    Re: Can't See Selection Window Boundary

    Hey Lakeside,

    Thanks.

    So, is this something that has affected all the versions of BCC running on Win 10?

    Is there a fix?

    Is your version working OK now?

    Can't See Selection Window Boundary

    Howdy,

    I have been using BobCAD ver. 24 for several years. I just upgraded to V29 and I'm running it on a new HP Omen laptop running Win10 Home (64 bit).

    I'm finding my way around the new...

    Re: Fagor 8020P error messages

    Howdy,

    I see its been a month, but I thought I'd answer up. Hopefully, you're gotten going by now.

    Anyway, Error 105 is a PITA error code. According to the F8025 manual:

  4. Re: How Do You Edit The BCC PP To Get Line Numbering By 2's or 5's or 10's????

    Hi Mike,
    It's a Fagor 8025M control.
    We got the machine moving and doing basic milling ops (profile, face, pocketing).
    Now, it's just the endless PP tweaking to get all the other various...

    Awesome! Thanks.

    I've used BC for years, but I've never used it to CAM a part. I use a different CAM software that works much easier for normal stuff I do. But, I have a buddy that is trying to...
  6. How Do You Edit The BCC PP To Get Line Numbering By 2's or 5's or 10's????

    Howdy All,

    I am used to a PP posting out Gcode with line numbering increasing by 2, 5, or 10 number "jumps".
    For example:
    N0010 xxx
    N0020 yyy
    N0030 zzz
    I find this really helpful if I need...

    Hi Mike,

    Well, I just went down to the shed with the bathroom scale. I weigh 223lbs and when I held onto the headstock and stepped on the scale it read 337. So, the headstock alone is 114lbs. I...

    Re: Fagor 8020ms with Windnc

    Awesome Arron! I'm glad that worked and got the machine moving.

    The next step is to do what you were already seeking...... getting a post processor that writes out Gcode that the control can...

    Re: Fagor 8020ms with Windnc

    No, once you get the post processor set up for the type of operations you want to do (like single spindle first), then you can just feed drawings into it and the code should come out ready to run. ...

    BTW, here is a very simple program to try to load onto the control, just to see if it will load and to try to move the machine.

    OK. That helps a bit.

    Well, the first problem is BobCAD. I use BobCAD for my CAD software - but that is it. Dealing with BobCAD-CAM beyond that is frustrating and useless - at BEST!

    Hi Arron,

    Sure. Here is a small program that I have for the Fagor 8025M. It should load on your F8020 machine.
    Don't try an run it though - this is for a 4ft x 8ft router. So, some of the X &...
  13. Re: Anyone Want These??? Hardinge DSMA Headstock & Bed

    Thanks Ian!

    I'd really like to see it go to someone that can use it - instead of it just getting melted down.

    The big problem is the weight. It just costs so much for shipping.

    Anyway, I...

    Howdy All,

    Just wondering if anyone wants these. I have the headstock and bed from an old Hardinge DSMA automated turret lathe.

    They are in decent shape. The headstock seems tight.

    Re: Fagor 8020ms with Windnc

    Hi Arron,
    Those Error 34 Strange Character codes can be caused by many different things. It's like a "catch all" code for errors that Fagor doesn't have any other error code for.
    Anyway, when I...

    Arron,

    Were you able to figure this file transfer problem out?
    If so, what was the problem?
    Just curious.
    Thanks.

    Hi Mike,

    That's an interesting one! My 1st thought is that an encoder is messed up - but that would not explain why BOTH axes have the same issue. That tends to point to something COMMON between...
