    Default New Updates to madCAM

    Hi,
    Does anyone know how to implement the following new updates to madCAM in the Post Processor.
    I use Mach4.
    There are no new post processors in the update.

    I am mainly interested in G93.
    R
    egards,
    Mauri.

    • Two new variables for the post processor. "cutter_tool_list" and "machining_time". It is possible to get all cutters that are used and the total machining time listed in the output file. (3X,4X,5X and 5Xtra)
    • Post processor support for inverse time feed (G93). (3X,4X,5X and 5Xtra)

    Mauri,

    The inverse time feed can be used as below.
    :
    :
    *TOOLPATH_OUTPUT*
    TRANSFORM
    *TOOL_LENGTH_OFFSET*
    NO
    *INVERSE_TIME_FEED_MAX*
    1000000
    *INVERSE_TIME_FEED_ON*
    G93
    *INVERSE_TIME_FEED_OFF*
    G94
    :
    :
    For example, It can be used in the tool change and tool stop sections as below.
    :
    :
    *TOOL_CHANGE*
    ("toolname")
    M6 T"toolnr"
    M03 S"speed"
    G00"inverse_time_feed_on""x""y""azero"
    G01"zhome"
    *END_SECTION*

    *TOOL_STOP*
    G00"inverse_time_feed_off""zhome"
    M5 M9
    *END_SECTION*

    Joakim,
    I just cannot figure this out.
    I tried a number of combinations but it does not change F Speed for the A Axis to equal a G93 surface speed.
    Above is a sample of my sample Post Processor for my Router Table.
    I sent you an email with more data and my Test Sample as it was too big to load here.
    PLEASE correct my errors so I can make it work.
    Thank you.
    Regards,
    Mauri
