    Using G41.2

    Thanks for that Colin, I will look into moving over to wear and using G10 to do so . What are the advantages of using wear . No offense taken I respect your feedback and just want to improve.

    Using G41.2

    I am not 100 percent sure about the mazatrol/eia settings but we use the actual diameter and then change that to a smaller size to get it to go bigger on internal features. SIMULATE backplot was on and it still does that . If I was going to use wear I would manually put in an m00 and tall them to make sure actual diameter is zero and use actual dia. comp to get to size. most operators just know how we normally do it.

    Using G41.2

    Hi guys, you are correct it may be that we just don't have that in our post. I have been programming this machine for years but only diving into the full 5 axis more that I have ben programming full time. I haven't had issues with this post too much but I'm sure I need post refinement. we do use g68.2 on our head table machine (VTC800). the multiaxis threadmill in drill (with control comp gives me the result below.- we always use comp to avoid changing and having operators input the wrong diameter) I was only able to get it to work by creating a plane an then using a 3 axis output and then transforming it . I am trying to find out whether this is a Mastercam issue or a post issue I need Inhouse solutions to modify my post. I don't see a D value and it sees to cancel at the wrong place. Any knowlegable input is greatly appreciated!!

    Using G41.2

    I used drill-5axis threadmill and tried to output with control comp. It shows the tool arcing to the middle of the cutter on the edge of the hole. I coukdnt get control comp to work. Is thread milling with 5 axis output a no-no?

    Using G41.2

    Hello, can anyone give me some sample code using g41.2? Is it not nessesary to hae a D value in a g41.2 line or do i need to fix the post?
  8. Good day everyone, Recently we have been discussing going to Inches per revolution for everything. Being a primarily Mazak shop the mazatrol always has this. When using a software like mastercam there is a misc. Value that will convert all the feeds. Does anyone know of any negative aspects to this. Besides confusing shop staff.

    Why have duplicate tools when using transform?

    Originally a few years ago creating a duplicate tool was inhouse solutions(our reseller) answer to the problem. Now we use transform a lot and often create copied tools with the same tool number. Creating tool lists or set up sheets using active reporting or Varco set-up sheets becomes cluttered and confusing. There's got to be a solution for not duplicating tools

    ISCAR endmills

    We use kennametal end mills the most and they are great , we've used imco,harvey iscar, emuge , osg, sandvik, and hanita. We like kennametal the best for a we range of selection , cheaper than that of high end with reliable performance , osg comes in a close second for the same reasons as well as their website and catalogues are really user friendly.

    What's the best coolant?

    We moved over from fuchs to Ometa . Its much cleaner and the parts and tools come out with almost no residue at all.
  15. i would like to do somthing as simple as use a 1 " insert endmill to plunge out a slot. I see the plunge mill in surface rough but what if i dont have a surface is it possible to select a line and tell it to plunge along that line and specify the stepover?
