  1. Is it supposed to have a g91 in that line? That seems dangerous. Had cutter comp been deactivated from the previous path?
  2. H#518 on the matsuura. We have Camplete set to output the variable instead of tool number. That gets updated with the tool life
  3. I believe the output for data is there too
  4. You can do it in the tool manager from the main control. On our 850 with 60 tools I added 30 for a job. I go in unload the data for the tool I'm taking out and load in the data for the tool I'm putting in. Then put a tool tag on it. You can only load it into a free pot. I call up tool zero because if you unload the tool while it's in the spindle it won't recognize it untill after a tool change
  5. If your plan is to share them I would do a mastercam Library
  6. Can you use a system variable to warn in the program? Like if dia comp is greater than .005 issue alarm or program stop?
  7. G184 on the 840di Siemens
  8. A couple guys when they verify with a manual entry it opens and immediately closes Has anyone experienced this in 2023?
  9. What does the ptool_inpection look like? Personally i would copy some of the ptoolcng block so it re issued everything. This way if for some reason somebody goes to start the program from there it's going to have the right tool and the spindle.
  10. Did you do it in the tool change block? Don't do it in the null or pretract or prapidout
  11. There should be a post block labeled subsequent holes underneath the drill cycles
  12. It sounds like the spring pass is removing lots of spring
  13. You could try an asterisk In front of the sgplane *sgplane
  14. You really don't have a choice but to make a center cut. You can order a smaller one and do some multipasses and finish with the full size cutter
  15. I believe there is a tabs page in the contour toolpath
  16. We have 520 and 850s. They work well. Our yasda is the linear motor machine and it is super consistent
  17. You can right click edit and unlink which is what I did. That was the only time I've used that feature and picked the worst application for it
  18. I may have made relative planes. I will try to make a file but our internet is restricted now so I'll have to figure something out.
  19. I had a file in 2020 with 5 locked planes. When I opened it in 2023the planes were still locked but 160degrees off. I had to lock them because I had to modify my 5axis home for the dovetail fixtures we modified and it would keep reverting the planes. They also have this link symbol now.
  20. It's for turning cutter comp on in a z move. It doesn't stop the simulation Feed plane is .03 incremental and top of stock it .02 incremental
  21. When I do a circle Mill 5 axis I'm using a line I believe for orientation. Camplete posts out of g43 tilted work plane but it's turning cutter comp on on the z move for the helix. I have Track cutter comp mode in the files setting on Camplete checked. This is giving me a warning a cam fleet but a simulates fine I haven't actually run it on the machine yet. Has anyone had this before?
  22. I asked why we don't use mastercam wire, pcfabcut has the technology for each fanuc wire already loaded. It's different for each machine so you don't have to figure all that stuff out and load it into mastercam
  23. I believe it does exactly what you want. you can scroll thru the top of the post and it should have a description where they are declared
