    Re: More free macros

    Use of 'AND' / 'OR' in an IF statement may be disabled by a parameter setting. Something like 'allowing logical statements to be used everywhere'
    Mazak machines do NOT allow IF THEN (only IF GOTO)...

    Re: Toyoda FA 400

    Which control do you have on that machine? Fanuc 16i or something else? 6 or 12 button screen? Do you have the manuals for that machine? The MG-U is covered in 7.5 of the Maintenance manual.

    The custom button always gave us the 'Toyoda Op-Supporter' page.

    The battery is not on the motor.

  6. Re: Macro Variables Punch through a Program Or M Code ?

    Yea as long as you have the macro B option. I think most fanuc controls in the last 20 years usually have it turned on.

    Make a macro program and assign it a G or M code.

    Something like:

    Mazak spindle orient to angle

    This is specifically for an HCN6000 II mill. For doing things like broaching. I havn't found any mention of options for this, but if you know of one I'll look into that as well.

    Not quite sure what you want but this example should show you enough to figure it out on your own.
    To call it from another program use:

    Re: Replaced SL1H door glass on the cheap

    The lexan will chip and wear over time. While it is tough it may or may not be a strong on an actual impact as the original window was.
    Just remember it isn't just a window, but a saftey shield too.

    Re: DEG/MIN on helix

    Mentally "unroll" the helix and calculate it in 2d. For 1 revolution rotary distance is the circumference, and the pitch is the linear distance. You now have two of the 90 deg sides of a triangle. ...

    The G-code tells the machine what to do, and it is fairly easy to read. So from it you can figure out what the CNC will do. Syncing that to a video is a very different matter. How did you plan to...
