Anyone have an idea how I can add this to a Post Process? The Crusader M uses an M code for this. What I've done so far is to define m1000 and m2000 as M3 in the M woird list. (don't let that confuse you if you don't know aboyt post processing language. Dolphin named their modals after G and M. So each G modal code has a "G group" name. G1 includes G0, G1 etc. M1 includes M03, M04, and M05)
As M1 was used for the spindle, and M2 was used for coolant, I'm thinkng M3 could be used tof another modal. My question is,
"Are there specific actions within the post processor where each G or M GROUP name has a speific function? What I mean here, Are they specific, or could G2 with cirular interpolation be swapped with G1 Feed speed? Or is the G1 group specifically defined as a feed G-group?"
I ask because if that is the case, I'd need to know the M-group that my constant feed will work in.
Anyway, I'd like to make a Macro which turns the constant cutting speed (or look ahead) on and off as the control says z clear plane versus cutting/machining plane. Probably a lot of IF, Then, and Else, with a few Nulls I imagine.
Anyhow, if someone is running a post for another machine and there Post DOES spit out the proper code for constant speed cuts, could you tell me which one it is, so I can look it up and reverse engineer it?
