I am going to be using SolidCAM with my CNC lathe conversion so I wanted to find out any tips and tricks that anyone has that is already using this combination. I know that SolidCAM does not have a post processor for Mach3 which is not fun but I guess I will have to find a way to work around that problem. Also I have been trying to figure out machine setups and what is the best mode, such as diametric or radial in Mach. So please, feel free to post you little pearls of wisdom here!
Does anyone know the default setting in SolidCAM as far as whether it outputs measurements in radius or diameter mode? I am trying to make sure my setup is correct. I made some test cuts but have not been able to determine if the settings are right.
