for smaller diameters.) Think of it as the CVV of turning. It holds
an equal importance for turning as CVV does for milling...
BTW, multistart threeads can already be done. Tapers too, probably.
At any rate, CSS IMO trumps these two. It's the most BASIC of
the "higher" CNC lathe functions...
- Hi Randy:
I'm embarrased to say no control was added for that. I will update the
relase tommorrow with a fix for that. In the meantime, you can use the
screen designer to copy the controls from Mill to turn. Just open the mill
screens, selct those controls, click copy, then load the 1024.lset screens,
and use paste to put them on..
Thanks for the bug..
