Hello DaveA,
The rapid depicted is from the end of the roughing cycle to the start of the finish pass.
I just change the G0 Z* X* move to G0 Z*
                                                   G0 X*
Do you have any experience with Vector CAM ?
Thanks,
RC

When are you going to start writing something for the Mill portion of Lazcam?
Can't just sit back after learning it and not share that knowledge with dummies like me.

lol! you're kidding right? ;)

Seriously though, wasn't there a German manual for LazyCam? I posted a message on the yahoo forum asking about it and possibly it can be translated? I'm not German but possibly we could get by with an online translater?

I know they're not great but just a thought?

DAVE,
Never looked for one the WEB. If there is one ,and even a crude translation could be made, it would give insight
on use. As you can tell, currently only interested in the lathe part. As far as writing anything, just kidding, but then when I need help I'll know who to summon. ;)

To All,
One of the frustrating parts of Lazcam turn is defining settings for the rough & finish tools  and  additionaly the parameters in terms of how they relate to the cutting of the profile. One of the easiest ways to get a good flavor of the relationship is to import a drawing like the attached. Now  try different settings for  the different tools / parameters, create profile , see the effects on cutting / OOPS back- try somemore settings ect..

Since the attached file has all common values of 1" it's easy to review the GCODE moves as they relate to the profile when posted into MACH.
Will post a little something on this as a few pitcures are worth a thousand words.
