Looking for "the" answer. This is to be used on a Haas Mini Mill.
Objective: to hold spindle stationary, but to use the X,Y and Z axis to cut with auxiliary electric spindle. Want to use post generated by SurfCam to control table movement.
Tried: M19 "spindle orientation" inplace of Sxxxx M03.
Movement OK till "Can" cycle line. Then error 186 basically stating spindle not turning.
Just trying to avoid having to long hand write a program without the can cycle because in hole drilling a peck of 2 tenths for .110 deep is needed, muchless the profiling required.
I know it's the can cycle stopping me, however I have seen a Fadal and a large Taiwanese mill do this very thing with a auxiliary spindle.
Any help will be very much appreciated, thanks in advance.
