    I have been looking for a while now for a cam solution that works well with mach turn.
    I am looking to make small model tank barrels. I am new to the world of cnc as some have seen by prev posts so please forgive anything you see as stupid or tell me why it's stupid.
    I have tried the lazy turn but can get no output to code not sure why but the mach forum appears to be down or it is for me.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

    John,
    do you know if it's still crap in the latest V28 build? They've added support for Mill/Turn and it would seem surprising (but perhaps not for them?) if basic lathe wasn't sorted out first.
    Regards,
    Nick
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D
