Hi Rod, and welcome to the forum. MeshCAM only uses the A axis to index the work during a 4-Axis job. It does not generate active A-axis code, such as machining on a cylinder.

All opinions in this post are mine alone. I am not a MeshCAM employee, I do not have a financial interest in MeshCAM, nor do I speak for MeshCAM. MeshCAM user since Beta 5 in 2003. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=15333 :ugeek:
