    MC 2018 Wire ---- Why is this so hard?

    I'm lost as to what you want to accomplish. For this wire contour, whats with the no comp and no lead in and out. Seems if your power library is correct, you just set your parameters for number of passes, comp and it should work and post out your offsets and power numbers Mits use. Mits and Agies are a PIA .

    I prefer using 4 axis or taper most of the time as you can control the size of the top and bottom of your part from the table surface.

    MC 2018 Wire ---- Why is this so hard?

    Best way to not have any lead in or out comp is just hand edit G41,G42 to G40. You will still need a thread and cut point but it wont call up comp. I can't make out your drawing. What make WEDM are you using? Some wires allow you to thread on an angle if its not too severe, or you can use single block- dry run to set your wire to a programmed angle and let it go from there. Also, you can save your parameters to any thing you wish. Like 2 pass,4 pass, taper, 4 axis and have all the parameters already set. It's been awhile since I have used MC WIRE.

    I have CPM 10V. Not too bad soft.

    Racking my brain as to why you would want to do it that way.

    I could see much difference in that flat area so my file is the tapered part. With that much angle make sure you use half hard wire and reduce your tension and use big flush cups.

    There is some screwy stuff I think in that file. Here is another DXF file that I think is correct. Only thing is that its a cross section of the part where the bottom is at Z.750 and the top is at Z1.500. It doesn't matter as long as you have your program plane set at Z.750 and whatever the Charmilles needs for the top at Z1.500. The angle is the same. I only gave you the wireframe. Make sure that the radius is what you want. I used .172015 R. Esprit was creating an isometric radius because it was interpreting 2 radius. One was something like .154 R. If that is the one you need then filet it and create new branch lines connecting them. 10-1245-134-ins WIRE 4 TH AXIS OLD VER.dxf

    I cant say for certain but maybe the taper is too steep maybe?

    I don't know if Mastercam wire has this or not. It saves time from creating wireframes if the solid is accurate.

    Its hard for me to go back and use MCWire after using Esprit. Messes with my head. In Esprit all I do is select those faces and wire path it.

    10-1245-134-ins WIRE 4 TH AXIS OLD VER.step I just split the solid at z.75 and z1.5 and extended the top to to clear the part. As long as you set your planes right on the wire the shape is the same. I created branch points and thats how you should sync it.
