Triton Tool Offsets

Post by Benny » Thu 25 Jan , 2007 17:30 pm

Customer Question:
Triton with Pneumatic Vise
VR CNC Milling 2.31

I am trying to set up my tool offsets for 2 different tools. My 1st tool is an 1/16" engraver bit and I have run an engraving program perfect. My second operation I would like to perform is a facing operation. I would like to use a 1/2" end mill for this. I have set up a 1/2" end mill in the tooling button as the second tool. I have also set up the z offsets for both tools from the table in the mill with a global offset of 1.5 which is my billet thickness. When I run my facing program and it gets to this line (G43 Z0.25 H02 M7) It says move limits exceeded. I have followed the setting offsets for multiple tools in the VR CMC Milling User's manual. I have also tried the technical articles on your web site, and the forums. None of it helps.

Enter as much information about your CNC hardware and software as you can - it makes it easier for everyone to know what you're talking about then.

G43 was not fully implemented - I've looked at the code and it was only available for advanced users (something that never made it to final product)
So, I suspect the G43 is the problem - do you really need to alter the tool Z offset from within the CNC program ?

What are you trying to achieve by changing the tools' Z offset ?

What is generating your CNC programs ?

Can you send the program ?

EdgeCAM 10.75

Post by goonies » Mon 29 Jan , 2007 14:05 pm

I am using EdgeCAM 10.75 which is used by Project Lead the Way to teach CAM. I am attaching two different codes that I have generated using EdgeCAM the one entitled PLTWengrave1-29-07.fnc works just fine. The one entitled facingnew.fnc stops at G43 Z0.25 H02 M7. What I don't understand is this line is in both codes and one works and one doesn't. I don't know why I am alter the Z offset, this is what EdgeCAM generated. Please help!

I don't think the attachments worked right, so I have copy the PLTWengrave1-29-07.fnc code into this post.

It seems like the G43 is causing some random problems as its not a supported G code - happens in VR Milling 5 as well.

I think your best bet is to alter the Edgecam postprocessor to get rid of the G43 command - I can't see why it would be necessary. You may need to contact them on how to do this.

I believe this (attached below) is the Denford post we supply with the F1 In Schools edgecam - might be worth a try -

That worked perfectly, that Denford post I mean, but is there any way to switch it to english for the units instead of metric??

I haven't used EdgeCAM before, so I can't help much.

Have a google for "EdgeCAM Code Wizard" seems like its some kind of easy post-processor configuration wizard.
I would have thought that you could load up the denford.mcp file somewhere in EdgeCAM, and change some settings (eg, what units to output)

another question

Post by goonies » Tue 30 Jan , 2007 16:56 pm

Why when I get to this line of code G17 G2 X12.311 Y17.759 R2.224 does virtual machine say radius: bad arc end point?

I'd need to know the previous X and Y move positions in order to see what the problem is.

Bad arc end point normally occurs because the post processor has rounded up some numbers and rounded down others.
The result is that an arc cannot be created accurately from the given start point (previous XY position), end point(G2/3 position) and radius (R).

I'm pretty sure that the later versions of VR Milling are more forgiving over arc checks, whereas version 2 milling will generate an error even if the arc end point is out by 1 micron (4 tenths")

Thanks for your help so far, I really appreciate it!

There is the code up to that line. Is there a quick fix for the post processor to mend this problem?

If you have worked out how to alter the post processor in EdgeCAM, then I would try changing it to:

1. Output arcs using relative centre points (eg, I J values) rather than just radius. eg, G17 G2 X10 Y12.5 I-2 J-3
2. See if you can change any settings to do with minimum arc size - from what I can see from your program, the post has created a tiny arc which is very nearly a straght line.

If you can make these changes, then you could also set it back to imperial units
