>>However how long are we looking before you guys release a commercial version with a finishing toolpath included.

  It coudl be awhile. ( A LONG while.).

  I do intend to do a finish profile next, so at that point, if you take great care, you could cut jobs. It may not be too long before it at least outstrips lazycams ability, it already does in some respects. But as a hobby project I set no timelines, I suspect it will be buildiong over time for a long time, but I do wish to get it cutting profiles at least in the near term. The intermediate step between rough and finish is actually the key to completion, its a very hard step to do, but will add quite a bit of capability in terms of keeping it easy and lazy, which is a primary concern for me.

Hi Hank,
  That does look a bit weird.
I'll bet there is something awry in the DXF.
Can you post the DXF ?
Thanks,
RC

Happy New Year!
Here is what I tried to post before. Pullout 0.050,Stock Clear0.050,and depth of cut0.010. It cuts off the round edges of the part,Don't know if this is my problem or? Have to offset a vertical line in the dwg. for it will not produce,and says line intersept. I tried all I can do to get this to work for me,unless there is something I am missing,Which is usually the case.  Thanks,    Hank S.

Hank,
Happy new year ti you too !

You probably have intersecting/overlapping lines or entities in your DXF, can you post it?
Might be able to see where they are and point them out to you.

OK...There are definetly some probiems with it.
You need to send the actual DXF file from your CAD...not a JPG picture or capture.
The DXF will have all of the dwg. info so we can open it up and look at it.
