    G10 Output help please......

    Ron, If were machining a single piece, that is a solution that would make perfect sense...typically though, I have many multiples of pieces on a single tombstone through a myriad of transforms... Program I am working on now will create 16 complete parts per each cycle but they are located in 3 machining positions on the tombstone....because of the tolerances of our parts, we use offsets for each position to control each part individually... 16 parts x 3 positions = 48 unique part positions Each part requires 7 offsets in all 3 positions....112 uniques offsets.... I try to give the guys on the floor as little to have to think about as possible..... But perhaps, something I'll think on....thanks for the idea

    G10 Output help please......

    Basic info is but I do have to edit after posting to to denote their actual distances from either a pin hole location of tooling ball I could do it in the post using a question method but I have not figured out yet how to save the question answers so a repost doesn't require typing them all again

    Solidworks Parasolid Error, but not what you think...

    It did, yes... A configuration may not come in if the Solidworks file does not have it rebuilt properly. That's something that has to be done within Solidworks

    Solidworks Parasolid Error, but not what you think...

    I'm pretty sure it would have to be saved with the configuration you need as the last active save It seems to me there "used" to be a way to select which configuration you wanted

    2020 verify

    Maybe the 2020 MR1 patch will just install X9

    Full 4 axis programming

    I could be mistaken but I believe G54.2 is only good for 3 axis or 3 + 2, not simultaneous cutting

    Benchmark 3.0

    Not bad for a 4+ year old machine
  13. Old_Bear

    Full 4 axis programming

    Standard, not likely To the best of my knowledge and experience without tooltip compensation, it's got to be all on centerline and correctly positioned for the simultaneous to be correct

    Too much code for helix entry

    Were it me, I'd push it up to CNC Software....the helix should obey your control def settings..
