    CAT 50 to MT6 tool holder

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Morse-Taper-6-Drill-Mill-Tool-Holder-11-Extension-CAT-50-Taper-Shank-MT6-6MT-/173901884194 Edit, one of the views has at least a piece of part number.
  2. Can Mastercam run multiple instances with a nethasp connection?
  3. Use "Analyze Chain" to make sure your chain is closed.

    Angled slots

    We get part revisions quite often and changing out models is less cumbersome if they're less/not integrated with the tool paths.

    Deburring Endmill

    Along with the above tools we use Abrasive brushes for deburring parts like that. We've just started using Sunburst for our manual deburring with great results. We haven't yet put them on CNC but I'm sure they will find their place in due time.

    I could use some help.

    We have a good reseller.

    Selecting the Post Processor

    So "Verified Members" mean nothing. So I could theoretically could be a pirate.

    Selecting the Post Processor

    He is being shown as "Verified Members". Is this something that he can manipulate?

    automatically post out high speed machining codes?

    I use misc integers on most of my dynamic milling operations. This might have something to do with your dynamic milling issue. Pre-version 2018 you could do all of the text work much more efficiently inside the post. Now with XML sadly it's more efficient to do it through the machine def - control def. I understand because of language varieties this makes life easier for MC but it makes more work for the customer no matter what language is being used.
  10. Can you tie a condition to mi$, mr$, canned text, a drill parameter or custom drill parameters? Edit: Nevermind, I missed that or already doing that. Try adding a condition that will reinitialize it until your done with the probing. I'm done for the weekend and I don't have my post at home. Try searching here for pmachine and you will see a different example but it will show the process.

    mic 6

    Our instrument assemblers used to strip threads often when we used cut taps. The roll taps made a big difference.

    mic 6

    Mic 6 is a cast aluminum material so a cut thread will have less holding pressure than with wrought/ extruded material. Depending on the thread usage you may want to roll tap to get the increased holding pressure.

    The post debugger will either give you the post line number for each block (F7) or give you a post line for each variable on each block (F5) but if you don't know how the post operates or how to edit what you need then the debugger will do you little good. Depending on your answer you will have what you need or may want to call your reseller to see if they have a post class and/or have them fix your post as needed. You can also search this site for answers or post questions in the post forum.

    Change tool number without changing speeds and feeds

    You can have as many speed and feed versions of the same tool as you want. Copy the original tool, adjust speeds and feeds as needed then save the tool with either the changed feed/speed or as what process that tool is created for.
