    Re: Masterwood unload workpiece management

    If your running an old Masterwood, your best option would be to split the code with an 'IF' statement.
    #100=0 (front=0, back=1)
    IF #100=0
    (insert front half of code)
    IF #100=1
    (insert back...

    Re: Passing arguments through layered macros

    Thanks Deadlykitten for the long winded answer. I am very aware how to code and how linear progs are more processing power efficient than parametric etc, and how variables are used .. I am merely...

    Passing arguments through layered macros

    Exploring the NCT Faunc based controller we have now and im trying to get my head around macros. I understand how they work and how to pass an argument though. However while it is probably not...
  11. Re: Coding problem - where have I gone wrong

    Ok don't worry - I have resolved my dilemma. The code structure has to be much more specific than what ive been using for the last 5 years - MW309. Hope this helps anyone else with a similar issue in...
  12. Coding problem - where have I gone wrong

    Hi all, we recently got an old masterwood 327 retrofitted with an 'NCT 204' controller. It still has alot of work, but the basics are functioning. Ive been writing parametric programs to perform the...

    Masterwood 365 customisation

    can anyone who uses a Masterwood 365 give a little insight as to the ability to to access the machine parameters and settings. basically i find almost every area of the machine password locked - and...
  14. Re: Can anyone tell what these do? Masterwood P327

    yeah the one i have doesnt have them either - this is trying to help a worker in the business looking at another secondhand machine. i assume their just pins - they should retract before a cycle...
  15. Re: Can anyone tell what these do? Masterwood P327

    oh where's the fun in giving all the information, have a guess, lol.

    thanks - i forgot to attach the picture.
  16. Can anyone tell what these do? Masterwood P327

    On the Masterwood P327 (and many other machines) you have locator pins (vertical) to position the work piece in the designated field of work.

    Can anyone tell me what these are and how they should...
  17. Re: MasterWood 365 5axis - Masterwood Opinions

    yeah i think we need someone to come do the whole thing. now the problem is - is apparently MW australia doesnt want to help because we didnt purchase the machine through them. so essentially we are...
  18. Re: MasterWood 365 5axis - Masterwood Opinions

    Put them online? rather large upload. I found on the beckoff website they have everything available to download (which is a win finally)
    source data for Master AT and masterworks? what do you mean?...
  19. Re: MasterWood 365 5axis - Masterwood Opinions

    honestly your first comment is irrelevant.

    no OS came with the machine, only the beckoff CDs for the TWINCAT system.
    operating manuals are useless because until it actually works, i cant learn...

    Machine still isn’t going. But I’ve noticed there’s no software CAD to do anything. The master wood software is laughable at best. I’m considering solidworks and or fusion but I’ll croaa that bridge...
  21. Re: MasterWood 365 5axis - Masterwood Opinions

    Wait... so the Project 365 has no CAD software? Masterworks 316? Or is that a waste of space? And is Master AT just to load the job? What would be the best cad software for it? Solid works?
  22. Not sure though usually big brand Cncs use their...

    Not sure though usually big brand Cncs use their own cam software as there’s lots of pre defined settings specific to the machine. You would need to find or write a post processor to convert the code...
