General Mach Discussion / Re: using boring bar in Machturn
« on: February 09, 2008, 10:59:06 AM »
Thanks for the tips guys, I have to bore a 3.0 inch deep bore so I imagine I am going to run into some flex in the boring bar. This is in cast acryilc stock so hopefully it will cut easier than say steel. I won't be able to give it a go until monday so I'll see how it goes.

Well the type I am refering to , are held in the tool post and the workpiece in the headstock. I think Chip helped me understand the procedure to do the tool offsets. Time will tell.

How do I setup a boring bar?  I have a QCTP and would like to do some internal countouring on a few parts. Do I just set it up as additional tool in the tool table? What things do I need to watch to make it work?

 ;D Can't thank you enough Chip. I was starting to wonder if mabey all this CNC stuff was beyond my comprehending it. You have been a great source of help and My goto enforcer( junk yard dog) with Bob-cad tech support. I'm glad your on that task cause they just brush me off as a newby dummy. Ha Ha. Looking forward to getting after it again monday. I'll post some pics of the parts I'm now sucessfully making.

General Mach Discussion / Mach 3 lathe post for Bob-Cad v22
« on: January 25, 2008, 04:48:14 PM »
Is there anybody out there in the whole world using a post processor in Bob_Cad lathe v22???? I have downloaded the mach 3 lathe post from Bobcad but it doesn't generate useable g code. I thought I would ask here if anybody out there is running this software and if they have either had a post written or come across one that works. The only cutting I have done in mach 3 is using the wizards, they work, I just wish I could use my drawings in Bob- Cad to generate some usable code. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o :'(
