, I have a few other things to touch up first as well..

Thx,
Art

Hi Art,
thanks for the save fix  :)

A few comments
1. input boxes above triangles only highlight to 2 decimal palces / make them longer?
2.can the pointer be changed to a crosshair when in the profile?
3. should their be ruler divisions when an offset is done
4.Under FILE, provide for closing of the file
5.Is the loss of triangle color deliberate after a tool is selected or should it persist
6.Will there be a an OOPS / ability to go a step latere on?

Chip,
It dosn't matter what tool i use. Just created one exactly like you just posted.
As soon as i select the tool  and click ok the "color only" in X triangles are lost and will not come back until i exiit out and come back into Lazyturn. I also just got a TODO.
Let me reboot, play around a little here, since it may only be on my end.
RICH

MODIFIED: MUST BE SOMETHING ON MY END. DOING IT WITH PAST VERSIONS OF LAZYTURN AND ALL FILES.
                Maybe the color is worn out of the triangles from playing with them  so much! :D

Memory is going,
I'll reload Lazycam update date 3.00.2,     
Any body remember around what date art posted the Lazyturn version which was self standing?

Hey RICH,
Pop back to page 46, Reply# 455
See if your indicators are colored on the back side like mine.
Just curious.

Thanks Guys,
Didn't have the problem then so there was no comment by me.
It did the same pointer thing on the computer here at work, for a few tries at first then went back to normal,..... and now it's ok. Dah!....................
Let me see if  i can find what fed the Gremlin when i get back on the home computer later.

Hi Art

In mach3 (turn) and Lazyturn the feedrate is in MM/min or inch/min but  on my old conventional lathe feed is in MM (or inch) per revolution.
Could it be possible to make Mach3 and Lazyturn in MM or inch per revolution or do i stand alone in this wish.
feed per revolution gives a constant chips thickness regardless the spindle speed.
