Please advise on v31 turning

I need a magic bean, to give me a better attitude toward V31 turning… I HATE HATE HATE IT!
simple stuff like cut direction (back turning). I want to stop cutting so much air.

I have no training, but I’ve been programming and machining for 30+ years.

Does anyone know of a good tutorial or manual?

Maybe this thread will help a bit

STL for turning operations?
