on my Milltronics mill using cutter comp, a 4x4 square with X&Y in the center with 1/2 endmill will show 2.25 on the screen when moving around the part.
my attempt to use cutter comp with .09 kerf on oxyfuel torch did not display 0.045 over on straight cuts but the part was within 32nd of right.
program went as
G42 G1 F20.
M00 was to turn on and off oxygen,
on the tool page I entered 0.09 in the size box of the tool page but no other entries. I am wondering if comp took effect or not? the part was closer to size than parts prevously torched without G42 line. does there need to be more info programmed to make it work or does it not display the offset?
PS: the more you learn the less you really know.
