Im using MastercamX to program my lathe. When it posts out the first rapid movements, they are posted on the same line. That can be dangerous, especially when using a tailstock. There is a place to check a box in Mastercam to post them out seperate, but it doesnt work. Do I need to change my post? Any help would be great.
First of all I'm not an expert at this, I've modified a couple of posts. I would check a couple of things. I assume the check box in mastercam that you are refering to is under misc values. If they don't work from there you can edit your post and set the default in it, by searching for the value. The first column is mi1 thru mi10 (misc integers), the second column is mr1 thru mr10 (misc reals). Search your post for example find mi1 there is usually a default setting for it like 0 for off or 1 for on, change that and save your post then make your g code again and see if that changed it.
Another way is to break up the lines, once again you will have to search thru your post to find where those lines are created.
pcan1, pbld, n$, *sgcode, pwcs, *sgabsinc, *xout, *yout, *p_out, *s_out, *speed, *spindle, pgear, strcantext, e$
pcan1, pbld, n$, *sgcode, pwcs, *sgabsinc, *xout, *yout, *speed, *spindle, pgear, strcantext, e$
pcan1, pbld, n$, *p_out, *s_out, e$
that would create 2 lines of g code where it was all on 1 line before.
Just make a backup copy of your post before you start changing things, so you can always go back to what you had originally.
