  3. I'm using 2018 and I'm having an issue with 2 of my seats behaving differently... One seat will never, ever show the correct "drill parameter text" in the operations. I am under the impression that this info is stored with the control definition? yes? no? text files have long since been abolished, right? Here's what happens; My seat of Mastercam works just fine, that is, when I make a drilling cycle, I see all the correct cycles and get all the correct parameters. I copy all 4 required files (Post.pst, post.psb, machine.mcam-mmd, machine.mcam-control) to the second seat, open a session, and BLAMO... all the drilling cycles are gone. Everything wiped out. What gives? What am I missing? Why can't I see the cycles on the second machine? J

  5. Hey friends, I looked around and didn't see a thread that addressed this problem, feel free to direct me if this is a duplicate. I am trying to clean up our lathe post processor and one of the annoying things it does is that sometimes, not always, it duplicates the last tool entry in my tool table. I can't find what controls this process or why some programs have the problem and some don't. My code for the tool table is: ptooltable # Write tool table, scans entire file, null tools are negative tnote = t$ toffnote = tloffno$ tlngnote = tlngno$ spaces$=0 if t$ >= zero, [ "(", *t$, " | ", plistcomm, ")" ] spaces$=sav_spc Which produces the following tool table in my program: (T1 | R .032 OD ROUGH RIGHT) (T2 | R .016 OD FINISH RIGHT) (T5 | OD THREAD RIGHT) (T12 | .118 PART OFF BLADE) (T12 | .118 PART OFF BLADE) Any suggestions on how to stop it from duplicating the last tool? Many Thanks!
  6. Any help please. One of my customers has a few Milltronics Centurion 7 machining centres. Now that I have started posting dynamic tool paths with 2018, the machines are doing odd things but not always. Mastercam verify shows a perfect profile, cimco matches this with g-code backlit. But machine on occasion will cut straight into the part, breaking the tool. Checking on the machine graphics verify, this shows the error path. This means the custom can catch the error before any damage. Any ideas would be great, my thought was the look ahead setting. But just a guess.
  7. I'm modifying the generic 4-axis mastercam post. Everything is working great, except when I post the rotational axis is is off by 90 degrees with the coordinate system I like using. Is there a way to change this? I know I can just change my coordinate system, however I was trying to avoid doing this. Thanks for the help.

  11. Does anyone know if it's possible to output a post block to nc stating the toolpath ID. If you are asking why, it is quite simple. When an operator finds an error in the NC program, I would like him to be able to tell me the previous toolpath block as this would make finding the error in mastercam so much quicker.
  12. I am the general how can I help the shop make money guy. We have an okuma millac 1000vh that we have been having problems getting mastercam to post out right. We had a guy that worked for us trying to get it correct but he no longer works for us. We went to our Mastercam dealer and they could not get a post to work on our Cincinnatti T35 so we are not asking them for help on this. I have filled out a request through this site for a post. However my question is do we need to have a post created at all? I see all kinds of things about mastercam can be configured with the base posts to do anything, I see you cant do anything and need an unlocked mastercam post to edit. So these are some of the problems we are fighting; 5 axis rotary motion not oreninting correct, 0 Can 3 axis cycle works not G19 correctly Tilt plane shifting does not work Rotary curvic for position does not lock head and table (m10,M12) G43.1 does not come in at right location in program What is the best direction to go from here? (Fanuc 30i, 5 axis bridge, 4 ax on head, 5 axis rotary table.)
  13. Old XP computer dying and trying to transition to a new computer with Mastercam X.I copied all files over and now post is putting all prep codes on first line. Each code is prefaced with N100. any help?
  14. I'm having a problem with the NC code for our 5-axis machine. The issue is the spindle can only reach half the table so all y values have to remain positive. I can't figure out how to fix this. Is it something in the post, the machine definition, or tool path? I've done the following to try and alleviate this issue: -Changed the y-limits in the machine definition -Changed the y-limits inside the post. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for the help!
  15. Hi everyone, Last week I thrown on a Live tooling lathe with a Y axis. I have never touched a Life tooling lathe let alone a Y axis one. My first part to make is a simple turn part with 2 mill features. A face contour and a cross contour that requires Y axis moves. The cross Contour I have figured out and it works perfectly. The face contour is where the problem is happening, and its post processor related. Our lathes C axis only excepts C0-C360 for absolute commands, Negative call outs Do not work. To do continuous interpolation an incremental call out of H is needed. H can be positive and negative and can be any reasonable number. If you command G0 C360. Once you hit 360 degree's its back at Zero degrees. So, he's what my post is doing.

Signed Continuous Signed direction, absolute angle (0-360 deg.) Shortest direction, absolute angle (0-360.) <=== Current Setting Is there any combo of these settings that will get me what i need? Which is to basically to give me an H incremental move to move the machine into the next 0-360 zone. I am using the Mplmaster post on X9.

  19. Good Morning All, When I make a change to a program I need to re-post it to up to 8 different machine types depending on the product line. The typical routine in this shop is to got to the Machine Definition Manager, Pick the required Post-Processor from the drop-down list, click the green check, say yes to the "Replace group machine" prompt, click Post Selected Operations, Name the files (Naming convention is the same depending on machine), and posting. Is there a good VB Script somewhere that I can pick apart and Frankenstein to make this process a little less tedious? If not, can someone point me in the direction of a good example line or two of code for picking the post processor and posting? Thanks! James
  20. Hello, My boss would like me to modify the post to retract every 5 holes so we could do a check for some of our custom defined canned cycle. To do this, I need mastercam to pass to the post processor the number of holes the canned cycle wil machine. After opening the NCI, I could not find anything that contained the information for the number of holes. I did see that each hole is defined by nci gcode 100. I would like to know if there is a way for the post to count the number of Gcode 100 and put that value in a variable. How would I go by to count the number of Gcode 100 in the operation? Regards,
  21.

  22. Hi guys, how do I add automatic Z safety move via post before each B rotation? For example if I use same tool on three sides, how to retract out to Z0 home for example, before rotatingn B axis, thanks guys

  24. Hi everyone first time posting anything on here, usually just use this site to do some stalking for ideas on posts. I finally ran into a post issue that I can't figure out on my own. Anyways, in our shop we are running makino a51's and mori nh4000 and usually we use top solid for programming but because there is so many bugs in top solid, we are moving back to mastercam and I am trying to get the post to mimic what we had in top solid. One of the things that would post out from the top solid post was a variable feed rate so we could change the feed rate global from the controller looks something like this F[40.*#997]. I only want it post out on linear moves. i.e not tap cycles! Any ideas?
  25. I downloaded the mpaster X8 post processor. Updated post, control, and machine def to X9. Trying to use the post for a 4 axis HMC (B rotary axis). I make the Top plane the WCS, Front plane is the Tplane --- no B axis index (should be B0.0) when i post. However everything seems to be working fine when I change the Tplane to another plane. In this case I do get B index moves, which is what I want: WCS Top, with Tplane Right outputs B90.0 WCS Top, Tplane Back -- B180 WCS Top, Tplane Left -- B-90.0 Is there a way to get the post to output B0.0 ? thanks Bret
