can some one look at this code for me
« on: July 19, 2009, 12:16:26 PM »
Can someone take a look at this code for me? I am trying to proof it, but all I am getting on my screen is a straight line for the tool path.It should be kind of a bullet shape. I cant find anything wrong that I can think of. This is a lathe program so if anyone wants to see if they can find my error. its driving me bonkers.

You have no Y axis moves in that file - only X and Z.

Hi, Ray

It's lathe G code it wouldn't/shouldn't have "Y" move's anyway, I've run across this before, Just can't remember the issue was at the moment.

Line 276 has a move to Z-8487 and line 338 has Z-2807, you must have a big lathe or you missed out a decimal point  ;D

Here is the XML file for my simulator computer. it is set up just as it loads because I do not run a machine on this computer. but I do have the same problem at the machine. Looks like I need to flip the finsh pass arc around but it does look the way I thought it should.
any help on what the problem is will be appreciated.

Ahhh, thanks. I knew it must have been something little in there , but I just couldn't find it. added the decimal points and made the radius negative and it looks correct now. Thanks a lot. I

Hi, CB

I think the X's Should normally be -X Values, If you have a dxf of this could you post it.

Thanks, Chip

well I see your point as to why they should be negative X values. But I set my lathe up so they are positive. Just easier for me to think about it in terms of positive diameters rather than where the tool path is on the axis. I take it most people do it the way your suggesting?
