  1. Re: CAM model to level sacrificial bed

    The whole reason for having the G28 G91 Z0 line is for SAFETY, but it only works if the user has correctly setup their machine and it has been correctly "Homed".

    Regardless of where the machine is...

    Re: BobCad Corp. are Thieves!!!!!

    OK, lets look at this, is it a "buyers remorse" situation or is it a genuine case of a download issue.

    If it is the first one then I say "suck it up" and get a life!!

    If it is indeed a genuine...
  4. Re: BobCAD posting 4x more code than necessary?

    What Post Processor are you using??

    If using the BC_3x.BCPST then open in Notepad and have a look at the lines shown below and check the settings, may be something there that will help.

    Re: fusion file to big for control

    How big is the file??

    Do you not have the PCMIA card for extra memory that was an option with the 12i M control.

    If not then "Drip Feed" is the best option, I always had this issue with my old...

    Re: Nesting unique parts

    You would be best contacting BobCAD and asking for a price for the actual Nesting Module that they do, which seems to work reasonably well.

    Re: Can’t get the right surface

    Hi Burr

    Yep, I fully agree with you re the "Cross Section" in effect being a version of "Loft", it does work and is very accurate in that as you rightly point out working with lines/arcs is good,...

    Re: Can’t get the right surface

    What we really need is a "Loft" option that can be found in several other softwares, it would be nice if BobCAD could look at including this in the next version (V32?).

    I have attached a short...

    BobCAD won`t fillet the solid in this instance, (it is quite normal for it to crash trying to do this operation:(,) what you need to do is go to the "Utilities" tab and use the "Stitching > Unstitch...

    Re: Fusion 360 question

    Joe

    FYI, I forgot to tell you that the NC Viewer can be "embedded" into Fusion 360 (Usually is to start with), so your G code can be backplotted within the Fusion work space, once code is produced...
  12. Re: Inventor GCODE Post Issue Accumulating Error Circular Interpolation

    Well, I don`t think that you have anything to really worry about, the error is only 0.001 of a millimeter and is not cumulitive as once that line is the 0.001mm out all the susequent lines still do a...

    Re: How to copy V26 files to V30?

    Probably the simplest way would be to just copy the files on to a Flash Drive and use the drive to transfer the files to the new computer and save them to the required locations, however that is...

    Re: ENGRAVING

    Seems to work fine here on V28, are you using a single line Font or actually drawing the lines etc and/or are you vectorizing the text? FYI I didn`t vectorize the text, just used the BobCAD single...

    Re: v26 drag knife support?

    Not for V26, it does now exist in V31 though but that would cost a chunk of change to upgrade from V26 to V31 :(

  19. Re: Post processor for Fusion 360 to Sherline (LinuxCNC)

    OK, have you tried to run the G code I sent you, does the code that will run have a % sign at the start, if so then that may be the issue.

    Can you post some code that works on here so we can see...
  20. Re: Post processor for Fusion 360 to Sherline (LinuxCNC)

    Hmm, what do you mean by "will not even start" ?? Do you mean that you are unable to generate any code at all?

    I have done a simple 2D pocket in Fusion and used the LinuxCNC PP to post code, to me...

  22. Re: Post processor for Fusion 360 to Sherline (LinuxCNC)

    Very, very few Post Processors will "work out of the box", even if it does say the PP is for LinuxCNC there are many configurations of the control out there so depending on how you have set up your...

  25. Re: Trouble getting a solid subtract to function correctly
