start point in rounding toolpath

Postby Toad » Tue Aug 04, 2015 1:47 pm

Hi all, probably a stupid question, but in the rounding tool path, is there a way to change the start point. Mine wants to start at 170 degrees instead of 0. how do I change that?

Hi: I don't think you can specify a start point. Think of the A axis the same as a Y axis. I believe all you can do is specify the 0-0-0- point and the program does it's thing. Norm

Thanks Norm.I think it was because I found an offset checked. put it back on 0 and it worked right.
Who knows.
