Hi,

In the lathe documentation, under "Stock Object" .....it reads:


The X size will be the length of the stock (along the lathe's Z axis).
The X and Y size should both be set to the stock diameter.

Should it be:


The X size will be the length of the stock (along the lathe's Z axis).
The Z and Y size should both be set to the stock diameter.

??

Thanks!

Just ordered my licence.

Regards,

Matt

Hi Matt I have just gone though setting up a mill as a lathes. Cambam drawing for Lathe are drawn on the X - Y axis and converted by post processor. the setting of Stock is there fore on X-Y but I think •(The X and Y size should both be set to the stock diameter). Proberly Should read •The Y size should be set to the stock diameter.
Regards
Nick

Hmm, the part that bothered me was that the X can't be both the stock length and the stock diameter at the same time?

Thanks!

Matt
