Y-Axis parting in MT Environment

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to do Y-Axis parting/cutoff in the MT environment?  I'm thinking I am going to have to do it with a manual entry sub program.  Could get messy.

I've tested Y axis parting on an Okuma U3000 (not using Mastercam though).

This method of parting works really well, but unfortunately, there is no CSS on the Y axis, without an Okuma software hack.

We've set this up in a few of our posts as a Misc. Value.  It is not supported by Mastercam yet.  You will probably have to do it as a manual entry in MT for the time being.  Works really well though and its very impressive to see it in action.
