Hello, I've come across various issues related to modifying Bnci files, and I've successfully addressed many of them. However, I'm currently facing challenges when it comes to implementing these modifications into existing operations. Despite making changes in the Bnci file, the alterations appear as "dead sections" when I regenerate the Bnci file to validate my work. My objective is to effectively apply these changes to operations. Specifically, when I generate the NC file, any feed rate modifications, such as adding new line and changing its feedrate to "5493," do not seem to reflect in the actual NC file. Successfully accomplishing this would allow me to simulate and verify my changes at the end. For instance, I want to insert additional points between existing ones in the toolpath or modify the feed rates of existing points. Subsequently, I aim to simulate these changes to ensure the successful insertion of points. In the simulation tool, it should be easy to observe the updated values of x, y, z, and feed rate. Part of my code given below. What is your suggestion to solve that issue? Explanation of the code: I copy bnci line which is a linear feed move type of operation. I change its feedrate. Then, I insert it after the existing original line. For the result, insertion is successful. However, changes cannot be seen if you generate NC file. Because of that, I cannot observe new feedrate values on the simulation too. However, changes can be seen as a "dead section" inside the Bnci file. Is there any solution for that issue? Important issue in here is that I need to insert additional points between existing points. Example : Old Toolpath: A -- B -- C New Toolpath: A -- A.i -- A.ii -- B -- B.i -- B.ii -- C A.i, A.ii, B.i, B.ii are new points added between existing ones. Thank you everyone for their time and consideration.
Hi everyone, i'm starting to use VBScript to manage some lathe operations but i can't find anyway to create lathe toolpaths, I can only work with millng operations. Can you guys help me with some informations or documents you might know? I'm searching through the help menu on the code editor of MX9 but only mill operations appear. Is it possible to work with lathe operations using VBScript on MX9 or is it necessary to work with Chooks and Net-hooks instead. Is this the only option? Thank you.
