Hello. I am extremely new to Mastercam, so forgive me if I don't make a lot of sense. I am working on a lathe part that also requires multi-axis milling. I've been tackling it for quite some time now. It is very important to note that I am doing this for work and on a company laptop. Said laptop is also being used by other programmers, for other machines (I am trying to program this part for an OKUMA.) When I tried to post my G-code yesterday, I noticed that the feeds for the multi-axis milling portion of the job had drastically changed. I am talking a difference of about 100-150 (I am not quite sure where to see what the units are). I did not make any changes to the program, I even tried posting the code from a similar (almost identical) project that I know was using the correct feeds before. Same thing happened. My theory is that one of the other programmers made a change to the software that I am not aware of. The code, however, seems to be ok- seems to be generated for OKUMA. Any ideas?
We have a part that requires a 4" drill down 9.1. Currently, once the tip breaks thru we get an extreme amount of chatter. Is there a way to drill down 8.2 at a given speed, and after that it slows the drill down w/ o retracting, and if so how?
Hey guys, I have created a custom setup sheet for mill using the Active Reports Designer and I'm now working on one for lathe. I have a simple tool list and one of the things it outputs is the feed and speed of each tool. For the lathe tools I know there are XML tags for "FAST-FEED" and "SLOW-FEED" to get the feed rate for each tool. Where I run into an issue is with any live tooling. For live tooling my setup sheet will give the speed, but not the feed rate. I noticed that the live tooling (C-axis) tools appear to be defined in the mill tool manager instead of the lathe tool manager. Is there a way to output the feed rate for the live tooling, such as c axis drilling, in my setup sheet using the Active Reports Designer? Thanks!
