I'm finishing getting the MaxNC T2 lathe repaired/configured and have both axis working (spindle to be finished when I get some parts)

If I where to program a simple profile that has a depth greater than I can cut in one pass does EMC do multiple passes?

You can tell I don't know anything about CNC

That is something you do in the CAM program or if you write your g code by hand you have to do it. I have some lathe subroutines in the subroutine section here that are a big help (to me) with one off's on my lathe.

Thanks john, I'll do a bit more reading. I figured as much but couldn't be sure.

I'm trying to use the Inkscape plugin that is referenced in the CAM forum here, I'll ask there how they handle that sort of thing.
