OneCNC XR8 Lathe missing thread simulation - options?


Oct 24, 2021
Am a new user to XR8 Lathe Express and am currently using XR8 Mill Expert. After some testing have found cut threads are not generated/displayed in either the 2d or 3d simulator. This was quite a shock as lathe CAM threading is so fundamental. Checking with my OneCNC rep, he confirmed that no version of XR8 lathe displays cut threads in the simulator. Am familiar with two other lathe CAM packages and both display threading in their 2d/3d simulations.

XR8 Mill Expert does display thread milling cut threads (60deg only) in its 3d simulator.

How are users checking/verifying XR8 Lathe threading parameters without simulation?

Thanks, Ed
