  1. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Same here. If it retracts from the workspace then I gain about 8" inches back on my 5'x10' machine. I paid for that workspace and I want to use it. That is what was killing me with static posts. I...
  2. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    Thanks for the input! Once I have this out we can start looking at other systems to integrate with. Keep in touch!
  3. Re: I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing

    I am running Mach4 but it would be easy to port to Mach3 and LinuxCNC. I have decided to shoot for end of June or early July for release to github. I am making a custom PCB to simplify the...

    I was measuring the lift off and seating during operation of the drawbar in that video. I need to get the system cleaned up and better video made of it.

    I use GitHub a great deal, but the time it...
  5. I built my own ATC Tool Carousel, would anyone be interested in me open sourcing it?

    Hello!

    I recently added an ATC spindle to my CNC. I quickly out grew the static tool posts that came with it.

    When I looked for a tool carousel I couldn't find one that was affordable and my...

    Re: Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Thank you very much, Mr. Dawson! I appreciate the help. You made my weekend go better than expected. I will check into the FogBuster.

    Re: Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Well, I took off about 5 mm of the 1018 bar where it was rough without a hitch. The end mill survived (the 1/2" HSS) which is always nice. The calculator seem to be pretty accurate as to the speed...

    Re: Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Interesting, I never read that page through until now. I always just glanced it over when it popped up in my search results. The end mill is kind of big and I am moving a little fast and going way...

    Advice on my first cuts on 1018 steel

    Hello! If somebody would like to comment on my plans here it would be nice. I'm hoping somebody will see an obvious flaw in my plans and point it out. I have actually tried to find classes in milling...

    MadCAM Status for 2017?

    Hello!

    I am making my budget for software in 2017. MadCAM hasn't seen an update in a while and there are features still out sanding that I require. Granted I am an odd ball user so this isn't a...
  11. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    Inventor Subscription | Buy Inventor | Autodesk

    $235/month

    HSM Pro is a plugin

    Also, many people tell me the 3+2 in Fusion is very usable. It does the whole stock on a stick (Z, X with A...
  12. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    I am running 2.7.4 as of 2 hours ago. I can assure you G93 is still required to mix linear and angular motion. The silky smoothness is just breath taking because the mill itself is a piece of crap...
  13. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    Which is exactly why I would love to see G93 in MadCAM.

    Let's just be frank here, MadCAM's 3 axis output is beautiful. Very comparable to software costing 5 or even 10 times its price, Rhino3D...
  14. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    Uh, not sure what you are asking.
  15. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    As you are aware LinuxCNC requires G93 input for angular axis and linear axis to be used together. My machine is 4 axis. I did configure the system to use a constant speed on the A axis but it got...
  16. Re: Any news on madCam support for G93 Inverse timing in 4 axis cutting?

    It doesn't matter anymore because I use a G-Code genertaor from AutoDesk that fully supports G93 and LinuxCNC.

    If I remember correctly the guy who set up your machine set the A axis to a constant...

    No, no progress. I have been waiting for well over a year. It's not a high priorit I guess.

    Re: Collisions in simulation

    Well, I got what I wanted but is it the right way to do it?

    Anyways, I remember faintly that this was how I did it before... see attached.

    Collisions in simulation

    Hello!

    I have a test model of a simple box with lid. As the cut progresses it collides with the stock outside of the curve I defined as the limits. I have had this problem before but I forgot what...

    That would be SR10 as I keep it current. The SR10 part I cannot find anywhere but the version says: 5.0.2014.610

    It updated yesterday because the first thing I do before using any external module...

    So I updated yesterday but I am getting more strange behavior beside paths going through the models. Things like two bounding boxes for the stock representation. I've uploaded an image showing the...

    Problems with 4 axis operations...

    This may be the same problem as with the 5 axis, see image attached with odd tool paths.

    Also, the 4 axis settings direction value keeps resetting to "0,0,1" for each operation. So if you set it...

  26. madCAM Update Post Processing Missing Completion Time

    Hello!

    I updated this morning to the new madCAM 5.0.2014.520.

    I was sad to see the estimated time is no longer present when I process out to g-code. It use to give me a great estimation for...

    Well, what behavior is it exhibiting? There are so many things that can go wrong there just simply cannot be one solution. Mine was rather mundane but everyone told me a different thing. Turns out as...
  28. Re: Can somebody explain the "Lead" section on the Tool Path Menus?

    Holy Crap!

    So the steps only get lost when the machine is hot. About an hour into the cut. The steps only are lost in three places, plunges where the mill does its swirlies BUT!!!! not during the...
  29. Re: Can somebody explain the "Lead" section on the Tool Path Menus?

    Yes, my mill is a Grizzly imported X3 with a 4th Axis from Sherline PN 3700.

    Your values are way higher than mine! I assume you use a different motor and gear system to drive your spindle as the...
  30. Re: Can somebody explain the "Lead" section on the Tool Path Menus?

    Mauri,

    Thanks for responding. My A axis is a Sherline PN 3700. Here is the information you request. I have no balance weight on the Z nor a gas piston. If you can help me find a "safe zone" type...
