    Re: V32 CAM Tree Flyouts

    File Bloat issue sorted in this version?
  2. Re: Post-processor and Canned Cycles without DWELL

    No, turn on Debug mode and post sample code with the type of machining features you are interested in, Debug will tell you which line of the Post Processor generates each line of code.
  3. Re: Post-processor and Canned Cycles without DWELL

    It is an example of nothing more than that your Controller is not exactly the same, you have made no point and asked no question here.



    HAAS understand the functionality of their controller...
  4. Re: Post-processor and Canned Cycles without DWELL

    Then you will know if the controller requires the dwell parameter to be omitted or if it requires a hard coded zero in that position as you will have written the code which interprets G-Code and runs...
  5. Re: Post-processor and Canned Cycles without DWELL

    That's controller specific, refer to your controller manufacturer's documentation for a list of canned cycles and what they are/do, the required parameters, descriptions of exactly what they are/do...
  6. Re: Post-processor and Canned Cycles without DWELL

    BCC Version?
    I only ask because with 25- 29 I may be able to help, after that you'll need the PP documentation from BobCAD , if they publish any, plus that for your controller to tell you the order...

    That's just a display of licensing status, clicking it won't start it ;-)

    Re: what is wrong with the code?

    Yes, but it did say on the handle "Not for use as a pry bar or chisel" :D

    You can use the G Code commenter here - G-Code Commenter

    to tell you what most of your code is doing -

    Re: what is wrong with the code?

    It's a steep old learning curve but CAM doesn't produce G Code, CAM produces a Move List, your Post Processor is used to interpret the move list and generate G Code.

    Start by explaining what you...

    Re: cutting strategy

    You can manually edit and add in a stop command at the end of the code from the first setup.
    Alternatively post your two setups as separate programs.
  11. Re: Use version 27, upgrade, or look into other CAM?

    It's a shame you didn't have V28, I'd be interested in a license for that version.
  12. Re: Use version 27, upgrade, or look into other CAM?

    Don't beat yourself up for not doing the things which were required, everyone occasionally lets things slide.
    Just make the effort and get it installed and running.
  13. Re: Use version 27, upgrade, or look into other CAM?

    I'm still running V25, it does all all the things I need it to do.
    I've tried V30 but I can't cope with the file bloat and so having to copy all your finished geometry to a new file to get...
  14. Re: BobCAD posting 4x more code than necessary?

    Lots of those are not really OK, I see no evidence that BCC has fixed problems in any of the free to download posts, even though they must have written good ones for customers it seems no one applies...

    Re: cutting strategy

    Run the simulation and save the stock out as a solid model, import this as the stock for the next op.

    Re: Post Processor Modification

    What the BCC documentation doesn't mention regarding Advanced Posting is that Check Boxes 1 to 24 are addressed as 0 to 23 in VB Script which can throw you a curve ball ;-)

    Re: setup

    If your machined side doesn't lend itself to be being held in a vice for the second op you can machine a soft jaw which will support it derived from your part geometry or that of the machined stock...

    Re: setup

    Use Work Coordinate Systems, it's mainly down to planning, reference points on work, stock or both, work stops and accurate set up though.

    Mill_Post_Variables is the "Legacy" info with V28, the other document is "current documentation" as supplied with V28

    Re: Post Processor Modification

    Variable names for use in scripting are different in different versions of BCC, ideally you need the variable list for the version you are working in, if a variable name is yielding an empty string...

    I was always told that Planes fly an Arcs float :D
  23. Re: Need BobCad V30 post for Milltronics Centurion 7

    Does the post processor actually create the values X 10.000”, Y 0.200” in the code?
