  6. Hello everyone, I've been chasing my tail when using TRANSFORM TOOLPATH, TRANSLATE. I have 2 separate parts and want to pickup G54 and G55 for my own locations. However, somehow I got the G-CODES lumps 2 parts into 1 work offset. Would you guys please help me out and tell me what i've done wrong? ps: I am using the DEFAULT post to show the issue.

  7. Colin, How did you define "mi1S"? Thanks
  8. Colin, I went over the payments, I know that I learned from you about 3-4 hours per day and some 6 hours. We have nearly 30 payments.
  9. I have learned ONE ON ONE thru Colin, around 30 executive days (every Saturday, 3-4 hours a day). It's a bit of expensive but worth it. Now, I can mostly write any 3/4 Axis post, including lathe and mill turn. If you guys thinking to get learned about post thoroughly then learn from this man. Timing and money a bit of tough but if you are patient enough, you'll get all of his head into yours. It's just matter of time and willingness.
  10. Thank you for telling a true story. I don't tend complain things all I ask is help when I need help. People in here asking me why this why that, today you have answered of all the questions of those who asked me for years.
  11. I know it sounds stupidity but that is most of small shops in SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA are dealing with. BIG SHOPS, their post sometimes not as perfect as we expected but at least it's up to 95% or the daily work.
  12. Some of the CRAZY POST that they downloaded somewhere and not buying through professionally, it's just a MESS such as. Post out high speed toolpath without COOLANT, TAP CODEs were like OUT OF WACK, there are a lot of things that I can say when I work some work environment as everyone must have their perfect post and company's? Oh, no.. it takes for every to do by hand editing.
  13. Hello Collin, I really appreciated that you put some good words on me. I've been knowing you since 2015 and that is how my problem of post solved (most of the time). As you already know we are all CNC programmers and the owner just doesn't care about what we have done, they need the part on their desk the end of the day, PERIOD!!!! Some of my jobs that they gave a BAD POST PROCESSOR and expected me to hand editing nearly every single tool. California is super expensive as you already knew. 3 beds 1 bath = 1.2 million dollars that's mean the salary also have to pay more than other states. That is why the companies demand so much us. Not just knowing how to use MASTERCAM influence but also SOLIDWORKS. I am just lucky enough to know those 2 and using smoothly. Over the time, the work just demand us to self develop other software tools as well so we can compete to others. In California, if we don't step up, we are out of the game within a year or two. Sad but so true about, sometime I want to move out of state, guess what all my family are here. Either I get the job and keep up or getting fired by the next hire. ps: If the setup men cannot run the program that's the programmer's fault. I think that is how the way it works for everywhere though. Everything needs to be pictured, noted and attention to details as you see the bottom image of which my own setup sheet as well. Thank you Collin, S.Luong
  14. Hello CrazyMillMan, This is my very personal post, before I post anything out I always use mine to ensure everything is NO CRASH, COOLANT OFF, OR T1, H10, etc. After I see everything is OK then I use the company's post. It's just my PERSONAL CNC QC tool. Thank you for your comment CrazyMillMan, S.Luong
