    Default 4th axis Post

    Im trying to get my 4th axis running for the fist time using 360 but all I get is errors I have updated the post to the newer version and that just made thing worse. Has any body else cracked this problem as this is driving me mad.. But this is me only guessing that its a post problem as it I can post an thing else no bother at all

    Up until now its all been very easy never need to ask any thing but this silly little thing has got my first batch of part dead in the water.

    Default Re: 4th axis Post

    are you trying to do 4th axis indexing or simultaneous 4th axis? If indexing, its super easy to just hand write it into the code. I was using HSMExpress with Solidworks which didn't include 4th axis, so I just did without and added in later to the Gcode.
