'Use Stock'???

Recommended Posts

Can any one (I'm sure someone can) shed some light on this, the 'Use Stock' option please?
As in, where, when and how to use it - if at all!?

TIA.

Think about "Remachining"

That's typically where a user would use stock...

another place is if you're starting with a casting and only need to machine certain areas. Defining your rough casting as stock can help in that situation.

There are others as well I am quite sure.

Thanks for the reply.

So typically when using the Stock Model?

Yeah that's certainly one way to use it.

In this case stock is used to drive Linking in drill toolpaths

Define some stock on the Stock page, then check out the linking page

Hi and thanks for the reply.

I have set my stock as a 3D bounding box to the part I have, then checked the Use Stock box, set the perameters to 'Stock Setup' and 'Both', this in turn sets my linking to Incremental, but all the posted figures are then incorrect.  We have two milling controllers I have to deal with here, Heidenhain (various models) and Fanuc, I get good code from the Fanuc, but bad from the Heidenhain and have been told that the Heidenhain post hasn't and isn't set up for this feature?

Cheers.

Updated!

My reseller has supplied an updated post with lots of magical bits in that now can utilise the stock 😎 
This will be so much easier and quicker to get the holes etc.. done.

Ta all.

Why it is important to have a good relationship with your dealer and stay current with posts and other things.
