Brother M140X1 can not post internal turning program.

When i tried to generate M140X1 internal turning program.

This alarm was come out. is it possible to solve this problem?

I think Fusion Lathe function only can generate X-axis turning program.


Error: A-axis turning is only allowed when turning along the Y-axis.

Could you share a sample file that we could test some things with?

Assuming you're using the M140X2 post, I did notice something in there that might help (but it's just a crapshoot):

//                        MANUAL NC COMMANDS
// The following ACTION commands are supported by this post.
//     turningAngle:angle         - Defines the XY rotation angle for turning

It seems to me (and I could be wrong) that if we were to put a turning angle of 0 before our turning toolpath, it might allow us to post out in the X, as the default value of 90 degrees has been overridden (90 is the value for Y axis turning)
