Lathe Chips

Recommended Posts

Here is a problem than bothers my in MC lathe. When doing bar work if you cutoff the part and try to do a lathe stock preview, you get nothing, unless you do your preview before the cutoff. I then use this preview and my op 2 stock. I am assuming that MC views this as a chip instead of the actual part. Yes I know there are work arounds but is there a way to make this work properly?

There is an option to save the chuck part, cutoff part, or both.  I believe its on the tool page
