Hi there,

I got CNCWrite and have it working great for an Integrex using Mazatrol Matrix Nexus 2 control.

I am trying to do an engraving project on a lathe using the exact same control.

It works, but the one issue I have is when the Integrex goes into milling mode, it does everything in radius, but when the lathe goes into milling mode, it stays in diameter.

Because CNCWrite spits out code using radius values I am constantly messing with scale size and spacing to try and make it look ok.

Is there any way to fix this either in the lathe or CNCWrite?

Thanks

couldnt you use "G10.9 X0 (RADIUS MODE=X0 ON X1 OFF)" to achieve the desired result in the code? i dont know much about cnc write. it must have a post of some sort, right?

Turned out that G122.1 was the magic code for me if anyone else has this problem.
