I am pleased to announce the Newfangled Solutions NFS Turn package.
NFS turn is a conversational or interactive package. Its aimed at the toolroom kind of lathe work- making things like bolts, bushings, shafts, etc. You choose from a menu of common lathe operations, like turn, face, thread, chamfer, drill, bore, etc. Each operation presents a simple screen where you fill in the blanks for the operation you want.
A unique feature of NFS turn is the ability to do an immediate operation. When you have filled in the blanks, you have two buttons- "Do IT" and "Add to File". The Do It button will immediately run the operation. Add to File will let you build a complex part composed of many operations.
There is a Youtube video of this wizard at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiuQ9dKVzBM]NFS Turn Wizard For Mach3 - YouTube
NFS turn operates under the same license as the Mill Addons, so if you already have an NFS license you are good to go. If not see the links above to purchase a license. NFS turn will work in demo mode, but it wont save a file.
See the machsupport forum for the wizard code. NFS Turn Wizard
I have downloaded the wizard - ok - except I can't see the bottom row of buttons when I load it, ie., where the reset, do it , add to file etc is - it seems to be off the screen to the bottom- what gives??
