I have created a program that finishes with a 4-axis rotary tool path. I am using a Haas VF2 with the Generic 4-axis haas post from MasterCam. It's about 80K lines of code that get output using G93 Inverse time feed. Feed is non-modal when using G93 so there needs to be an F-value on every single line while G93 is active. About 1 out of every 20 lines does not have an F value and I can't figure out why.. any thoughts as to how I can fix this? Thanks, Al
Any advice welcome. My customer has asked me to do a few trials so we can get backplot/verify in 2018 to match real world cycle times. We know we will not get it perfect, but close would be nice. My first issue i just spotted, backplot says 2 hours 6 minutes. Yet verify comes up with 1 hour 54 minutes. Simple question! WHY?
Demo8Man posted a topic in Industrial ForumI'm looking for software that will take G code from the floor, after being edited and determine the length of time it should take to run a part. Does Cimco have an add on function? Or? I know that MC will show how much time it takes when I program a part but I want to know how much time it's take once it has been edited on the floor.
I was wondering if anyone else is seeing large discrepancies between the time shown in the backplot menu under the info tab and the actual time on machine?? I know machine configurations like tool change and max rapids, deceleration, acceleration all play their part, but shouldn't it be close if you are using the correct machine (in your machine group inside mastercam I mean)? I would like to add up front as I just said this, I don't have my correct machine at the moment (Haas UMC-750) but I am using the generic Haas renishaw 4axis VMC. I can't see there being much difference between the 2 if I am just doing 2axis or 3axis work. I can't post a file or anything due to work rules. I am cutting a 2d high speed path with an 1/8 endmill, 107ipm, 5% max stepover and its is showing a total cycle time of 10min 49sec. I am showing 22min 10 sec on my machine. The machine is at 100% rapid and 100% feed and all that. FWIW my machine only records the time during cycle start so if I feed hold anything (which I did not on this toolpath) it pauses so the machine clock should be pretty accurate. I have never checked it to a stop watch, but at over 2x what Mastercam says I couldn't see the clock being that far off anyways. I just finished the entire program and the difference between mastercam backplot and machine clock is just under 13min. That said, it looks like all the toolpath times are almost twice as long to run on the machine... any ideas? Looking forward to hearing from you guys! Thanks!!
