    Odd Okuma 5 axis toolpath

    So right click new plane resolved the issue, but it produce a plane that was identical to what I had already. Regardless I am happy its working. Our dealer hasn't got back to me and its been a few days so I think Covid-19 Is having an affect on our service(In in Albany Ny, I believe their in Rochester)

    Odd Okuma 5 axis toolpath

    I am not seeing a ton of flexibility to change anything in the the axis combo/spindle origin box. Fwiw I'm totally new to 5 axis turning, 5 axis milling on this thing has been awesome, but this is the first complex turning part I've tried to do over here.

    Odd Okuma 5 axis toolpath

    One group should be the top side. The other would be the Bottom, with a Lathe plane to coincide with each. When you refer to axis combos you mean cooradtinating the turning plane the correct way to coincide with your milling "top plane"? What baffles me is the ghosted turning ops(hidden by the window) post as you would expect and worked fine.

    Odd Okuma 5 axis toolpath

    Hello, I have run into an odd issue with my Okuma MU6300VL I am doing a pretty straight forward contour, the machine however is putting out XYZ info for each move, the backplot shows weird 3d Circular interpolationmoves and the code posting seems to be reflecting this action as well. You can see the funky toolpath in the attached JPG Any Ideas what could be causing this?

    Adding Coolant Event to Tree

    What a shame...Thanks Is there a way to default the Before,with,after to a specific setting? In the operational defaults page all I get is on or off for options when using x style coolant
  7. Hey Folks, I am running an Okuma and getting the post squared away. I am trying to add a coolant "event". However I can only do so if I disable backwards coolant compatibility. I would prefer NOT to run X style coolant because of constantly having to check the "before","with","after box". In My post I have gone through and defined Sm08_3 and Sm09_3, and added where appropriate. My basic question is this. How do I add a coolant event to utilize Sm08_3! Thanks, Dave W.

    Weird Tool Speeds and Feeds

    This is exactly my problem.... On every other Machine I have a post for, re-initializing works. It is not working on this post. What I told you in my first post is what I have saved in my library. Edit: The pics added should display what I am running into.

    Weird Tool Speeds and Feeds

    Hello Folks, Am having an Issue with a Post for An Okuma I just started working on. For Example, I just setup a 5mm carbide endmill at 10000 RPM and a Feed of 3000 MM Per Min. However After I reinitialized my speeds and feeds I got something like 7K Rpm and 2100 Feed. I have been struggling with this for a week or so and cant get anywhere. Lock Feeds and speeds is NOT checked.

    Surfacing Arc/Line Tolerances?

    We could do that, I have reservations for that as these are parts that we get fairly frequently through these 2 machines. But this could be due to my lack of drip feeding experience(I've only done it once in the past). We use the FTP function to transfer programs, but the USB option is available. I did find that something was up with the surface I was using. I had accidentally used the wrong level. Re-selecting the surfaces I had drawn with Mastercam drastically reduced the size of the program, from something like 300k lines to 20k which I can fit in the control. Doing this basically resolved my 2 questions. But I thought I remember in older versions like X9 there was a drop-down for arc line filtering in the surfacing ops. Thanks, Dave W.
  13. Hey Guys, I am trying to trim the fat on this part program so it will fit on my Fanuc Control. I do some Dynamic Profiling which I've already opened up the Arc and Line tolerancing on. On some of the Roughing Surfacing I could give up some tolerance as well but I cant find the dialog in MCam2018. Another Question I had, With both the dynamic and the surfacing ops I see it posts my x moves broken up. Even if it's moving 50" in X, it is broken up into about .875 movements with no Y change. I find this really confusing with the Dynamic milling because its a drawn rectangle for line geometry. What causes this and is there any other settings I can tweak to get this program size under control? Thanks, Dave W.

    Mcam 2018 Mouse Wheel Issue

    Thanks for the replies, I would've replied sooner but I hit my post limit yesterday I guess. I was able to resolve the issue with Microsoft mouse and keyboard manager, I had noticed the mouse wheel had what seemed like a lot of side to side play, this turned out to be for "horizontal scrolling". I disable horizontal scrolling with the Microsoft manager and every thing works as it should! I discovered this yesterday while looking to uninstall the Microsoft drivers. However all I had for drivers for the mouse was a "HID compliant mouse", with no rollback options. Thanks for the help!

    Mcam 2018 Mouse Wheel Issue

    So I disabled reverse zoom and it works a bit now. I tried cranking my wheel sensitivity way up and it works more like you would expect, but is still odd. I never thought a mouse would give me such trouble!
