    What the best CAM software to create G-code for turning with a Flashcut controller

    Im completely new to the CNC side of things, but I do understand some of it. I have an engineering back ground, just not the CNC programming side of things.

    I have Solidworks for CAD and i have been trying to use Fusion 360, but they do not have a post processor that works very well with the flashcut control software. I can make it work but there is something off with the profile. Its like its working of diameter settings instead of radius and I cant figure out how to change it.

    Later tonight I will post pictures of my model and pictures of what the piece turns out like when the program is done.

    Well, you could set your steps/inch (mm) to double (or the inverse?) what they are for the X axis. That would put into radius mode. As I recall Fusion only outputs diameter.
