  1. Hello, I have a problem with my Okuma Mu 400 VA. We bought this machine a few weeks ago and I ran a few tests on it but it wont make a full 5 axis cut. I read about TCPC (G169) on Okuma and tried it but it throws an error. I cant find a solution maybe someone can help me out here?
  2. Hello everyone, I'm having trouble configuring the generic fanus 5 axis post. I have a c/b head setup but when I tell the B axis to rotate 90 degrees during a TPlane change, it tilts up much further than 90 degrees. Is there a way to calibrate the postprocessor so that the B axis is in the correct angle? Values for rotary limits seem to only accept units such as millimeters, however 90mm does not correspond to 90 degrees on my machine. Thanks, John.
  3. Hi All, I could really use some help. I am cutting honeycomb and for the life of me I cannot get my lead/lag angle to apply to my toolpath entry. I have tried 5X flowline and parallel. I have a 1.5deg lead angle on the tool path but get my tool path to enter with the angle applied. Thank you,
  4. i just started to learn 5axis and my question is how do i edit the post from my z center of the trunion to the top of the part? or do u guys use plane (z .125 + fixture to the top of the part) or edit the post?. ex. if i face top of the part, my post output is z0 but the programmer at my shop post it at 5.1234. i asked him how he did it; he refused to help me by saying " its a secret." background: i went to college and the instrustor did not covered about posting. i bought books from emastercam and it didnt even cover anything about posting. thank you. i would appreciated if u help.
  5. I've used mastercam since V5.5, used it heavily from V6 to X, took another job in sales that diverted me from programming for a while, now I'm back. In the past, I used NCL for all 5 axis programming, NCL is no longer available to me so I'm going to use X7. How can I get up to speed quickly? is the Advanced multiaxis training manual good? are there any good sample files available? Where is the best place to go for 5-axis training? my local reseller recommended a local contract programmer. appreciate all the help I can get.. Russ
