Good Morning All. I would like to thank who provides the great info within this site. Huge help from the outside looking in. Just found this site last week and have my first question.
I am not a machinist (yet). I have been working at a fab/machine facility for almost 4 years now. Started out in sales and now moved into quoting & design/eng... Also, due to my computer killer skills (lol), I have become the IT guy in our devision of the parent company. First thing was to get the floppy/hard disk drives (no USB's) working/replaced so these guys do not have to manually enter every/all the code for a program. Done & don't laugh! We have 5 CNC milling centers and two CNC turning centers here in MN. My goal is to get them conversating, hand shaking, talking and live (what ever it is called).
Daewoo Diamond Series Milling Center
Meldas Control (monochromatic screen style)
Our Daewoo's floppy drive is working fine now. The only concern we have is the controll was set to read one particular file format. I think ".txt". What I would like to know is how to switch the control of to "*.*" so it can read any file saved from BobCad, which is the software our shop uses.
Thanks in Advance,
