Just downloaded the new version of mach3 with lcam, i,m using it on my newly built cnc lathe & am a newcomer to cnc work. I am able to import an autocad drawing in dxf & save in Gcode but when putting it in the auto screen the file is loaded vertical i,e it would be a facing profile rather than a turned spindle as drawn.
Also is there a part of lcam that will be able to work out the roughing cuts if the stock diameter is given.
thanks help Gary.
