Wire Post

Recommended Posts

I am a little out of my element on this one I am helping our wire guy hoping to stream line his work flow and post a bit. I need to capture the Wire Over burn setting from the Wire/Power setting page in the Mastercam ops. It would be great if I could output it to the nc file. Not sure where to start.

I know nothing about wire, but the post documentation shows it's Parameter 1013 bit 4 - "overburn$"

There's another section that mentions Parameter 20019 bit 5 - "overburn$"

I don't have a wire post to try it out, but i'd try just pulling 'overburn$' 

Hope that helps. 

Good luck

Thanks for the input, I tried pulling those from the pparameter section, no joy.

Thanks again anyways.

Did you try using the system variable or did you try pulling the parameter using pparameter$ and a line similar to this;

if prmcode$ = 1013, temp1 = rpar(sparameter$, 4)

Your example is how I tried it and got nothing. Running X7 if it matters.

"Parameters", by definition, start at 10,000.

I suspect you are looking at "Gcode 1013", and the "bit #", is really just the 4th value on the Parameter line. You shouldn't need to "pull this" from the Parameters. All you should need is the "overburn$' variable.
