1. ## programming radius/ help needed

Ok guys, im toiling here with how to write the programm for this radius, currently ive got the tool sitting at the 17.8mm length, but im stuck from there.

Any ideas?

By the way im using mazatrol and not EIA/ISO

Cheers

2. whoops, heres the drawing

3. Use your convex or concave options to do this.

4. Yes i know but i need to figure the start and end point, im new to programming

5. Let's start where you left off.

Concave Start X=18.5 Z=? Finis X=18.0 Z=27(34-7) Rad=20
Center X=58(20*2+18) Z=27 Intersect = up & right
Concave Start X=18. Z=27 Finis X=18.5 Z=? Rad=20
Center X=58(20*2+18) Z=27 Intersect = down & left

Hit Calculate It should give you the endpoint. I program in quadrant since the dimension is given, I found it easier. But you can program in one line.

Check Shape see they calculate it right.
Hope it will help

6. Cheers buddy, will give that a try.

Your start from the left end (in inches)
