Ok.
So, basically the way to go is to migrate to Gmoccapy or other GUI?

I am speaking of indexing only, not live 4th axis 3d cutting. I suppose it would need a preference to define if the rotary axis was A, C etc.


Hi George,

If you mill setup has A axis configured would you try this demo and tell me if it looks right ? The tool rotates but the path looks strange. Is it normal ?

File Name: a-indexing.xml
File Size:27 KB

You could also try with axis_9axis.ini

Hi Fern,

I have a project underway on the mill right now so won't be able to try it for a few days. (4th axis not installed right now)

Where do I install the file? Will it give me a icon to pick it as other features do? I am using NativeCam quite a lot now but am pretty unfamiliar with the underlying structure and code.

Your work is extremely appreciated!
George

Then you should try it with axis_9axis.ini

This is basically a demo. Simply open it as a project. A few things will not look right because your lib is not updated.

Next release will be a MAJOR update
