I have been working with a 2008 Mag-Fadal 4020 with a Fanuc 0i-MC control. The control features Manual-Guide-i for programming and simulation. Since we program using CAMWorks, we don't use MGi to program. We are, however, interested in learning to use the simulator to help with part proofing before cutting. My question is this.
MGi uses proprietary codes to define things like stock size and work offset location. Is it possible to load those codes into a program that I have produced using CAMWorks, and still have the control on the machine read them in and create an appropriate display? I can modify my CAM software to do this automatically, but I don't know if the control will read the information correctly. Does anyone have enough experience with MGi or with this particular situation to advise?
Thanks ahead of time!
