  1. Hello everyone, I just want to cheer you guys over the holiday and I have found some previous programmers of which turned off the CLEARANCE and RETRACT planes. I got so mad about it and I have written a warning because it is very DANGEROUS for HORIZONTAL and 5 AXIS... =======================

    Machine Simulation

    Thank you, I just emailed you.
  3. Hello everyone, I already had the solid models for my Horizontal machine + index attached to it. I would like to look for someone who can create Machine Simulation files for me to simulate. I did ask my dealer but he stated that IMPOSIBILITY company demand my company to purchase post + machine simulation. However, we already have post for it. The post itself it costs us $2,500 we can't just purchase another post + machine simulation. If any of you guys know where I can get only machine simulation service company, let me know so I can request my company to purchase from. Deal's debate was the machine simulation is tight to the post and that is not very convince able. I used to use the machine only without the post, it worked fine. When on the machine simulation crash, it means outside crash as well. I think nowadays dealers are must making harder for end users to get what they need not what dealer want (more money charge). ps: I already had the solid models, all I need is a person to create the machine simulation. Thanks
  4. I have tried like the way you've done it and it ended up with I have to type every single time with a different part number, job, etc... However, there is a way to make it AUTOMATICALLY of which pulling the data from SOURCE. Here how I made it work as below. PRORAM NAME AS "NC FILE" MACHINE GROUP COMMENT AS "CUSTOMER NAME" SOURCE FILE AS "PART NUMBER" I have been working on this templates several years (15 minutes per day) and now this is finally completed as really want. I think it may take you up to six months to if you have your own layout and design it through ACTIVE REPORT.
  5. Hello everyone, I just got hired into a company who is previously bought a used UMC750 METRIC and it also came with METRIC POST in POST as well. Now they have called SELWAY to convert the METRIC to ENGLISH. I would like to convert from their current post processor from METRIC to ENGLISH as well. Is there a quick way or switch from the MACHINE DIFINITION to ENABLE the ENGLISH and DISABLE the METRIC? Thank you.
  6. Guess what? I've got this done by paying MasterCam $300 just to make my DEEPEST Z DEPTH shows up. I think it worth it. Just send to MASTERCAM, they'll do it for you.

    Free Active Reports Setup Sheet

    I have my own too. I am trying to steel some of your ideas and putting on mine of which already existed. Thanks for the share.
  8. To be honest, Japanese are very smart why they make such a so DUMP control like MAZAK? The machine is an amazing thing to use it. For the control, it is TRASH!!!!!
  9. Hello support, I am using a HORIZONTAL of which contains the "B" rotation and I would like to make an alarm such as: IF LAST ROTATION <> CURRENT ROTATION & PREVIOUS T$ = CURRENT T$ & RETRACT FLAG = 0 then show alarm....

  14. Hello admin, I guess my hobby is reading all the threads from you guys while I am on break and I have downloaded the mobile app as "MASTERCAM COMMUNITY", does not allow me to view because it said I am a "NON CUSTOMER". I have registered the "SIM" number in my profile and I wonder what would I need to do to make it work. Thank you

    Probing Routine - Renishaw/Haas

    Hello Colin, I was able to do in HAAS and now I would like to do in MAZAK. However, the sub program number as "P9820" of which STOCK ALLOWANCE you just old me was not found in MAZAK. Do you where I can get a document of all the sub program call out for G65 as MAZAK? ps: The control is fairly new, I think it is made in 2015 proximately.
