4 axis wire


Recommended Posts

This is usually straightforward, you just need to chain top and bottom wire path. Just pay attention to synchronization as any ruled surface creation. I guess you already got it but you also need a power Mastercam tech file for your machine definition.

Im farely new to Wire EDM and there is this job that requires 4 axis programming. Im not really sure how to start programming it. Can anyone help?

Most important thing in 4 axis is to make sue your planes are correct. Machine need to know where bottom plane is in relation to table, and distance from table to top of part.

Also like Dave said you need to sync it in Mastercam, or at least you used to. I dont use it anymore. If you sync by entity i means you have the same number in top as in bottom. If not you need to create branch lines connecting them and sync by branch.
