and I get this code...
(T1 | OD ROUGH RIGHT - 80 DEG. | ID CODE - 1.)
(TOOLPATH GROUP - TOOLPATH GROUP-2)
G28 U0. V0.
G50 S6000 R1
G96 S200 M03 R1
G0 X10.14142 Z.07071
G99 G1 X10. Z0. F.01
G28 U0. Y0.
At least I think that is what you are after.

You read my mind.I want an M04 so I used a Left-164 tool and rotated it B180, comp right ( code and backplot) looked good.I guess it was straigt forward.Curious how to make this less redundant.Do I modify and save the default setting for face and turn ops or modify the post (rather not)?How did u get the T01.01?That would be nice.

everything else is the same. If you have the inhouse post, you should have this...
for "A" definition tools set to 1, "B" set to 2, "C" set to 3, and so ...

I was give a big list of other Tips/Tricks with Lathe by some of the Developers here at CNC, I've just been so busy I haven't gotten a chance to post them yet. More to follow...

When creating a new Lathe Tool, the Lathe Tool Setup dialog box will show how the tool is loaded Graphically.
In the Lathe Tool Manager (or in the Tool List in an Operation) the graphics will indicate the insert direction. The Inserts shown in Orange are defined as "Insert Down" and the yellow inserts are defined as "Insert Up".
Sometimes with ID work there is very little clearance between the Tool/Holder and the part. This can cause a false collision warning if the tool is too close to the part. In that case you may need to reduce the entry/exit clearance in the Lathe Stock Update dialog, located in the Lathe Operation Parameters.
It’s common for a lathe holder to support multiple inserts, for example different corner radii. Our tool catalogs contain most of the holder/insert combinations, but not all of them. In that case, you can define your own tool by selecting the holder from a holder catalog, and the insert from the insert catalog. You can even combine a lathe metric insert with an inch holder, or a lathe inch insert with a metric holder. Remember to save these custom built tools to a Lathe Tool Library for future use.
I've uploaded an example file to the FTP site. It is named "RIGHT HAND VS LEFT HAND - PCLNR3225P12-R08.MCX-5" and is located in the "Lathe" sub folder.
When you are setting up a new Lathe Tool, I recommend you use the "Draw Tool" button on the "Define Tool" dialog box. This will draw a wireframe representation of your tool, and will show you the clearance angles that are setup for that tool (indicated by the red and purple circles). If the orientation of the tool looks correct on the screen, then the tool is properly setup.
Let me know if anyone has questions about creating a Lathe Tool and I'll provide some follow-up information.

These reply on the M602/603 commands (on the Okuma Multus) to orientate the tool to use (for example) the CNMG insert, or the DNMG insert.
The Coroplex MT is tricky, as it is a R390 two insert endmill, and a CCMT and DCMT turning tool combined.

Save that new plane as a unique name "drafting".
That works or just click on Planes = Gview
