    Hi guys,
    I am working with a DMG GMX250S with Heidenhain controller CNCPilot 4290 for 2.5 years now.
    Now we are going to make a new acquisition: probably a CTXgamma 1250 TC with a lower revolver.
    As this machine configuration is now possible with Siemens Shopturn 3G, I tried to test the suitability of the workshop programs. wink.gif

    (the Heidenhain is pretty good at turning, as usually you just work on only 1 contour where really everything is recorded.
    From the normal contour over undercut to the raw part update it’s all continuous when turning- when milling not sooo great.

    Oh well I just miss my Millplus Milling controller from time to time thumbs-up.gif

    Have read a lot of documents and other stuff and found an answer to most of my questions.
    But one question could not be answered:


    When finishing we often program it so that firstly we finish the different flat surfaces of one stepwave from X+ to X-.
    Afterwards the diameter from Z+ to Z- ( we do it like this due to the kind of material that we use) It’s no problem with the Heidenhain as you can finish each contour part (straight, circle etc.) separately or in a row. It’s always the same starting point.
    When wiring onto a contour with Shopmill, you can only choose between drawing and lateral movement and that for the whole contour.
    It that the contour that was programmed beforehand?

    Is there a possibility that some parts of the contour are like this and the other differently. Or do I have to have a separate contour each for that?

    Many thanks in advance

    Roman

    Hello Roman,
    I can confirm the contour display in Pilot4290: I have worked with it myself but as far as I know with Shopturn there no other possibility than constructing a single contour each.
    If anybody know more please let me know =)

    Potentially there might be the possibility to use the function ‘isolate’. But I guess it’s going to be difficult to isolate single contour elements with it.
    With ‘isolate’ you are able to define a rectangle in the machining cycle, so that only the elements in the rectangle are edited.

    HelloDMC,

    So according to that you would need to write in theory 10 raw part contours in order to isolate 10 horizontal contour elements. That’s how I know it at least from the software version 7.20.
    Well than have fun pressing the keys …. Then you can also just run the program in G Code modus,
    at least when finishing =) and roughing in the cycle.

    With best regards
