    Default 5 axia G code

    I run as I said above a 3+2 type set up (like a Haas Trunion Table) 5th axis. My CAM will not do "Continous" 5th axis work, i.e. like cutting a complex Turbine compressor like on a turbo charger.

    But there are CAMs out there that DO continous 5 axis, and you can run that to, IF that software does all the "Axis Translation" in the software and does not post out any Specilized Canned G-Code Axis translation tool tip offsets.

    Scott Rhino with rhinocam 2012 will output the 5 axis g codes direct to NC or text files so no need translation... Turbo vains are no problem...

    The post that he is replying to is almost 6 years old.... at that time only the 4th was both positional and live(dynamic), 5th was positional only in OneCNC.

    Now OneCNC does both positional and dynamic 4th and 5th, without having to use special CNC control translational G codes. I also have a copy of Rhino CAM, unfortunately, it is not even close to OneCNC in any way. But there is also a major difference in price since OneCNC is commercial grade shop CAD/CAM.

    This interests me... I have never been able to get a definitive answer from any CAM company on exactly whether a system can do this.
    If Rhinocam can, how do you tell it where your axes are in relation to each other? Are the rotation centre positions of the two rotaries input as variables into the postprocessor or something? Also, what configs of 5-axis layouts are supported?
