Re: override tool auto slection (closest diamiter)

You will need to make sure that the mortise is wider than your 3/8 tool. If it is and your machine is still picking up the 1/4 tool then you need to redo the order of operation tools. If your 1/4 is in your operations list before the 3/8 then it will always select the 1/4. The software looks at each...

Re: V-carve on 1997 C53 router

Gavin, If you have a 97 then your machine is OS2 based and probably has no tool management. This means that you will most likely not use normal tool numbers to change tools but will use macro calls. If you would like to, you can email me a copy of one of the files that is already on the machine and ...

Re: 901 PART LOCATOR while doing Vee Grooves

After you press the cycle start to perform the slatwall cuts, there is only one line of code that has the ability to cause it to skip past everything to the end. IF [DADOTOOLNO=0] THEN M81L70 (No Pre Dadoing Required) THis line has it jump down to the end where it loops back to the beginning of the ...

Re: 901 PART LOCATOR while doing Vee Grooves

The M00 code is a program stop. It will stop the file from running until you press the cycle start button again. You should be fine to press the green button and continue from what I can see.

Brent,

Post your code so we can see where it is stopping. Every cad/cam software is different and puts out different code.

Re: pocket operation failer but cleanup suceeded

I have looked at Wills files and found the issue. THere were some arcs that were not tangent causing calculation errors. I have corrected the files and sent them back to Will.

Re: Error finding part in flip op array

Josh,

Have you tried to nest this and create the code at the machine? I can import your settings and it works fine. This makes me think that it is something corrupted like a table in your desktop version.

Re: Carving

Will, You can place the acceleration macro anywhere in the program and it will take effect immediately. If you want to slow the accelerations down only on the carving, you can add a G803 before it starts on that section of the code and then place a G800 afterwards so the rest of the cutting is at re...

Re: Carving

Kerry, On the Gen 2 and the Qcore you really dont need to adjust the tanfac. What you would really want to adjust is your accelerations. If you change from 100 percent (G800) accellerations to 70 percent (G803), you should see an improvement on the shaking and you will not loose as much time in the ...

Re: Profile model not clearing long tool

Will, Sorry but there is no way to change the home position's value. Home is and always will be 0.000. Forest, The only time that it does not put the z motion prior to the x and y is right after a tool call. All other positioning moves have a z retract to the retract height prior to the x and y moti...

Re: Profile model not clearing long tool

Forrest, The software creates the code in this manner because after a tool change, the Z axis is at its home, which should be the highest point for the axis. It moves out over the part and then moves down to the clearance height. I don't think the engineers ever thought of someone using a tool that ...
