Hi Dennis:

>>What i fund in the LT code and i hope i can explain this well enough the billet is 15.91 MM and LT is set for this Dia next the profile is 10 MM at the smallest dia and LT shows this with the arrows when the cursor is over them and with a .5 MM per pass cut the code is generated with a + 4.5 MM to the actual billet size and therefore when the profile is cut it leaves this excess on the turned part so when the machine first starts it cuts air before ever hitting the billet i understand that it is a roughing code but if i tell LT to leave 0 on the part why is it leaving 4.5 MM i would think it would leave .5 MM or even 1MM but 4.5 MM that doesn't seam correct.

   Can you show me the dxf, and a screenshot of the toolpath as well as the Gcode produced. I'll get you an answer as to why its happening. Its likely some bug in my Gocde output more than the profile generation, perhaps my radisu/diamter not working or soemthing..

Thanks
Art

Hi, Art

Memory leak gone hear also, Thank You for the last Little Bug fixes.

I still have 2 or 3 Little Bug's, That need attending to, I think they will resolve the issues that Dennis is having also at this time, pic's below:

Pic, 1. The Whole Picture and Rough Profile shown are 100 % Correct now, The PST G-code is Good also, In my opinion, Anyway.

Pic, 2. Here's where the problems come in, If you use any value for the Depth Per Pass other than "0.5", The Whole Profile Rough Passes are moved Off the Part Profile by 0.5000 more than it should be even though the Stock Clerance is set to "0".

If Rough Value of 1.0 is set, Right Face cut finishes 0.5000 away from X0.0 Centerline. PST G-code file verifys this, Entire Part Radius is 0.5000 to Big.

If Rough Value of 0.55 is set, Right Face cut finishes 0.5000 away from X0.0 Centerline. PST G-code file verifys this, Entire Part Radius is 0.4500 to Big.

If Rough Value of 0.4 is set, Right Face cut finishes 0.3000 away from X0.0 Centerline. PST G-code file verifys this, Entire Part Radius 1 center major dir is 0.3000 to Big.
Radius 2 small minor dir is 0.1000 to Big.

Got to go to airport, Broken Airplane, darn !!!! hear are 2 pic and dxf, I used ----- finish editing in awhile.

Edit: I'm back, Still adding info hear, Art, The screen view and PST show the Error's, I think the Rough Profile Settings windo Values are being used Improperly somewhere.

Thanks, Chip

Hi All,
I just D/L'd the zip,and now cannot get anything to load. I should say I got one to load,and then get a file is - in and cannot load,moved it around,and still cannot get it to load. Tried different dxf's and all that I have done,still cannot load. Can someone take a look at the dxf,and see what I am doing wrong AGAIN. or ?

Hi, Art

Yes, the posted g-code is off, the view seems correct now, but the rough profile settings are being applied funny in the variables used, I'm Thinking, I now that's a scary thought "Me Thinking",  HU.

Thanks, Chip

ART,
Using the DEC 29 version.
The graphics look right along with the paths but posted gcode has changed.
See attachments. I read in your other post that the actual gcode wasn't of to much concern
to you but this seems like we are going backwards. Maybe you can shed some light.

Tried LT on three more computers: "" using DEC 25-4 version ""
FPC#1- 3 GHZ / 1G RAM - CUSTOM- XP PRO SP2 -----------NO PROBLEMS
FPC#2- 900 MHZ / 256 RAM - LAPTOP- XP PRO SP2 -------WON'T RUN ANY VERSION AFTER DEC 17
"" ie; it will not create a graphic profile ""
FPC#3- 3.6 GHZ / 1.5G RAM - EMACHINE -XP PRO SP2 ----X POINTER COLORS ARE LOST

RICH
MODIFICATIOINS IN "".......""

  The profile you show is bad, a profile doesnt have top and bottom, only the top.. see the examples posted in the threads..
