    Custom Tool Geometry issues

    could it be the arc center points which are showing where the fillets are?
  4. THEN YOUR ORIGINAL MACRO IS ALLMOST RIGHT JUST THE X START POINT AND THE Z DEPTH NEED CHANGED G65 P9811 X-2.9 S1 WILL SET G54 X ZERO +2.9 FROM THE SURFACE THE PROBE TOUCHS OFF T20 M6 (select tool probe) G54 x-3.2 Y0 G43 H20 Z3.5 G65 P9832 G65 P9810 Z.5 G65 P9810 Z-.5 F10. G65 P9811 X-2.9 S1 G65 P9810 Z3.5 G65 P9833
  5. in that case this will get you what you want T20 M6 (select tool probe) G54 x-3.2 Y0 G43 H20 Z3.5 G65 P9832 G65 P9810 Z.5 F10. (PROTECTED MOVE ABOVE MATERIAL) G65 P9812 X5.8 R.2 Z-.5 S1 (PROBE AND SET X DATUM IN CENTER OF YOUR MATERIAL) G65 P9810 Z3.5 G65 P9833 THIS CYCLE PROBES BOTH SIDES IN X AND SETS THE DATUM IN THE CENTER OF THE MATERIAL
  6. where are your datums set from ,assuming your datums are x & y center of your part & z bottom face. T20 M6 (select tool probe) G54 x-3.2 Y0 G43 H20 Z3.5 G65 P9832 G65 P9810 Z1.5 G65 P9811 X-2.9 S1 G65 P9810 Z3.5 G65 P9833

    anyone know why this failed? simple little prog

    edit change the g40 line from x1. y.5 to x1. y1. i don't think the position you are leaving the tool in before the g40 line allows for any movement to cancel the cutter comp you would normally comp on at 90 degrees to the first x feed move and comp off 90 degrees to the last x feed move as it stands any value other than zero in the t1 diameter offset would force a -90 degree move when you try to comp off
