    Flow 5 axis 2019

    I remarked also that 2020 TP5 ( there is nothing else new at the moment ,although the familiar questionnaire signaling a new version has already been sent did not yet correct, so Chally 72 , what 2020 version are you on ? But if Aaron says it's now OK in 2020 that's good enough for me... Gracjan

    Flow 5 axis 2019

    I'm running the latest beta. I only got correct regen after i translated and rotated to top/top/top. hmmm

    Flow 5 axis 2019

    I guess I'm the weirdo that finds them. I'll start forwarding it in as seems I never have any luck with 5 axis other than Top/Top/Top. I accept the challenge of finding more for you.

    Lathe Simulation True Threads

    I thought there used to be, but I cannot find it.

    Flow 5 axis 2019

    Since X9 all of the 5 axis paths have worked in WCS. That doesn't mean that there's not a defect here or there, though If I recall for this particular part, we got bit by some changes made to the planes sub-system early in 2019. A lot of the stuff we build on the toolpath side relies on referencing planes, of course. We just didn't have this particular test in our automated test suite (a flow 5 axis in a non-top WCS with tilt set to lines) so we didn't catch it. We have it in there now, though!

    Coolant question

    Similar use case to yours here, sometimes sitting for a week or two, sometimes running 24/7 for months. Using Hangstefers S787D. I've recently started spraying my fixtures with Crown Tool and Die Saver before letting them sit.

    I did get it to regen correctly with my version of 2020. So the fix is in, no worries...
  13. I also have the same question as yours.

    So 5 axis paths are going to work like they're supposed to with WCS now?

    For the record, it didn't regen in my version of 2020 beta either. Must not be released yet.

    Identifying clamp

    Carr-Lane would be my guess as well.

    There was a great video on youtube showing what each setting does and how it works with toolpath size also.

    Identifying clamp

    okay great! thanks guys.

    Have you clicked the Help button at the bottom right while on the Arc Filter page? The help topic on filtering is quite extensive.
  21. I need assistance identifying this clamp in order to purchase one. Is anyone able to identify it and or tell me where I can purchase one? Thank you.

    oh I guess I should have said the "arc filtering/ tolerance" tab. looking for a way to approach how to set these up.

    setting default tool library

    Odd as it may seem you must go through the Machine Definition Manager and set it there for the defaults or for a specific machine lathe, mill, or router. I have seen improvements with keeping track of the holder library being using in 2019, but we still don't have the ability to assign this in the Beta version. I have merged tools and holders into one and then called that holder library so I don't even have to go back and pick a holder for a size I am using.

    setting default tool library

    in "file", "config" pick your default as shown below but lathe...

    2020 at this point. It missed the boat for 2019.

    Flow 5 axis 2019

    2019 or 2020?

    understanding smoothing

    Smoothness relative to what? On Turning just using the correct Geometry insert with the correct SFM and feed per revolution does wonders. Then you can step up to burnishing and make mirror finishes. In Milling you can throw some wiper inserts into a face mill and on flat surfaces get 16 finishes on certain material. With 4in Ball endmills you can step over bigger than a .03 Ball endmill and get less code and better surface finishes. Relative to what exactly? Need a much better idea of the parts, material, machine and things you are doing to give the best answer possible.
