    Everyone using Lathe Cries. Just thing if you have to alter a path for some reason. Do you want to deal with editing the solid model our just edit a few lines and arcs. Whats easier?

    Your better off creating a turn profile and using standard geometry for tool paths

    Toolholder models

    one thing I dont like about machine sim on a hrz is it dont respect full Z retract at index. It blows the tool thru the part. not sure why

    Toolholder models

    we use mostly Technics holders and they can be download as a solid. one thing you need to do is edit the solid and cut the taper off at the gage line.other wise it will display the the taper hanging out of the spindle

    just remember dowel pins are for position, not lateral holding force, use keys for that

    Lag issues

    mine are between 1 an d 2 gig. one thing I found was if at all possible DO NOT use solid geometry in your tool paths, it will kill the regen time I always create curves and surfaces and drive the path from that
