What types of lathes have you tested these tool paths on? What types of posts have been written for this?

Steven,

Good user interface design would keep Operation Type in the Manager. Should the user wish to undock Operation Types from the Manager allow them to float the dialog.

Thank you,

The third video in the link is exactly how I want to machine turned parts:

Stock Automation For Turned Parts

At all times the CADCAM system knows and displays the state of remaining stock and can roll back the state of the stock if I want to insert a machining operation. Like with mill you pick a virtual machine up front that's tied to the machine controller. At any time you can see how your in process toolpaths will machine using both virtual machine simulation and part simulation.
