I would like to use an index drill as a drill and boring bar. I can set it up like a drill in my tool library, but does anyone know the proper way to call it out being that its has offsets for a drill and also offsets as a boring bar. HAAS has a video saying you can do this, but they don't really explain much beyond that. The devil is in the details. - The process would be call out the Drill as TOOL X with offset X and drill hole. - Then call out "drill" again, but it's actually a boring bar now. It would have the offset of a boring bar. The designation would still be drill but operating as a boring bar. This gets really confusing. I almost think I have to do the tool as a boring bar separately using the insert on the outside like the tip of a boring bar. Thanks, Steve
I'm trying to get my boring bar to retract before going straight up (home). I have 3 lathes with left chucks and 1 with a right chuck. Have tried defining stock and setting ref points and that works MOST!! of the time. Is there any way to get the right chuck lathe to load a different operation default file automatically? Then I could have the ref point box checked and have approach and retract set to Z.1. every time I open a lathe opp. Then it wouldn't matter if i forgot to define the material or X7 decides it doesn't feel like it want's to retract . Thanks Pete
