    Re: CamWorks to Gcode anomaly?

    Hmm, can you post the code that CAMWorks spit out? I'm guessing this has something to do with your cutter compensation offsets in CAMWorks, but that will usually result in concentric circles. If you...

    Re: Remove extra pass

    I'm still not sure that I've captured what you're looking for. I have SolidWorks CAM standard so I can't see your assembly toolpaths. I've attached a quick example of some things you might try to get...

    Re: Remove extra pass

    Its a little tough to see what you're trying to do. More than likely, you'll want to try playing with the stepover value and also the air segment offset on the "feature options" tab. This is all...

    Re: CamWorks UPG source file?

    Never worked on a post for a multi-turret lathe before. I'm thinking this must be handled in the machine settings more so than the post itself, although the post must support it. If I get a few...

    Re: CamWorks UPG source file?

    Any post that contains variables or sections that are not recognized by UPG will not open in it. In cases when this happens, simply use ECEdit to make the changes you want and use UPG to compile the...

    Re: My First Mill/Turn Post

    You're probably well beyond this point by now. Sorry for the underwhelming response here. CAMWorks seems to be more and more of a niche product despite it being adopted by Solidworks themselves. I'm...

    Re: Install Disks

    Contact your machine seller and explain that you never got them. They should be able to supply you with the proper disks for your machine. Even if they charge a fee for it, it is going to be better...

    We are having some trouble with our OKUMA Cadet Mate with OSP700M control.

    For a long time the tool changer has been making a considerable clunking noise when the carousel advances. We're not...

    Re: Parameter for Restart-Alarm?

    I always have to run from the middle of the program. We are a job shop that makes short to medium run parts so we are constantly making changes, changing tools mid-run, etc. I like that idea, but I...

    Parameter for Restart-Alarm?

    We have 9 FANUC based machines including Robodrills and Feeler mills. The Robodrills are all 18i or 31i controllers and the Feelers are all 0i-M controllers except ONE of them, which is an 18i-MB....

    Re: Renishaw OTS Broken Tool Detection

    That makes sense when I am actively machining and WANT the tool to be slightly longer or shorter, but the wear offset doesn't reflect the physical length of the tool from gage-line. It represents the...

    Renishaw OTS Broken Tool Detection

    Hey everyone,

    We have a number of machines in our shop that use the Renishaw OTS touch setter probe for setting tool length offsets. Up until I started, they were never used for in-cycle broken...

    Re: Adjusting Lathe Y-Axis "Home" Position

    ok, I might be confusing myself a bit. It has been awhile since I worked on this machine. I think I need a better description of the y-axis zero offsets. There are two columns (YI , YS) and two rows...

    Re: Adjusting Lathe Y-Axis "Home" Position

    I completely understand what you're saying, and I have used this technique to align turret angles in VDI machines (to some extent). When I set the y-axis turning position, I first ensure that the...

    Re: Adjusting Lathe Y-Axis "Home" Position

    I typically use a coaxial indicator to quickly align tool holders in the lathe. If I need to be more precise I'll use a .00005" indicator on a swivel shank. I like to indicate the tool holders, since...

    Adjusting Lathe Y-Axis "Home" Position

    I'm working on an OKUMA LB3000EX-MY. We had a tech come up a couple months ago because our turret had sustained enough small impacts over the last 5 years that the y-axis casting actually moved out...

    Re: Help with Spline profile generation

    Easy for someone who deals with gears all day, I'm sure. That, I am not.
    We don't need any special accuracy.
    There is nothing to show, it is a hole in the end of a shaft with a spline callout,...

    No no no...the video demonx posted explains how to use assembly mode the proper way. If you're not familiar with it, you should learn it. It has a HUGE number of benefits.

    Is anyone here using CIMCO Edit to edit programs for a Citizen Swiss machine? We purchased Win-CNC from Citizen but it has never worked right and they have basically refused to do...
  21. Re: IS THERE AN ID GROOVE CANNED CYCLE FOR CITIZEN L20

    I'm not really sure what you're trying to do. You say you have to make an ID groove, but you're using a boring bar? If you essentially just want a roughing cycle like on a conventional lathe, you can...
