    I am using mach3 turn on my little denford starturn lathe which is new to me. I was assuming the software was corrupt as when I used the wizards to machine a fillet or radius the tool would do the opposite of what I wanted. ie concave when I wanted covex etc. After a little research I now have this sorted by reversing arcs in the settings and all now is fine however sinceI have had the lathe and when using the wizards the G-code or tool path is not displayed. Also as soon as I post process in the wizards the program starts immediately with no further prompting from me.
    Is this a corruption or is there also a setting somewhere I can adjust to rectify this.
    There are a couple of g codes from the previous owner on my pc and they work fine when loaded with the tool path and g-codes being displayed as expected.

    Thanks in advance
    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    Was going to help with the arc's until you fixed it yourself

    Did you get this sorted?, have you looked at the gcode with-in the files themselves to see what's different in the code?

    Hi Lee

    I have sorted this for him and converted it to linuxcnc, just done a encoder disc with 64 slots for the rear of the spindle to make the threading more secure.

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Clive has given me a massive amount of help and I'm
    now on the LinuxCNC path instead.
    Just got to learn how to use it and hopefully find a post processor I can use with Fusion 360.

    Regards

    Dave
