lathe like miling with a router

Hello all,

I'm considering to add a kind of lathe "milling" on my router , exactly like shown on masso home page "Run large complex G-codes" (see picture attached)

Could it be done with the Mill/router CNC controller ?

Wich axis should be used for the lathe usual "C" axis ?

I have in mind to upgrade my controller to a 5 axis because of a slaved motor on the Y axis that a would like to be autosquared (the B axis will then be used), could the remaining A axis be used for that kind of lathe process considering more a 4th axis on a CNC/milling machine thant a real lathe ?

And in the end what about the post processor for that kind of jobs ?

thanks in advance

Hi zoomak

The video of the rotary axis is on my machine.
3D machining is done in the Mill and not Lathe.
The traditional rotary axis is the A axis and that is what I used in this setup. Mine also uses the 5 axis version with the dual Y axis

Here is the original video
Cheers Peter
