I only know this is how it has worked since I loaded PathPilot.

Yes I changed teh AXYZ to XYZA and I have restarted pathPilot several times. It is displaying the correct toolpath image NOW when you enable teh 4th axis display (PP option) But it only rotates teh cone.

In this section of teh UI. Why would it state NONE

if enable_a:
self.enable_fourth_axis_toolpath_display(None)

def init_fourth_axis(self):
enable_a = T
if self.ui.redis.hexists('machine_prefs', 'enable_fourth_axis_toolpath'):
enable_a = self.ui.redis.hget('machine_prefs', 'enable_fourth_axis_toolpath') == 'True'
if enable_a:
self.enable_fourth_axis_toolpath_display(None)
else:
self.disable_fourth_axis_toolpath_display(None)

"The None keyword is used to define a null value, or no value at all."
So because self is inferred by the call and widget is not used in the call at all, but since the call expects something None is passed.

so since self is inferred the call is effectively
self.enable_fourth_axis_toolpath_display()

OK that makes sense.

Question seeing how you run LinuxCNC does IT display teh 4th axis tool pathing correctly. Rotating teh toolpath and not teh tooltip icon .

Thanks, (;-) TP

If you're asking me, I don't run LinuxCNC, I do reference it for trying to find how things normally work but I run PP for a Lathe.

you know that the Y and Z Join limit switch position in the INI file needs to change
so it is the mesurment between your Switch and the CENTER YZ of the Rotory table

the pathpilot does not display out of box g-code
i atatched the venusmilo file around A

I tried that file and it displays but does not run teh 4th axis toolpathing correctly. I have come to teh conclusion that PathPilot is not capable of a proper 4th axis toolpathing.

OH Well , It is what it is. (;-) TP
