I have been doing a lot of estimating recently with more on the way. It seems to me when I use a canned cycle for the lathe such as G76 the time only shows one pass instead of many passes and the time estimate comes up short. Does anyone else find this same situation or is there something else I should be doing?
This is a known issue with the lathe run time estimation. Since NCPlot only shows the final profile for the canned cycles the run time is based on just the one pass. Until we get it to display all the roughing motions, the run time will be short.
