Spiffy new Lathe Widget Use your Y-axis lathe to deburr large cross-holes. This new Widget calculates the chamfering sines and cosines to drop the tool exactly where you need it. Then it outputs %XYZ blocks (not plotable) to move the tool along a 3D path without spinning in C at all. Cleans up big burrs amazingly well!

That's $105 worth of extra value. - Priority Support (24 mo) now comes with 2 hours of online training, which can also be used to pay for contract programming or even Widget design! That's $210 worth of extra value.
