  1. Thanks for all the thoughts, it's appreciated!
  2. You're right, when using IGF, the machine is down. Apparently they have a PC version of IGF but I believe it was pricey. A permanent source file would definitely be nice since we're running both Okuma and Mazak Lathes. Right now I use Mastercam Mill to generate some code for more difficult parts and then I just insert it into my IGF program. It would be better to have the lathe module and a post for it. The easy parts could still be done with IGF. Good points to consider, especially the blending.
  3. We already have 5 seats of level 3 mill, so that part wouldn't be a problem, I was just curious to see if anyone knew if it had a significant advantage over using conversational.
  4. Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me if it's worth getting Mastercam lathe for an Okuma LB3000 EXII MYW over using IGF? Thanks.
  5. I can't keep up with all the responses guys, one at a time please, haha!
  6. I'm wondering if anyone out there has a program for pushing to a stop on an Okuma LB3000 EXII using a LNS QLS 80 S2?
  7. Thanks a lot for the pdf! I just saw it now and it's extremely informative. I sure wish our local AE had information like that! Much appreciated!
  8. Great advice Doug, thanks! I didn't know that Mid-Auto Manual would work for that. That will be helpful.
  9. I appreciate your help guys. Have a great day!
  10. I would like that but their applications guy is the only one in the area and he hasn't even used a sub spindle Okuma before.
  11. Exactly. It's a new machine and I want to set it up so that it's fairly easy to run. The "master tool" seems weird. Yes, it has a tool eye. On the subspindle side, I can't use the tool eye because of the length of the tools.
  12. The guy the dealer sent out said that you have to create a master tool. Basically, he wants us to take our finish turning tool and calibrate it so that the z will be zero when touched off. All tools touched off after that will reference off of that tool.
  13. Good morning, I'm not a fan of having to create a "Master Tool" for the LB 3000 EXII MWY. Maybe it's because I've never seen anyone explain it well. Even our trainer was stumbling through it. Does anyone have a detailed, step by step list on how to create one properly? Thanks.

    I had that switch on before I posted my question but it wouldn't allow me to go past the stroke limits. I was thinking that maybe it only lets you come back from a crash etc. when it's traveled past the limits?
