Ill admit off the bat Im new at lathe programming and trying to figure out two different issues Im having with my 2021 TL-1 lathe in regards to VPS programming using the shape creature. Machine is out of warranty and bought used with I think 26 hours on it.

1. Shape creator generates the scp file without the radius value for a line but includes the R. Copy of the text file that is generated. Radius should be .060

2. The code is generated using the VPS OD profile removal cycle. The G71 roughing cycle is coming up with 339 multiple code error but not sure where the problem is. I did fill in the R0.060

Probably something stupid that Im missing and I wonder if I need to see about a software update for the lathe.
 
What is the (XXXX) at the first line in there for. im wondering if its reading that as an X axis move.
Thought I had replied. I didnt put the name of the program in. I switched the G42 to G40 to get the program to run and made a final pass afterwards. I only had 40 small bolts to run for a welding fixture table.
