    On the current version (2.8.1), go to the Settings tab and then choose the 4th Axis Rotary sub-tab in the upper left.

    Should have stated in my original post. This is uncharted territory for me. I'll explore the 4th axis rotary sub tab.
    I'm attempting to use my mill to "turn" a round part on my 4th axis. I though that a special post processor was required to do that function.

    Thanks again!

    You should download the free manual from Tormach, it will save you a lot of pondering.
