    Default Uploading to Biesse

    Hey, this may be a dumb question but, I have a Biesse Rover B 7.4 Ft. And I just got a postprocessor from Bobcad for it. The post out puts the file as NC and the machine reads ISO and BPP. So I was wondering how do i upload a NC file and convert it to an ISO or BPP file so that my machine can read the file

    Hey just wondering how you are making out . we just are in the midst of installing a 2008 7.40 rover B FTK
    We had upgraded to version 30 last month but are considering mastercam ... lot more money but maybe we should give bobcad a fair shot at the business yet the seem too want $900.00 for the post which I had thought posts were free but guess not for a biesse machine

    My guess is that the .nc is the same as ISO, so editing the post processor to change the file extension may be all you need to do.

    You see every time I try to run one of the iso files I have through BiesseWorks I get a pop-up that say "unexpected file format". And now I am stumped. The manual clearly says that the machine is capable of running iso files I just don't understand why I am getting that message

    I'm pretty sure all i should have to do is what Ger21 said which is simply change the file extension to .iso. but my Biesse doesn't seem to want to read any iso files.

    You might have to run it through Biesseworks or something like that??
    I've never used a Biesse, so don't really know.

    ok I will prob end up buying a post from Bob cad had the mastercam guy out yesterday and for the simple drawings I do Bobcad has nicer and faster features . example drawing and angled line took him at least 4 times longer... and the software costs much more
    I have an old c53 thermwood I am currently using. and am looking for someone to train me on the biesse . I have the local biesse dealer scheduled to come out Dec 27, but if we find somebody sooner would be great
    Its gona be a learning curve to switch , but from my research Biesse is a common machine here in Ontario where I am

    umm.... sorta. i'm still working on learning how to read and set up Biesse code but it seems that the post they gave me is close to what i needed. But if youre looking for outstanding customer service i wouldnt go with BobCAD. I've been having trouble getting ahold of someone as well

    Ive sorta hit my frustration limit with bobcad on the posting side
    I can post a code that works but it still has lots of quirks and needs to be edited manually yet
    and does moves in the rapid that are not required also the feeds and speeds don't listen at all , spindle speed does but not machining speed
    Bobcad I guess hasn’t developed a post that works properly wish they would have told me so
    we will move in another direction I guess

    What are you trying to cut? Table? Cabinet?
    Can you post sample code?
    sounds like feeds and speeds are out of the range of speed parameters you have set in BobCAD. In CAM Tree right click "CAM Defaults". Click "Current Settings" Select in the "Make" selection box your Biesse post name, then edit machine parameters from there.

    we do pvc sheets into exterior trim columns etc mostly straight lines and curves
    changing the seeds in the parmeters doesn't do it
    I have to do it in the tool settings and if I enter .6 for cutting feed rate it converts it in the post to 15 which biesse than reads as meters per minute ,
    so like I say there is quite a few quirks you have to learn to work with and what to enter so it comes out the correct number and this bobcad should be doing for me
    But its obvious the are still learning themselves it takes a long time for them to respond and longer yet to fix it , if they can fix it I don't know
