    Boring from center out

    I spent a good amount of time figuring this out a few years ago, but then I've never had to use it again, so I forgot. Its one of those things that you have to try different combinations of settings until it does what you want. Lucky me that this forum exist.

    Boring from center out

    Is it possible to rough bore by having MC cut from the center out feeding on X, and having the step over on Z? I hope that makes sense. I remember doing it back in the X5 days, but I haven't been able to replicate it. It would help us a lot sometimes.

    Haas 617 alarm missing adress code

    Milling ops are fine, in fact the following op is a peck drill and it works fine.

    Haas 617 alarm missing adress code

    That was a mistake, forgot to change it on the operation, but it also happens on spot drilling

    Haas 617 alarm missing adress code

    Ive tried all of this and still giving me the alarm. It basically means that we cant drill, and we tried It on the VF4 and VF2, same problem. I've contacted my MC distributor and they said everything Is fine with the code. Next move is to get in touch with Haas. Its weird because it has only been happening for about a month, no problems before. Ive even tried 2 different posts. And Ive been on 2020 since the beta, and its just happens now. Thanks for all the help
  8. We have a VF4SS here that occasionally will give as a 617 alarm(missing address code). Cant figure out the problem. N4 T2 M6 ( 1/4 SPOTDRILL | TOOL2 | D2 | H2 | dia.25 ) G0 G90 G54 X0. Y.47 S1200 M3 G43 H2 Z.1 /M8 G99 G83 Z-.075 R.1 Q.1 F2. G80 M5 G91 G28 Z0. M9 M01 That's the code that triggered the alarm the last time. Something on the G99 line triggers it. It doesn't happen all the time though...

    Creating curves from solids

    That's easier than I thought it would be! I'm surprised it took me this long to find out about it. Thanks everyone!
  10. Is there a way to draw a line along a section of a solid and having mastercam create the curve on that spot, like slicing it? The way I do it now is by cutting the solid, creating a curve on the edge and then going into the solids manager and deleting the trim, then regenerating the solid. Sometimes Ill copy the solid to another level too. I hope my question makes sense.

    NEW PC 2020 Very slow especially Simulate.

    Try turning off hardware acceleration
  13. The problem I run into a lot these days is that you have programmers that were not machinist first, so they don't understand all the stuff you're describing. They never learn how tools actually cut and they don't see the tool deflection, amongst other things.
  14. Wrong toolpath. It looks like you're making molds and that's where your cores go. At my previous job the other programmer used scallop the same way you're doing it, and it WILL look like poop. You can use flowline, or what's better in my experience, 2d swept.
