    Fanuc 30i single block

    Does anyone know if there is a parameter I can change so that single block will also step through comments? Thanks

    Safe tool change position on a Haas Mill

    You could do it like they show in the Haas video, but include a Macro Variable before the move to a safe position. For example, if #500=1. then it will go to safe position before tool change, if #550=0, then there is no safe position move.

    shared mcam and my mcam on dropbox...

    This is exactly how I did it when I was contract programming.

    SOLID

    I would use "modify Feature" to remove the rads, then push the face through. Add the rads back in after.

    Cycle Definition text files

    Putting your shared Mcam folder on a network drive is a good place to start, so that all the associated files only "live" in one place

    Circle Interpolation Problem

    I am experiencing a strange issue here. The machine is new to us, a Doosan DNM6700 with rotary table. When trying to do a G03 move, I get the alarm "PS0020, "OVER TOLERANCE OF RADIUS". i understand what this alarm means, and to my eye, the code checks out fine. In the process of trying to figure out what is causing the problem, I switched Parameter 3410 (Tolerance of Arc Radius). to .250 (initially it was .0039) then when ruining the code, during the G03 moves, I get no alarm, but the A axis is moving along with X & Y during the G03 move, despite no A move being commanded. What is going on here?!? Here is the code that is causing the problem: N110 G91 G28 Z0. N120 (ROUGH BORES A180) N130 (COMPENSATION TYPE - WEAR COMP) N140 T9 M06 (3/8 4FL ENDMILL) N150 (MAX - Z4.) N160 (MIN - Z1.5) N170 M11 (UNLOCK) N180 G00 G17 G90 G54.1 P48 A180. N190 M10 (LOCK) N200 S4700 M03 N210 X24.0117 Y-1.9844 N220 G43 H9 Z4. M07 N230 Z2.05 N240 G94 G01 Z1.8333 F25.

    WCS Font on screen

    Go in your Nvidia Control Panel, and under "adjust desktop color settings", set "content type reported to the display" to "desktop programs" See if that fixes it.

    eww gross, dog leg rapids

    I'm not sure about the new machines, but if you change this on older machines, it will mess up the way drill cycles work.
