    Default Mill Turning on your Tormach 1100 PCNC?

    I want to do some mill turning on my Tormach 1100 S3. I have watched a number of YouTube videos and tried to learn as much as I can before attempting
    to Mill Turn a part or two. Has anyone on the forum run their 1100 PCNC for Mill Turning? I am using Fusion 360 and went through their multi chapter tutorial
    on regular lathe turning as well.

    My main concern is changing the post processor file in Fusion. I have watched NYC CNC's video on this too.

    Here is a list of some resources for anyone else considering this operation that I found helpful.

    Lucas is busy a YouTuber videos. He discusses changing the Post Processor setting to allow lathe ops.
    VAR = turning =(currentSelection.getType() **TYPE_TURNING)



    Jason Hughes videos on mill turning




    Eric Colvin's videos





    Dragon Innovations YouTube video


    Dragonwrath Innovations quote from comments on his video:
    4 years ago
    Very good question, wasn't sure if I had mentioned in videos.
    In 360 select the post processor you want to use and click
    open config. control - F to 'find' and look for 'xformat'.
    There will be a scale: value, it is likely set to 2 in your
    case. Set it to 1 and you should be good to go! Thanks for watching

    Was finally able to find the time and run some test Mill Turning on the Tormach 1100 S3. Came out really great in Aluminum. Final parts will be in brass.
    Thanks for everyone who helped. Cismontguy.
