  1. Re: Renishaw Probe on Haas Super Mini Mill - Can't Calibrate

    You might try using the vector probing calibration routine (program O9804). That makes a more full calibration of the ball at several angles, which are then stored in macros. The normal calibration...
  2. Re: Input on two bench top injection machine options.

    Well, now you're getting into a whole other question: how to design a mold. Typically, the mold size is derived from how big the part is, and what size machine it would be going into. And typically,...

    Re: Quick Question / Clarification on G54

    No, G54 just calls the work offset (makes it active). You have to set the work offset by another method (by G10, macro, or when you set up your part).

    Re: new to cnc, need help with meshcam

    I am not that familiar with Mach3, but it looks to me like the problem program was not calling a tool height (G43 H...) or a work offset (G54 - the offset may have a default, so that might not be an...
  5. Re: Input on two bench top injection machine options.

    I don't have any experience with either of those machines, but I did do a bit of molding in the past. I would say go with the American made machine over the one from China. They might be equal...

    Re: M97 local sub. keeps looping

    Unless you edited this to shorten the post, you need something like an M30 or a GOTO between the the Z1. line and the N12000 line, or it is just going to keep running the "subprogram" as an inline...

    Re: Anyone know how to copy to MDI

    You can't copy to MDI. You can output your MDI into a scratch program to save it, if you want, but you can't send it back to MDI. I know, that's not the same thing, but it might help.

    Re: HELP PLEASE PROGRAMMING VARIABLES

    I don't think you are going to get that done without macros. Well, how many passes are you making? Could you maybe prgram in incremental, at least for the length? Then you could maybe only have to...

    Re: Space Requirements for Haas TM-1

    I was just wondering about the ballpark price, really, so that's perfect. It looks like they are a little less than Tormach, depending on options? Let us know how the machine works for you, for sure!

    Re: Space Requirements for Haas TM-1

    I'd be interested to know what they quote you on the machine. I'm sure others on here would be curious, as well!

    Re: Wireless Probe for Haas TM

    I couldn't say what year Haas went to version 14 software, but it was a while ago. The easiest thing to do would be to check it on any machine you are interested in. It's listed in the parameters...

    Re: NPT to NPS threading help HAAS ST20Y!

    I think what you want is a G32 cycle. It can do changing angles like that (taper to straight, etc).

    From the Haas online manual: "G32 differs from other thread cutting cycles in that taper and/or...

    Re: Alarm 340

    It'd be a lot easier to trouble shoot if you included a program, offsets, machine type, that sort of thing.
  15. Re: M96 problem on NexGen ST20 lathe, Posted in the Lathe Forum this time.

    Are you blocking lookahead before the M96? If not, the M96 is probably being processed at lookahead time, so the output may not be in the same state when it is polled as it is when the line is...

    Re: Automatic Alignment Cycle

    Displayed messages are often overwritten. You could use M130 (media display), if you have the new control. That can be used to display all kinds of pics, docs, or videos.

    Re: Automatic Alignment Cycle

    1) You can't jog, and have the program pick back up. You can do RUN STOP JOG CONTINUE, but I believe that will return to the previous position. You could get tricky with macros, and create a program...

    Re: Fault in program

    You mean the tool is gouging the top surface outside of the pocket? That could be happening because you are ramping down outside of the pocket boundary. I would think either raising your R-plane a...

    Re: Buffer Problem !

    I'm not sure what "relief arts" are, but I imagine it involves lots of tiny moves. You might see if you can get your software to output longer moves, instead of lots of tiny ones. I am not familiar...

    It would help to know what kind of machine, where you are running the code from, how you generated the code, that sort of thing. But, as a guess, you are running code that has too many strokes per...

    Re: Engraving on VF-4

    Well, it could work, you just can't make it all one line. You need to do something like this:

    #599= 1000000.

    Re: Engraving on VF-4

    No, you can't double up the p codes. If you want to engrave literal text, you use P0. So G47 P0 .... (MFG : 100###) will engrave exactly that. If you want the 1000### to increment, you could use P1...
  23. Re: New VF2, Spindle air always on and draining air tank

    That doesn't sound right. It doesn't turn off if you press RESET, or use M74, or cycle power? Maybe the solenoid is stuck? Where is the air coming from, specifically? Straight down the spindle, like...

    Re: Older VF2 Thermal Comp Incorrect

    Setting 160, not parameter 160. You can use setting 160 to tweak the comp plus or minus, up to 30%.

    The Negate Comp setting I think has to do with what end of the ballscrew the motor is mounted...
