    Programming G112 by hand??

    That should be no problem to do. I normally use wear comp, but you can use control or wear. Are you starting at the 3 O'clock position? Shoot me you email and ill send you a sample nc file on monday.

    Programming G112 by hand??

    Haas uses Y instead of a C address like FANUC. Haas also uses staight xy code. You also do not have to double x values. What year st30? The NGC did have a software update to addrss alarms being generated with programs close to centerline.

    I know i'm out of line for this question

    Select output options to get to the filtering page, also you have tolerance and toolpath corner % to play with.

    This is correct. I wish it wasn't so.

    Haas 617 alarm missing adress code

    I would delete your tool's comment and test. Just because the alarm stops one a particular line does not always mean it is in fact on that line. Also, with different versions of software on Haas machines through out the years, they all handle things a little differently.

    C-Axis Cut Chatter

    Does your machine support G112/G12.1 for polar coordinate interpolation?

    Printed Gcode

    At my old job most of the jobs that were castings became parts made from solid with modern toolpaths and multiaxis. Now there is still a place for castings. However, by using newer methods alot of parts that needed to be castings 10- 20 years ago, can now be 100 percent machined for much cheaper.

    3D Model Haas Tailstock for HRT310

    At one point I believe Haas made a standalone HRT-310 tailstock. Now it comes with a riser. Not sure if it is the same height as the HRT-210 or slightly taller. As the riser looks smaller than 3"
  10. What is your preference for programming a table/table 5 axis horizontal? Top/Top/Top is B0C0? like a vertical or Top/Front/Front is B0C0 like most program a horizontal?

    Cleaning tool holders

    You can get some pretty big ultrasonic cleaners off ebay for under 150 bucks that would fit most CAT 40 holders. I ordered one for doing parts post tumbling, never tried any of my tooling though.

    3+2 programming and tool changes

    This has been around for many years on a Haas(15+). It was just parameters using encoder counts to preposition to the location before a tool change. Much easier on a NGC though. Exact same functionality. You could also alias an M6 or do a combination of both. Most UMC post have a misc integer to not go to the "home position" during mid op rotations and also at the start/end of the operation. Postability, IHS, and I even believe the Mastercam Direct post also has a misc integer for it. Just have to make sure your retract plane is high enough when turned off.
