    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!

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

    Re: Predator locks up with G73 and G83 Codes!

    While we're on this subject. We've added a fourth axis to our Haas VF-3SSYT and have been unable to make Predator display the A-Axis moves. Can anyone point us in the right direction? SBC Cycle? Thanks.

    Re: Predator locks up with G73 and G83 Codes!

    Burr thanks. Yep, already tried that, but we do not get any rotation in predator (see "Backplot Screen Shot.docx"). I've attached a .zip file containing "4axvmill.mch", "0004 ADR-02609-021.02.nc", "Backplot Screen Shot.docx" and "Fanuc0.rp5" files. It's possible we have made some changes to "4axvmill.mch" and possibly the "Fanuc0.rp5" controller file trying to get this to work. If help is much appreciated.

    Ok, we got Predator working with the 4AXVMILL.MCH and FANUC0.RP5 files. Question - Is there any documentation for the .MCH files? We have the documentation for the reverse post files, "Reverse Post Reference Manual", but I haven't found any documentation that explains the .MCH files.
