Andy you are a genius! this worked, somehow, but something is working...I will have to figure out what and how...I had to delete T from the routine (I have nothing entered in the tooltable except what is in your file), only then run the program, something changes the speed revs too..it will take me a while to figure out how it works but this is awesome. Thanks a lot!!

It would be better to create a tool table rather than remove the T commands.
(It only needs to contain one tool)

I'll try to test everything at the weekend and I'll let you know if there's any progress, for now I've only managed to try turning, I need to understand the entered dimensions, which works, although there are explanations next to each entry, the numbers in the css parameters and in the speed parameters are a bit confusing to me.

I agree completely, we have to wait for what the boss Andy has to say about it, and I would like it to be remade, but I don't know how :)

You mean feed/min rather than feed/rev? 

It's possible but I think it's a bad idea.

Or am I misunderstanding?

You shouldn't need to load the ngc file, that would be terribly inconvenient.

Where have you put the .ngc files? Are they included in your SUBROUTINE_PATH ?
