    Backfacing Operations

    I'll be honest, I don't even know where to post that. I know that most guys on here have a in-depth knowledge of Mastercam, but I never got that kind of training or have messed around with it. If I was more knowledgeable, I'm sure I could do something with this, but at this point I'm not there. Thanks though.

    Backfacing Operations

    I think what I'm going to do is create a custom cycle by just authoring the G&M code and inserting it as a subroutine. That way the program will pull up to the location, then execute the subroutine. It's not doing anything crazy, just a few feed moves, a rapid, dwell, a stop, etc. I'll have to look into the spindle stopping after the M00, that could be an issue and most likely will be.
  4. Hey guys, Got a question about backfacing operations. Basically I got a tool that rapids in to M00 (requires a head to be placed on it), machines - backwards - the spotface to depth, and will need to rapid down (again M00 for tool removal), and rapids out. Maybe a canned cycle? Definitely open to suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    DX-32 Post Processor

    Thanks for the responses guys. I downloaded the post for a friend of mine, the only reason I'm asking about the G54 is because his operator is asking for it. I personally am not on site, but I'll ask more. I automatically assumed that the machine utilized a standard G54 offset - especially when the operator is asking for it. Let me update this thread. But the notes on the tooling operations, surely that should be able to post out.

    DX-32 Post Processor

  7. OK, got a Bridgeport DX-32 post processor off of the MC website. Post is pretty decent but it is met with some errors: 1) Post will not post out toolpath messages - which is actually more helpful now that I cannot post them. 2) Post will not post out a G54 offset. Much thanks in advance.

    Gotcha. Yeah, we have a maintenance license. I have the files he was referring. Just needed to know how to navigate that.

    I've linked my account. Didn't understand what you meant by maintenance. However, still cannot find.

    Maintenance? Where do I modify that?

    I cannot seem to access this... Any reason why?
  13. Got a question... And I'm not asking for a post because I know that is sacrilegious on here. I've got a Bridgeport DX32 that I picked up. I'm not a business, just looking to do some machining. The DX32 controller is old, and I wouldn't believe that it is even supported in MC 2018. Is the only way to get one of these through In-House? Or is there a default DX32 post (like that used to be offered in older versions of MC)? Just want to pick the minds of the vets on here.
