Just watch you don't go over the speed rating of your spindle bearings! Most have ratings for oil, grease and oil bath. I'd check what you have then check on a bearing site like NSK or similar.

FAQs / Re: G03
« on: May 23, 2015, 03:31:43 AM »
Possibly the 90 in the first line as opposed to G90
Just a thought.
Wes
I'm having a problem with the G03 command. Straight line moves In X, Y or Z are to scale but when I try a G03, the scale seems to grow. I simplified the code to produce a circle but I still get a much bigger circle and with the wrong center.

Here is the code:

N010 G17 G20 G40 G50 90
N020 G01 X0 Y0 Z.1 F5
N040 G01 Z-.0
N050 G01 X.5
N060 G03 X.5 Y0 I-.5 J0
N080 G01 X0
N120 G01 X0 Y0 Z1

This produces a circle with a diameter of about2", with the center at about X-.5 Y0.

Anybody have any ideas what could be wrong?

It's for an Ardunio project board by the looks of it.

What about a NFS circular pocket then repeat it how ever many times you want just decrease the xy scale and increase the z each loop. Uses variables , loops and scaling all in one. When done, tool change to drill and canned cycle drill as required.

Ok TP, I knew the export was done before, I think the top ones are Art's from memory. Haven't seen any import ones, however if there better ones around we should place them into a common folder.

Thanks TP, if there is another tool.csv file( or similar) with tools already populated in it we should be able to grab the two and meld them into one big CSV. Could you point us in the right direction and we can start work on it. I've had a quick look but can't seem to find it, sorry. Maybe we can modify the import Macro to suit the Versions of Mach Tool Tables. I beleive earlier versions had a different number of tools.

Ok ,for those that are interested I have made a Macro to pull a tool table in.
The ToolsXTG.csv file resides in your C:\Mach3 folder
and you can run the macro (importTools.m1s) from the VB Editor from inside Mach3

Small note: don't put any more then 253 Entries in the CSV or it will not put them in. Tool Table limitation.
The tools.csv has a different setup then the ToolsXTG as it has Inch and Metric dimensions of the same tools.
If you use Inch use the tools.csv and make it look the same as the ToolsXTG,csv file.
If you wish to add tools into the tools.csv file and upload it here then go for it.
This is a community forum and the more tools in the file the better.
Also i Have included the Export tool table macro as well(MToolTableReport.m1s)
There are 2 other dimensions I haven't used, Wear dimensions, but if you uncomment them in the macro you should be right to go.

Just some quick Calcs
6mm 3 flute end mill in Aluminium. 0.5mm cut depth Conventional Milling
RPM = 7855
Feedrate = 298mm/min
Fine Finish
HSS Tool
Roughing
RPM =9240
Feedrate =1600mm/min

Couple of quick points.
It looks to be a 3 Series Aluminum(very soft and Malleable), and this is quite common with that grade of Aluminum.
You need to Check your Speed and Feeds(look at chip tooth loading and depth of cuts),
however I think Climb Milling may get rid of the Chip extrusion, provided you clear the chip
 path by using a brush or Air between each Cut. If you can try hooking up a blast misting arrangement, it will clear the
chips and lubricate and cool at the same time.
