Thanks Craig


I have a 2 axis lathe with encoder on the spindle. I use SolidWorks/SolidCAM to generate g-codes. No problems at all. Only thing that I wasn't been able to get SolidCAM to post a simple eccentric turning program. So I guess SC doesn't support eccentric turning at all.

Question is how can I write a program to cut a piece like in the attached image?

The lathe is a retrofitted Sieg C6. Front tool post, spindle turns only CW. Very simple machine.

I use Mach4. I was doing fine with Mach4' canned cycles until yesterday. Yesterday I needed to cut a complex shape but I wasn't able to do it with Mach4 canned cycles.

I normally use SolidWorks with SolidCam but I could not find a proper post processor for Mach4. So, I need switch to another Cam software for lathe.

What Cam software should I use for lathe with SolidWorks + Mach4?

Thanks in advance,

I have a DM-26EA servo drive however I can't find an English manual for it (came with a manual in full Chinese). The drive looks identical to the ASDD-30A.


Do you think I can use the ASDD-30A manual for my DM-26EA?

OK I'm a little confused on the taper angle. Some say (half angle) 8.2971 and others say 8.1301 .

I've been reading this thread for some info and ended up with the initial settings you see in the attached image. I haven't tried it yet. Does this look OK to you?

Finally found the problem. It was the 20 cm wall type cat5 extension cable I use in the electronics box. When I remove it and connect pokeys directly to the computer (with a standard cable) everything is fine. I can't believe myself I didn't try this at first.

Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Shuttle config file location.

Yes I noticed that but I already restored the whole profile folder however shuttle none of the shuttle buttons are working.

It's not too hard to map all again but it would be nice to have them back.

I just ran and install the latest Mach4Hobby build over an old build but before I took a backup. Anyway, my shuttle pro settings are gone now. Is there a way to take just shuttle settings from the backup and move to mach4 I just installed?
