  1. Fillet Chain R=0.0001, While technically not sharp will undo the larger rads
  2. Set the Roughing Angle +/-180 Degrees to what it currently is (Found on Pocket Parameters Tab).

    Heidenhain Hail Mary

    No problem, likely my rushed wording. Yes I've tried that, was a suggestion I recieved from a friend who is familiar with the Hedenheian.
  4. I have an issue with a Heidenhain control and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Control is Cerca 2004 TNC426/430 Nutating Head Machine, I'm going though some post issues with the customer, and 5 axis programming support. We have sorted out that the control does not do TCP (M128) in Cycle 19, only Spatial plane, I was doing some test code on the control too check formatting for the post update. Issue is Every time I call a Cycle 19, or Plane Reset STAY, I'm getting an "Angle Cannot Be Calculated" error, I'm pretty much getting this error all the time. Even tempting a tool change gives this error. Started when I did a Plane Reset Stay before an M128. What I feel is happening based on the behavior of the machine is somehow the Kinematics is twisted compared to head or something, I've Restated the machine with the head vertical, and all the numbers display 0's (B,C). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Cimco DNC transfer tab lost

    Check your Cimco shortcut, your likely using Cimco basic attached to Mastercam Sim. If opening .nc file directly check windows default association (prolly looking at MCX cimco) If launching direct from Mastercam check your Start tab and make sure "CIMCOedit" is selected not "CIMCO"

    Multiaxis vs Curve/Drill 5 axis

    Unless thigs have changed with how you can bundle mcx license. Curve5 is an addon that can run on a mill1 seat, its actually pretty powerful if you know what your doing but by no means a replacment for full Multi. Full Multi requires mill3, the largest portion of the price increase is the added full 3d package. If you buy curve 5 now there is no reduced upgrade price as curve5 is considered an addon, and full multi is a software upgrade.

    Post Processing: Office Hours Sessions

    None of those proposed times are office hours Colin
  8. G53.5 is used to call WPC in eia, not 100% if it will work on M+ generation.
  9. Why does it have to be rs232? They make ethernet to serial adaptors but they are ment for connection to older machines technically it could be wired in but the machine would have no idea what to do with the signal. Not sure anyone makes a device backwards compatible. Ive hoooked up hundreds of machines and typically this restriction is an IT issue (they dont want the machine in the network) there are options uisng ethernet and ot being on the network.

    laptop recommendation

    As a contract programmer I run my business from a dell precision 7710, Fantastic laptop and I've had zero issues with it. Handles everything I throw at it. That being said its close to 12lbs with the brick. Not so bad if im travelling with my own vehical and am only one shop ina day, but often im at multiple customers and when I fly its unruly to lug around, near impossible to use on a flight. Not that I fly often for work but its not exactly portable. I got to lay my hands on MSI new WS63 work series when I was at my local PC store yesterday, and man is it nice. Other than the less than ideal trackpad (minor issue as I pack a mouse) thin, light, beautiful speced with 8 gen i7, and P3200 gpu. My plan for next upgrade is a WS tower for home/shop. And eventually replace my Dell with a slimmer more travel friendly 15". I do the bulk of my contract stuff pre programmed and only make minor changes onsite.

    Filezilla to Fanuc

    Anyone had success with Filezilla FTP server to Fanuc recently? I've done a bunch of machines over the years and its pretty simple peer to peer networking and a few settings on the server side. With the newer Filezilla server I cant for the life of me make anything connect. TLS settings i'm sure is the culprit as I cant seem to be able to configure Plain FTP anymore in Filezilla. TIA

    Repeat without transformation

    Use a macro variable and to jump over those one time FMS commands in you G65 call program. Or make A B as subs and have one time commands in "main" than run a or b, or a and b based on operator requirments. Could also use basic logig with a variable set to 0 or 1(on/off) A hundred diffrent ways to this safely and with check conditions

    Stock Model ( all previous operations )

    You can do this.. just select all operations. I like the fact that i can pick and choose, files with well over 200-300 operations and any PC would stall out if i couldn't control stock models throught the process.
