Could someone explain how npt_pipe.ngc is intended to be used? Is this called from MDI or can it be connected to the lathe macros?
Is there an easy way to extend this to work with metric configs?

I was able to make a water tight adapter for the new RO water filter so the immediate need for this is past.

Looking at some of the other posts, I guess I need to look into how the lathe macros hook up to the GUI. My lathe is still running axis and I'll wait until I have time to update to gmoccapy and integrate then.

I think npt_pipe.ngc will still need some changes for metric units unless there is some magic that can switch imperial to metric while this subroutine runs???

The lathe macros were originally written for Axis. They don't really integrate with the GUI at all, other than being displayed in a tab in the GUI. The call a set of G-code subroutines with the various settings passed in as parameters.
