    Toolpath for machining a fillet without a form tool?

    Probably younger guy, doesn't know how to program without surfaces. I started on MC 4, MSDOS based. Had to fire it up from the command line.

    Flowline or 2D swept. I still use 2d swept a lot , much cleaner tool motion, and more control as far as where it starts and ends.

    I always forget about boundaries, but I do use stock models. Luckily I don't make anything with a lot of operations at this job, as I do have experience with needing many stock models. Thank you Ron.

    Why is it that when I use Stock I cant use From Outside? There's got to be something I'm missing.

    Best programming method

    That's another option

    IF the cross section of the groove is important you can flowline it with a smaller ball endmill

    Tool break test

    You can do it right from the machine control. From the VPS probing menu. Once you tell the control what you want you hit F4 and it will ask you if you want on MDI, write a program or added to the current program.

    I used to have that problem all the time, I've broken several boring bars because id forget to add and exit move to the NC file. Until someone told to NEVER program lathe without stock. When you have stock MC adds the exit move all by itself.

    Do you have stock turned on?

    Plane information

    Yes, I try to do that. Sometimes I forget though, I need to do remember to do it every time. It gets complicated when I have a compound angle for subgate, that's why I would like it if it kept the angles. Thanks Ron!

    Plane information

    Does MC keep plane information? Like rotation?

    Planes origin jumping around

    Locking planes? That's a new one for me? How do I lock them?
  13. Often, if I set a plane off of a solid face and then I move the origin, the origin will jump back to its original(no pun intended) position. AM I the only one? AM I doing something wrong?
