Wire V6 posprocessor for AGIE CUT 100

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me find a suitable Mastercam Wire V6.0 postprocessor for AGIE CUT 100?

I tried mpwagie but the machine didn't recognise the generated code.

Thank You in advance!

Billy,

the file generated by Mastercam Wire V6.0 is

with a *.nci extension. I'm not the best of expert but that's what I see. After that I put the floppy disk with this file into the machine and she refuses to read it. This is the whole story.

You wrote >the file generated by Mastercam Wire V6.0 is with a *.nci extension.

That is the file you need to postprocess. Try NcUtils, postprocess, run that will generate the G code.

The G-code generated by mpwagie is in ASCII format and the machine AGIE CUT 100 wouldn't read it! Actually the floppy reads it by the CNC software doesn't recognise it - message 10 is displayed.

This sounds like it is one of the old Agie machines with no screen and the 7 segment display instead of a screen. This type of control needs the *.NC file in ISO instead of ASCII like you get it from the MPWAGIE Postprocessor. I converted the output from the MPWAGIE with an old DOS utility which I got from an Agie guy. There is also an old utility from CNC Software called AGCONV.EXE dated 11.June.1991 that should do the same, but I didn`t test this one. As far as I know there is also another way with MP to use a translation table, but I do not have a working one for this Agie type.

Ivailobg I mailed you both utilities I wrote about. Hope this helps.

Edit the post to turn on the output of ASCII character 26 at the end of the program.

escape : 1 # ESCAPE code at the end of the program, 0 = no, 1 = yes.

peof # End of file

if escape = one, 26

Thanks Robert!

AGCONV.EXE solved my problem!

I would share the file with anyone who has the same or similar problem.

Ivailo, 

Can you share the AGCONV.EXE? We also have an Agiecut 100 and had the same issue with the programs.

Does anyone check post dates? The OP posted this in 2000, and hasn't visited since.

Your chances of a response from them are pretty remote.
