Hi Guys:

  Well, I guess weve hit that milestone of getting to posting of the finish passes. Obviously we still have some bugs to
deal with , but Im releaseing this anyway because Ill be gone down south for a week, and figured some of you could
at least get a finish pass on those things that DO work..

  Keep reporting.. Ill catch up when I return. This version will also be psted as release 1.0 in the laztcam download, Rich's
excellent manual is included in the release package as well as his example from the docs. Ill compile a list of examples to
add for the next official release.

Be back soon.. :)

Hi:

 Just be vcery carefull, check your paths carefully before cutting. I did one this moprning and it was fine,
but as we all know, its early to say it works, bugs definitely exist.. that having been said, your finished object
is about to look a whole lot better that before.. The jaggies are gone.. :)

ART,
Enjoy the sun. Will check the release out and hopefully finish some sections of the manual while your away.
But most of all just want to do one turning from it, sort of like taking the new car out for it's first ride.  ;)

ART,
Here is my  first actualy cutting test using LazyTurn. Not bad at all. Didn't realize that no ARC coding was posted until it was done machining. ???
May be wrong, but need arc coding to get a real nice finish or an increased tolerance as that would minimise the straights around the ball.
You can see them in the pics.  Attached pic is  of rough, 1st finish, 2nd  finish, and completed piece.

I decided to do a quick new Appendix "A" and rough draft is attached.
