  1. This also happened to me a few years back . I cut the tool at its very base with a huge angle grinder and was able to reach the tube and screw it out of the holder. It was a DMG DMU 60 with a 24 000 spindle. The service guy that cam to see this quoted me 2 months waiting time and removing all the spindle from the back , my cutting lasted 15 min and he took pics of huge sparks flying from a grinder as if I was crazy or smthg :) .

  2. I would say that its the coordinate system that has moved not the part. At least when it comes to 2022 and 2023, it happens very often. luckily locking the plane stops the earthquakes. i have never seen the parts move . What mcam version? Gracjan
  3. i think you need to tell the machine somehow where the two rotary axes are ( vectors and coordinates.) Gracjan
  4. there are conversion kits for floppy discs to USB. I have seen several old injection machines converted like this. https://www.ebay.com/itm/164239141351?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200818143230%26meid%3D898923ca435e4eca93a5ec583be52c4a%26pid%3D101224%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D363050570422%26itm%3D164239141351%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDefaultOrganicWeb&_trksid=p2047675.c101224.m-1 Gracjan
  5. I once had to make a few grooves 1.6 mm wide and 20 mm deep. I created a surface in the middle of the groove and created a toolpath where the tool is going like a sewing machine some 2000 mm up and down and a increment horizontal move of 0.05 mm. I could have EDMed it , but the manual polishing after the burn made me mill . the grooves were altogether 1.5 meters long in 0.5 meter chunks. The material was of course steel ,HRC 33. I think only 3 or 4 end mills were used. Gracjan .
  6. I got two out of the three profiles working in 2022 but it took me about 20 minutes to figure it out and also after a while I lost the second profile. In 2021 its almost effortless... Gracjan qc has been notified Gracjan
  7. if two solids are added together using the Boolean Common end up with a result , that means the two solids clash . Gracjan
  8. Black background is the easiest on the eyes and uses the least energy as there are no pixels lit up,IMHO. I have setup an icon to instantly change to the gradient background, but I have never used it. The gradient background is more futuristic, but I don't live in Hollywood Gracjan
  9. in 2022 you can machine the text without having to break the text into lines. This means you just write a new text, regen and machine. Gracjan
  10. One of the best graphic tests for a 2d chain is the ability to extrude a solid. If you have several of them on the screen , you could window chain them the chains that don't give you a proper solid are the ones that have problems. Another giveaway is the curve you choose to start a chain. If the chain ends up starting off of another cure , you have found your culprit. Gracjan
  11. ill try to answer you today. Gracjan
