  1. Hi, I'm currently in a 3rd year engineering program at my high school. In that class, we have numerous licensed educational seats of Mastercam X6, along with lots of other pieces of dangerous-looking equipment, available to us. I also have a copy of Mastercam X6 HLE on my laptop which I need to use in order to finish a large project with a very short deadline we were recently given. So, here's my problem: After I'm done with the software part of the project, I have to create the part on a CNC. Now, as you probably know, X6 HLE was neutered specifically to prevent people from being able to do that. So, is it possible to open Mastercam X6 HLE files on a licensed copy of Mastercam X6 and then post the NC file so I can machine the part?
  2. Hi -- I need to configure a post processor for a Toyoda FA550ii with a GE Fanuc Series 16i-M. This is my first time programming for a 4 axis HMC, and my reseller has suggested using the generic HMC post. Does anybody have any experience with this machine, or better, have experience configuring a post for this machine? Any help would be appreciated. -Bret Vanderhyden Goleta, California
  3. Hello all. I've been working on a post for the shop on their haas vf6 with Trunnion 5 axis. Everything seems to be posting fine but I would like a tool list to appear in the same manner as the Generic Haas 4x Mill post. I tried to take some of the lines that refer to ptooltable to the new 5x post but so far I only get the very first tool and only the first tool to post in the list. here's an example: % O1002 ( OP2-24127-19 REV M ) ( 30-10-12 | 14:00 ) ( ==TOOL List== ) ( T1 1/4 CTR DRILL | D: .25 ) <= Should populate rest of the tools but stops at the 1st one N1 G20 N2 G0 G17 G40 G49 G80 G90 N3 G0 G28 G91 Z0. N4 ( T1 | 1/4 CTR DRILL ) <= Tool comment link to post dl: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yxurnmgvxpkq2o9/Generic%20Haas%20VF-TR_Series%205X%20Mill.pst thanks in advance!
