Hi All,
I wish I had better news to tell,but after reading the PDF on what and whatnot to do, I guess I will read until I memorize it by heart,but still have problems. I snapped all lines to a new dwg.and come up with different errors. The file RC gave me works fine,and I trie dto extend the end,BASE and worked like it should,so I created the mate.ROOK and came up with errors. snapped lines,and edited layers,and joined lines,and whatever else I could thimk of,but here are the ones in question,and am going to leave it alone for a while as my head is STARTING to Hurt. LT does have tight tollerences, just not able to get things right now. I'll Play after a While. Thanks,   Hank S.

Hi Guy's
Happy New year, well thing's started off with mixed results i had a problem with a file for the mill and emailed it to the support in return they said it was a bug in Mach and that the latest version Brian fixed the graphics bug and all is well so i upgraded to the latest version this did fix the mill issue but now the lathe graphics has gone wacko what is the version everyone is using for the lathe .

HANK,
Post the dxf. I look at every one posted. I sometimes test one for import and export via five programs and 9 exports for import to LT. Don't ask, sometimes i am goofy!  A quick look by somebody will tell you what's wrong with it.

 :) Happy First Day Everyone !

Hey Hank, I keep a bottle of aspirin on my desk at all times. :D (and plenty of Budweiser to wash them down with)

Your problem areas are most likely at the ends of the black profile line.
That line should be continuous and it appears there are breaks in it.
Actually....straight lines are solid black, Polylines are solid black and ARCS show up faded...or gray.

  And as Chip and RICH said, the DXF file would really help.

Bye for now,
RC

RC and Dave,
I'll create the sticky topic and put some files there.
Yes this post is getting big. In fact a file of all the posts is "only" about 180 pages long.
I figure if you take away repetition and put it into some perspective you would come away with
maybe 20 pages. I was going to steal the verbage with pride  and put in rough form into a quick and dirty
manual. Format:
-LAZYTURN MANUAL
 ( it will continously evolve) with the following appendix sections
 Append "A"  - LAZYTURN - QUICK AND DIRTY STEP BY STEP
 APPEND "B"  - CAD DRAWINGS AND COMMON MISTAKES
 APPEND "C"  - DXF FILE EXPORTS
 APPEND "D"  - POSTED DXF FILES ( [ FIXED / FILES THAT WORK ] FILE NAME / POSTED REPLY REF NUMBER )
 APPEND "E"  - PRACTICAL TURNING CONSIDERATIONS

Any thoughts on the above?
RICH

Fantastic, idea, Rich. I especially like the area for working dxf files that users can try and see if they work with their PC's and hopefully report back.

Have at it, my friend -  ;)

RICH,
   Looks like a good plan.
Here is an illustration of what we recently saw with Hanks file.

Thanks,
