How to use g-code smoothing with a lathe

Post by suntravel »

If you program feed/min instead of feed/revolution, it is possible to use smoothing on a lathe also for turning.

Also good to use for mill-turn with C-Axis and small vector files for a smooth surface.

At the moment lathe will not feature smoothing from the UI or G64 to turn it on, but with setting the parameters it works fine.

Uwe post a picture of your head. I bet it is the size of a basketball in order to hold your huge brain! You and Keith make things look easy. Stop doing that it makes us mere mortals feel bad. Can you not make it look like more of a struggle? Please. :(
