    N NUMBERS

    yeah i have that in my other post but when i try to put it in this one it doesnt like it.But Im probably putting it in the wrong place # ---------------------------------------------------------- # BEGIN Tool usage stuff tused = flook(3,t$) #How many times has this tool# been used ##TEST FEATURE###if tused > 0,n$, "This tool has already been used ", *tused, " times", e$##TEST FEATURE### result = finc(3,t$) #Track tool usage('finc' updates to the lookup table) nn = t$ * 100 n$, *nn, e$ # END Tool usage stuff # ----------------------------------------------------------- this is in my other post. Im trying to update our old post with this one since its more up to date. This is the only thing that I lack and this post will be pretty solid for us,
  5. I just downloaded the MPMaster post and I am wondering how you make the N numbers start in the hundreds and increase by 10 everytime the tool is used ( ex: n100 for first run and n110 the next time its called up)

    VPN help

    finally got it working. somehow the path to where it was going got screwed up and had to fix all the paths to point in the right folders. i actually moved everything to my C: drive instead of the network. Ill just get my files off the network. Thanks for the help
  8. You have to go through the versions page. Go Diagnosis, version ,right soft key twice, then you should be able to type in the box. Type 1131.Then hit Diagnosis again then version again and now to the far right there should be another tab that says version hit it. Then its actually a Q parameter its the Q4 it needs to be set to 4 mine was on 1. I would power down and power back up as this may need that procedure.

    ROBODRILL POST

    ROBODRILL POST

    Thanks Colin. I will give him a call
  11. We just got 2 new 5th axis Robodrills. Im thinking the post is backwards we have the 5th axis mounted on the leftside of the table but I think its posting for either the right-side or with the A rotating in Y axis instead of the X. Is there a way to tell which one the post is for as I am at work and nobody is at my resellers right now to ask or confirm and im kinda needing to get this thing running. I've tried the Fanuc 5th axis post that comes with MasterCam but it doesn't post my G68.2 for my tool tip. Very frustrating. The post is actually a Postability post figured it would be pretty solid but not sure if anyone communicated which side our rotary would be on so I figured that had to be some switch to change in the post.
  12. Im trying to rename one of my integers and I keep getting an alarm that's says it is active but im not using it . Im trying to add one but really not sure where in the post to add it. Ive read the earlier post on it and can make it do it on every tool but I just want to be able to turn it on the tools that I want to as far as if the program runs the tool back to back. Im not wanting it to touch the tool off at the end every time. im wanting it for a tool break detect integer or real but struggling with where to add it in the post where it doesn't do it at every tool.
