The graphical preview needs the right GEOMETRY entry in the [DISPLAY] section of the iNI. Try CXYUV and XYUVC and see if there is a difference. There might not be, it is possible that the (special) foam preview doesn't handle a rotary axis.

Note that even if this is the case, it is purely a graphical/preview problem, the physical machine will operate as commanded.

Thanks to everyone who responded. It turned out to adjust all 5 axes. The machine worked. Works better than masn3. It turned out to cut a good wing of the aircraft.

I think we should not change the title to be able to be found later by people having the same problem...

Good afternoon friends. I want to contact you again. In my graphical interface, the axis two planes x,y and u,v  are displayed at a very small distance from each other. It's about 100mm. Is it possible to somehow correct this distance by 670mm. For a better understanding of how the finished part will look.

From the Axis docs:

The special comments (XY_Z_POS) and (UV_Z_POS) set the Z coordinates of these planes, which default to 0 and 1.5 machine units.


So, include these two comments in the G-code file and the preview will be more accurate.

For and example, see this G-code:

Thanks a lot. I knew it was easy to do. I just couldn't find how.
