  1. Re: I have V25 producing good code for Siemens 808D Advanced

    Sharing the struggles, failures, and successes is something I'm always happy to do and even happier to hear if it's helped someone else have a few less struggles ;)

    I watched a few videos of the...

    Re: Bobcad v31 Post issues mach3

    Looking closer at the code, it just looks a little weird. The arc moves have a very large radius (230) and a relatively small chord length with a weird 0.0029" linear move in between them. I think...

    Re: Bobcad v31 Post issues mach3

    Is it pausing on each line of code or does it seem like it is choking because it is processing too many lines of code?

    Re: Top of part value in PP?

    I was digging around today in the documentation for V31 and stumbled upon this API call today.

  5. Re: OT I've been a bit busy with other things.

    Greetings Rob! I have the programmable coolant on a few of machines, I'll try to check that out tomorrow. It is painfully slow and you can hear the pump "dead head" when it comes on if it has been...
  6. Re: OT I've been a bit busy with other things.

    It's good to see you and thank you for the kind words old friend. I don't really use many forums at all these days other than Facebook to keep up with local friends, it seems that's the only way...

    Re: Multi Axes

    I've demoed the BobCAD multi-axis and if you encounter (or expect to encounter) a lot of this you're going to find the additional toolpaths invaluable. I have them in my "other" software and I use...
  8. Re: I have V25 producing good code for Siemens 808D Advanced

    Wow, nice! That doesn't look like an easy piece to make. I take it you are happy with the new VMC!
  9. Re: OT I've been a bit busy with other things.

    It sounds like you've had a lot going on. Very sorry to hear about your Father, I could only imagine the loss. I'm glad it sounds like you've weathered most of the storm and came through upright. ...
  10. Re: Simulation Pro - Setting up the Machine Definition

    To setup a collision pair is also fairly straight forward. To add collision checking for this setup, simply add a CC pair between your tool and the components you absolutely don't want to cut!
  11. Re: Simulation Pro - Setting up the Machine Definition

    Hey Shaun, I'm replying a bit late on this of course and I hope you got it figured out. I interpreted your question about the vise jaws to mean how do I open and close the jaws for a more accurate...

    Kinda crude but literally just programming a space if necessary (you can see I added one after PRINT above):

    You can play with default_add_spaces but sometimes it doesn't really do...

    I don't have V28 but if I recall my V27 simulation didn't run the tap cycle correctly. It read the IPR as IPM and would be super slow if you were running in "Time"...

    Re: Modifying Post

    The quote variable is what you want to use.


    "[","PRINT ",quote,"CHECK THE HIGHLIGHTED LINE IN THE PROGRAM TO VERIFY",quote,"]"

    That should do the trick!
  16. Re: Having problems with Cutter path not completing cut (PICS)

    Are you using any kind of tool containment strategy? If so, make sure it is properly projected while on a tilt. Sometimes it helps rotating the view in the workspace to look at the part the same...

    Re: Mastercam Planes

    I think I know exactly what you are asking. I've struggled with this for a bit in the two different CAM systems I use. I believe the origin for your "tilt" planes (T/C) makes no difference in the...

    Absolutely! It's saved me a broken tool and an oopsie more than once. I love Predator and it backplots multiaxis just as well.

    Knowing it and remembering it are two things, lol. Good call that's the easiest way to be certain which control definition you are using. Thanks for the reminder, I've been doing it the hard way!

    Great videos all! It's easy to forget the Top of Job and Bottom of job settings. There are numerous ways to contain your geometry, I choose the most logical first and if there is no logical choice I...

    Hi Daniel, try running the function "Reorganize" on your geometry after opening/merging in the dxf. It's also possible when exporting from Solidworks it is converting your arcs into segments. Check...

    Re: Boundaries

    It looks like you are using a "stock aware" operation (Advanced/Adaptive Rough, Z level rough, etc.)

    In short, BobCAD looks at the geometry you want to machine, sees all that stock (in shaded...

    Re: Profile cut for mold?

    Sorry I didn't get back for a while. Awesome, it's not to bad to adust the path for the tool you have if the radius doesn't matter.
