    No A values in the negative!

    Whenever i send out a continuous 5 axis program with Alphacam it will never output negative a values no matter how I configure the machine. I have been led to believe it is not an issue with my post because it simulates in ACAM without rotating A to a negative value the C axis Rotates instead and besides my bit turning at 18001 rpm its not helpful at all. also when i send out 4 axis moves on either A or C axis I get full rotation on them. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

    Hi,

    check in your post this.

    Template postprocessor:
    $577 Allow Positive and Negative Tilt (1 = Yes, 0 = No).
    ?

    Vba postprocessor :
    .AllowPositiveAndNegativeTilt = True

    Do not know your next logic inside, but this primary solve this issue.

    Have a nice day.
