    Default GibbsCam NPT

    Hello all, I am looking for a little assistance on creating an 11 1/2" NPT on the O.D. of my part. I for some reason cannot get it to thread how I need it to, that is when i'm not getting an error on my machine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Thanks.

    What version do you have? Does the g code look right? What is your experience level with machine and software? More info needed....

    Lathe or mill?

    Lathe has always taken a bit of screwing around to get correct, the help documentation if you search under NPT is actually helpful and offers two ways of doing it and IIRC has a table for the dimensions needed.

    For milling go to
    Plug-ins>Geometry>Create tapered thread and select your thread from the table. Then just use a regular contour operation or two to cut your thread.
