    Need some advice milling deep slot

    Maybe .025 - .030 depth per pass. [email protected] Maybe. Hard to say without seeing it firsthand.

    Need some advice milling deep slot

    Do you have a wire EDM? I have done this in the past with a ramping contour toolpath. With a shallow pitch and full width of cut, the tool will be somewhat stabilized by cutting beyond center as you ramp down. A corner radius will help also, anything that puts the majority of the cutting force straight up the centerline of the tool will help. The biggest problem is getting chips out...

    I thought we weren't supposed to have politics in the Post Processor forum.

    FILE BEGINNING/END MARKER MISSING - ALARM

    I've seen this before. Where in Cimco it looks good, but if you open it in Microsoft Word, there are 3 or 4 goofy characters on the first line that are hidden (last line too). Try opening in Word and see if there is anything else there.

    FILE BEGINNING/END MARKER MISSING - ALARM

    Get rid of the blank line and look for spaces at the end of line which can be a problem.

    Fanuc d offset help

    Contact Fanuc. Probably cost quite a few bucks, but compared to a crash, money well spent.

    Renishaw probe multi axis alignment

    Once you've set your C axis, you can go in and take 2 circles at different depths of a known distance. Then use trigonometry to calculate the amount of A axis angle to move. Once moved, pick up your XYZ again.

    3 + 2 Automatic would probably be worth a shot.

    WORKING TOO HARD! :-(

    It's done in the control definition. Select the post from the dropdown. We have Productivity+ but I don't use it. Didn't make a whole lot of sense to add 1500 lines of code to the program and some dozen or more sub programs just to pick up an offset. I scrapped it and did it the old fashioned way that I've been doing it since V9. I use the Renishaw macros that are part of the probe install.

    Esprit 2020 to Mastercam 2022

    We had a post that Esprit was never able to fix (purchased post) they wanted to close the ticket after 6 months or so and re-open under a new ticket #. Maybe it didn't look good to have an open incident for that amount of time. It was a sales pitch. Like I said, it sounded great for about 2 seconds, and then the bs detector went off. My boss at the time, I think he fell for it.
