So let me see if I understand this.

The G54-59 are for jig/fixture and the G52'S are for the parts mounted to
the jig/fixture.

When I was looking at the offsets page I see G54-G59.
I was under the impression that G54 would be X0 Y0
or "master part" and G55-G59 would be your clone parts
with G55 having it's X/Y offset's,G56 having it's X/Y's
G57 having it's X/Y's and so-on.

How dose G52 play into this?

Please be a pashunt, I'm still new at this.

There's no holes in my table and I'm trying
to keep it that way! :)

Hi Graham

You seperated the two hole with G54-52, the two hole are in one part mounted on a jig,
the jig has two parts on it that get the same operation.

I am into my 6th month using Mach and have come a long way
 
My question is how do you set up multiples of the same part in Mach?
 
I know how to setup tool offsets and I see the G54-G59 on the offsets page.
 
If G54 is your first part X0 Y0 then G55 must be your next part Wright?
 
 
Attached is a simple hole pattern with two hole.

Let’s say I have two parts using this pattern and part # 1 is
X0 Y0 and part # 2 is X-5.0 Y0 What would my code look like.
 
Where in the code would the G54-G55 be placed?
 
If you don't mind would you edit my code as an example.
 
Thanks

I found your post by doing a search and fix the VM bug in the post, thanks for the reply!

Hi guys

I had a row of holes to drill today and wanted try
some “deep hole drilling” in VisualMill 5.0

Mach 3 didn’t drill the holes for some reason here
is the code that VM posted.

It should have took .250 out of the hole on each pass
in the hole until max depth.
Instead it went to each hole and paused and moved to the next hole.

I modified the code and it peck drilled the holes.
This is the code I ended up using.

I know that G83 is a canned cycle for peck drilling but
what should the code look like if you wanted to choose
the amount that it takes on each peck.

I have found other bugs in the VM post processor for Mach3 and with the help of Bryan and the guys at VM
I have fixed a few as I run across then.

Thanks for your time
