Long time reader, not often poster.
Were running a project where we want to engrave 4 places in a fixture
Than making the next part engrave 0002 in 4 places.
The run over time will number in the thousands so going to the line and replacing the text after the ( would be a drag.
Search and replace does not recomend the comments so that seems out.
Any of you rocket Science types have a plan?
I am suspecting a Macro may accomplish this but have not had the pleasure.
the machine is a 2002 3016 with 4th axis.
we also have a VMC 20 and 30 20 with a Seimens 840d.
need to run this in the 4th axis machine.
any help appreciated
serializing is part of the L92 canned cycle.
if you want to engrave "0001" 4 times then on the next part engrave "0002" 4 times all you have to do is use 4 seperate L92 cycles and all would cycle the number at rewind for the next part.
i don't have a manual close but i think it's the R+4 in the line that sets serialization
