We are trying to get up to speed with MCX for a multi axis turret lathe we have coming. Axis are X,Y,Z,C1,B(sub motion). Sub has orientation but no C. I was messing with some of the generic posts we have and there is a couple for multi axis. One is advanced 2-2, and the other is advanced 2-4. I have no idea what the difference is just yet but neither seemed to support the sub spindle. Just wondering if there is any generics that support a sub that we may not have? The control is fanuc based Hitachi. Seicos LIII I believe.
If we just add sub functions in the machine def manager, what would we need to do to post correctly? We have changed things in posts but not wrote our own and I think that might be too time consuming.
