What is G40.1?

Should I remove it?
2  G-Code, CAD, and CAM / G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Runn Error Line 2 on: February 29, 2012, 12:59:59 PM
Hi guys I'm getting a Run Error Line 2 unspecified failure.
It is stopping on the line for spindle start.

I can hit any key on the key board and it will start the program but the spindle
dose not start.

When the program starts  running a VB scipt editor box appears,
The word DoSpinCW()

I have been generating code with the same cam software for about 5 years
and this is just started happening.

Here is a piece of the code

Thanks for any help

Graham could have a little more of your time?
Iíll be cutting my parts next week and I have a few more
questions.

I done a test run and the code repeats perfectly
but I need to split it up.

The code is setup to cut one part and move the part out of the way
and bring the tool down so my wife can reach the draw bar to change
the tool.

Itís moving the part out of the way and bring the tool down 8 times,
can we make it only do that after the last part is cut?

Take a look at the code, Iíll point out the part that needs to be run
after the last parts is cut.

Also there will be 2 tools for this job, how would the code look for
tool # 2?

If you would like you can use the code for tool #1
and repost it for tool#2 as an example. 

I would like you to explain the code so I can do this for myself
next time.

I have a Tormach mill and I didnít see a G52 or a P2 in the G/M code table.
What does the G52 /P2 mean or stand for?

Some times the machines are cheap enough that I would be willing in gut entire
system motors, PLC's etc and start from scratch.

Just a 4th axis for one of these machines can cost $2000-$3000 used and if the controls
hasn't be configured for a 4th axis it can cost big bucks just to up grade.

From time to time I run across a VMC like a Haas,Fadal, Mazak  at actions.

They are sold as is where is and I don't want to fall prey to some ones
proprietary controls.

Has anyone retrofitted a commercial VMC with a tool changer with Mach?

I hope I've posted this in the right place.

Hi guys it's been some time since I've post here.

The code for cutting a part that I've done many times
for my customer. It has 2 tools and I've been cutting them 1 at a time
for a few years now.

My customer placed a order for 200 parts and now I'm building
a fixture to do 8 at a time.

The code that I'm post is for tool 1 and here's and example
of how I have done other code in the past.
A lot of copy and pasting.

Is there a simpler way?

The parts are 2" apart in the X.
