I cannot get my offsets to work in my machine on the dia. of the end mills.
I have 88HS SYS95 Format 1
I am in the offsets menu and go to 2nd page is the tools. I can select the correct tool number and change the lenght no problem there. It is the diameter that will not change to something that makes a difference.
I have a part and I messed up the contour just .040 .. I just simply want to tighten up the contour around the part to erase the mistake. The end mill is .500 ... I set the offset dia. to .4400 and it still just cuts the same path as before.
The program was setup with MasterCam. I know there is a box under parameters that defines the computer, machine, no wear, ..... ( something like that anyway ) .. but I always thought that it was assumed you will be using a .500 if you tell it you are using a .500 and all measurements would be based from there. The machine would be .500 unless you had a reshapen end mill that measured .4900, and you put in .4900...
