    Manually programming TNRC

    I am thinking that what you're showing is that to center-line you wouldn't need to compensate in any direction because everything is already set to center-line. It feels like I'm over complicating it and it's probably pretty simple.

    Manually programming TNRC

    This definitely helps. But how would it compare to programming tangentially? That's what my main confusion is. Because I know that you have to compensate for the radius when programming that way without tool nose radius comp.

    I take that back. I was looking at the wrong coordinate. This seems to show that there isn't a difference?

    Manually programming TNRC

    So I'm noticing the difference between the radial move and the linear moves is .0221. So this means you must add .0221 to the arc or the R code?

    Manually programming TNRC

    Because I do have to. Aerospace industry does not rely on TNRC. The engineers program to center-line. Not my choice. So anyone have an answer to my question or just peanut gallery stuff?

    Manually programming TNRC

    I've got a question for the lathe programmers out there. I am used to machines that are programmed with the tool set tangent with the work. I am now discovering that some programming is done by setting the tool according to it's center line. meaning you would add the tnr for Z and double it for...
