Hello Andy! Do you take requests?
« on: September 13, 2021, 19:23:51 pm »
I was wondering if in your next update you could include another option to the "Lathe cut direction" to include "both"? Most of the time I cut in both directions to save time. The standard is to go to the right end of the part, go into cutting depth, cut along Z toward the chuck until the desired spot is reached, pull out to rapid height, and return to the right end of the part for another bite. What I do is when I reach the desired spot, I plunge into the part for another bite, and then cut away from the chuck until I get to the right end. Then I plunge to the next height and cut some more. I will include an example of what I am trying to do. If this could become an option it would eliminate a lot of editing. This method of cutting turns a 6 minute part into a 3 minute, 20 second part.

Thanks for listening.
