    4 axis display problem

    I`m new to TNG so be kind with me.
    I have a problem with displayed toolpath in 4 axis.
    When work coordinate is the same as machine display is ok.

    When work coordinate is offset from machine coordinate it distort the toolpath like this:

    In the old softare with offset didn`t had this problem:

    The toolpath work without problems only it is displayed incorrect.
    If disable rotary axis in display 3d toolpath display is correct and not distorted, but not 3D.
    I hope I explained well the problem, if not I`m here for any clarifications.

    Re: 4 axis display problem

    I really need an answer and solution because in 4 axis toolpaths, things get worse.
    Here is an example of 4 axis toolpath displayed on only 3 axis on TNG.

    Workaround for this is for now to copy a profile with machine in simulation and load toolpath in machine position, aka work position to machine position to see toolpath displayed correctly, then I can load toolpath in real profile for machining.
    Here it is displayed correctly.

    I hope this is a temporary solution, and it will be fixed soon.

    Send me these g-codes. I assume profile is the same.
