    I am in need of post processor examples for this machine... Do you have a decent post processor that can be used as an example to write one for MasterCam?



    PS: Look on e-bay for parts to this machine--that is where I was able to get most of my parts. The post processor, that is a whole new set of problems.
  2. G-Codes for Robotics

    Hello Everyone,

    I am Electrical Engineering student and I am willing to write my Master's Thesis on G-Code that can be used for robotics. I know G-Codes are used in 5-axis PLC & CNC machines and i have very little bit knowledge on that. The main issue of my Master's Thesis is i need to apply those g-codes or i have to know the maths involved in converting the G-Codes to general robotics program's.

No error code is recorded. Service guy was here last Thursday, as you might guess it wouldn't fail for him. Anyone had this happen?
  5. programming

    Hello All,
    New to the forum and had just a general question of dealing with a difficult environment. Recently hired on as lead programmer at a medium sized shop that does a lot of 1 or 2 part runs, usually multiple setups. The method they seem to use to prove a program is to push the green button and walk away. If it doesn't throw an alarm on the machine screen it is assumed to be ok. No dry run, no single blocking, no real checking of any kind. We don't have and won't be getting any ...
