that is great information, hadn't though if that!  I'm using Camworks.

Saw the video, looks awesome! my simulation looks pretty much identical so it should make it as accurate as possible.  mach accepted it and ran it same as simulation so i know i have a viable starting point of how the code should look, now just need to go through all of the settings in the UPG and keep tinkering with them until they spit out the appropriate code.  You are the friggin man and I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help on this!  I wrestled the same thing while  straightening out the post for the mill, but eventually got it working flawlessly.  Unfortunately I know infinitely less about lathes and lathe code so it is a bit of a learning curve.  I am making models of all of my tool holders and inserts so it has accurate geometry to use in it tool path generation, unfortunately it doesn't have anything preloaded for tiny tools like I am using..lol

I will work on it some more tonight when i get home and see if i can make heads or tails of anything!  Again, thank you so very much for your help!

Best Regards!

Here ya go, I attached the parts file in a zip folder.  Thank you so much for your time and effort!! hopefully I can get this post nailed down, if so I will be happy to share it!

My Best Regards!

that would be awesome, what format would you like and where would you like it sent?

Thank a TON!

was wanting to see what tool changes and such would look like as well, more like what a cam package would output for mach3.  I will dig around some more and see what i can find.

Hey guys,

I am trying to develop a post processor to use on a lathe and was wondering if anyone would mind turning a part into gcode for me so i could see what correct code output looked like..  I have been battling this for a few days and haven't  gotten it nailed down yet.  i have been able to get mach3turn to accept the file without error but the toolpath looks all wrong.

Would anyone mind making some code to help me out?

I have the part file in solidworks but could easily send it via DXF or any other format really, just want to see some solid code so i can edit the universal post generator to output the same..  I did it for my mill but I had other cam software at the time to help guide me along the way to what it was supposed to look like.. for the lathe I have bubcus..

Thanks in advance!!

It outputs I and J but I do not see any K in anything it spits out, and in the post editor there is no 90.1 or 91.1 available to insert and if manually entered it reverts them to G90 or G91 respectively.

My Sheetcam output I,J,K but not this one for some reason?

Did you ever resolve this?  In fighting the NC and NO prove touch plate issue myself and wondered about this scenario if I used two NC probes how far off it would be.  I imagined a stiffer spring in the touch prove may some but that didn't seen like a great idea for sensitivity and might add deflection to the stylus.

Would love to hear your solutions!

I meant the cam software/fanuc post software, sorry for the confusion...
