Iv'e got an old Bridgeport mill that was retrofitted with an Anilam series M back in 89. I am using Bobcad Version 17, the reason im using this cad is I bought 2 seats where I used to work and Im to damn tight to buy another cad. I ran this setup for years with good results and after a computer crash I can't seem to get the post right, Of course I didn't document any info. Im having problems with arc statements and having to edit almost everything else I try to cut. Right now my mill is set at (4800) baud rate, (even) parity, (7)bit per character, handshake (X on X off), and RS-232 device in (RS-276 format). My Cad is set up the same, in the setup tab on bobcad the cordinate values are set to (absolute), the spacing is set (on), cordinate output (modal), GO2 GO3 circular is (absolute I J), G code (non modal), Circular movements (half), these setting seem to work best but still not right. If anybody out there can make any sense out of this I would greatly appreciate any info. There might be another setting in Bobcad im overlooking.
