    5 AXIS MACHINE PARAMETER QUESTION

    Thats what I am doing as we speak, so far so good. Vericut already does not have a problem with the post output. Kind of how we found it was an issue. Luckily both 5 axis paths required a big b axis move so at the machine after it ran the first path it immediately alarmed out on the second g43.4 when trying to rotate to the next position, because it would have had to rotate past the limits... Vericut gave us no warning of impending doom!
  2. The Machines are Mori NMV5000's maybe 30i controls but would really have to check them. My Question is about parameter 19754.5, currently the setting in this parameter requires you to return to CO, BO before calling a G43.4 and worse have to return to zeros when the next G43.4 is call elsewise the machine just considers it a zero where ever it is and will make a new rotation from that position. I think if I change this parameter I can utilize the functionality of our new post that does not return to zero's inbetween 5 axis toolpaths... Any body have any experience with this? I asked the Mori apps engineer and he said he was surprised the machine was even set up like this but was going investigate further.. That was weeks ago. Any advise is appreciated here...

    Threadmilling problem

    Carmex mini style. they have 3 threads on them all day every day. I never use taps anymore. They make a series specifically for hard materials. I still program it as a single style so that I get the complete helix.... They even have 3 in 1 threadmills no hole required although I would not recommend it for your application. The key is multipass on holes like this.. Hard maerial like that I would give it 3 passes with the last one being almost a spring pass. Also Harvey makes good tools but their techs are useless IMHO....
  4. WAI WHAT???? WHERE IS THIS CHOOK?

    Simulator Options Problem

    I have been having all kinds of simulation problems latley.... Even though I dont use simulation. When I have multiple files open with different machine defs. Seems like every time I go to verify something it tells me I have the wrong machine selected for simulation. So I change it to one that corresponds..... But then what ever other files are open also seem to change to that machine and then when I jump back and try to verify... bam same error.... Its really becoming a PITA and I wish I could just turn the simulation function off and only use verify....

    Gilo

    is this on verify or when trying to post?
  7. Did anyone try the fix with any success or are we just bashing each other now? I had that problem since 2019 and the above fix seems to have solved my problems. Knock on wood. But I am curious if it worked for anyone else?
  8. TRY GOING INTO YOUR MACHINE DEF, THEN GENERAL PARAMETERS, THEN CPLANE/TPLANE AND SWITCH IT TO NONE. MY PLANES USED TO MOVE ALL THE TIME AND SINCE I HAVE DONE THIS IT SEEMS TO HAVE DONE THE TRICK. KNOCK ON WOOD!

    Tricking Mastercam with Safety Zone

    A good engineer can design a functional part, A great engineer can make a highly functional part for cheaper! Simple things like radii that match available tool geometry and making surfaces flat and perpendicular where possible and not over constraining a parts tolerance all add up to money saved when it comes to manufacturing..... I hear in Europe they make engineers spend a few years on the floor before cutting them loose on the CAD system.... Quite possible the best idea ever!!!

    Tricking Mastercam with Safety Zone

    Im working on a few projects like that right now so I feel your pain.... What happened to the good old days where engineers took into consideration the manufacturing process when designing things... No Respect I tell you!

    Tricking Mastercam with Safety Zone

    Couldnt used Swarf? you can force feeds for rapids under the Utility drop down? or along curve, triangle mesh or anything newer. Curve is definitly a good tool but plenty of ways to skin a cat in mastercam

    Sorry hard to follow what you are talking about, but maybe try the manual edit function by right clicking on the toolpath and selection manual edit. Yes its alot of work but if everything else is dialed you can change those rapids to feed moves. If its a problem with the linking between toolpaths maybe a points path can give u feed moves inbetween... Again not sure exactly what you are doing but alot of times when I am done and looking to clean up a few the manual edit feature puts the finishing touches on a program that can be posted as long as you dont have to regenerate... Good Luck!
