  1. Maybe this will help
  2. Can you fixture your part so that the upper surface of your part will be perpendicular with Z axis?

    Right angle head spindle direction

    On Sinumerik the machine kinematic is irrelevant. Just register correctly the tool so the controller can compensate it have your succession of codes correctly and with same code will work on all of them regardless of kinematic...u can even do 5x On a fanuc u can do it but not as easy and elegantly.. N1701 (RAD 1 WIN 1-COMPUTER COMP/DIA.5) #601=10. #602=#600*COS[#601](X SHIFT) #603=#600*SIN[#601](Z SHIFT) G65P9999C180.X-#602Z#603U54.D55.(G55) G55G90G00A0B0C0 G43.4H144D144Z8. X-38.5526Y12.

    You know that if you correctly register your tool in the controller you don't need to re-post at any tool change.

    Right angle head spindle direction

    What you will do if you get a different angle head with a different length, or if your tool tip distance to spindle center will change?
  8. Good call on controller. On a higher end machine having fanuc, is like installing win95 on a latest gen computer.
  9. How about here in North America we declare imperial standard obsolete, and we stop using it, because the majority of people on this planet use a better and more simple system called metric.

    In House IKE Post Processors

    What is this kinematic awareness exactly...can someone explain this more in details what it does?.....just asking cuz for example I have all my posts set-up to give me vectors instead of the direct machine axes. That way I have one post for all Fanuc machines one for Sinumerik and one for Heidenhain....and they all support different machine kinematics ..I don't understand why one will wanna buy posts for every individual kinematic.

    Faster Programming 5 axis.

    All of you... watch and learn
  12. Grievous

    Full 4 axis programming you need to do some 4x simultaneous or just index positioning?

    Rigth angle head and holes on circle

    From what I see here you will need a small modification in your post to have the coordinates posted in polar instead of cartesian..assuming your ring is in the center of rotation of your rotary

    Machine Simulation false collisions

    My question stands..Why do you need to check the tool against the workpiece?

    Machine Simulation false collisions

    Question: Do you need to check for collision of tool against the workpiece ? Why? .......simulation tolerances??
