Thanks again Jackal.. Maybe we should work together sometime. Ok! So what Hurco is that you show? I still have all the old Blue ones. Kmb1's. I try to do miniature parts when I can. The Blue Hurco's look like Cincinnati's when you are cutting with a 3/16th end mill.
I "stumble" wrote an AutoLisp routine to extract just the point locations using AutoCAD. Then I "brainwashed" it through Excel to convert it to incremental for the looping process. That helped a lot.
About a Goodway with Anilam you wrote . . . I'm going to run the exact same thing that you are. Mach 3 with Vipers. Maybe later go on to EMC- linux.
I just picked up one of these and while it works - sort of - I'd be more comfortable with a PC and Mach3. Did you ever do yours?
I'll be in and out today (actually picking up the lathe today) but I'd love to chat if you have a few minutes for me. I'm in the Orlando area and up until 11pm so don't worry overly much about waking me.
