Teach mode - lathe spindle direction

Just ran across this, apparently (PR1853004) others too...


Teach mode can't figure out the automatic spindle direction unless there is a profile move in the operation?!?!?!?!?!


And the solution is to change the documentation rather than fix the software?!?!?!?!


What a mickey-mouse outfit you are becoming!


Is it REALLY that hard to figure out?


Doh...The tool is on this side of centerline, and the insert is topside, WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED?????????????????


Jeez... I'm glad we bought Esprit for doing wire edm programming.

Re: Teach mode - lathe spindle direction


The PR you reference does not complain about the behavior or request a change, it only requested that the behavior be documented. The documentation was updated the same day.


There are ERs for your request already in the system, and the Product Manager agrees with you, but I don't know the plans for implementing them. If you contact GTAC, please reference the Master ER 1857710.
