Hello everyone, I'm looking to set the B axis tilt in LinuxCNC, where the B axis is positioned at 90 degrees to the Z axis in a lathe configuration (CXZB).

- I have set GEOMETRY = !CXZB

Are you trying to get the physical motor working or are you referring to the screen preview not showing what you expect?

It's just to check the G-Code, I think the engine must be running. I don't have access to the machine at the moment.

I'm having trouble picturing your machine.
'XZBC', is this a lathe with a milling spindle that tilts in the B axis?
If so are you expecting the GCode preview to be tilted out of the horizontal plane be the B angle like this:

I'm out of time for today but maybe try:

GEOMETRY = !B!CZX

Note that this feature has bugs regarding the work offsets so I'm not sure how useful that is to you,
