rectangular pockets
« on: November 16, 2009, 09:14:07 AM »
Can anyone help with a few problems I have? When I call up the rectangular pocket wizard it  can load in one of two different versions, 1. shows an isometric view of the pocket and when I fill in the dimensional details it appears to work ok. 2. shows a plan view of the pocket, it has all the same dimensional details on it but it does not seem to recognise the depth steps. There does ot seem to be any way of influencing which version will come up when calling this wizard, has anyone else had this problem or am I doing something stupid?
Also if I have created a pocket with the wizard and have the G & M code and want to repeat a number of times what code should be used and what will it look like (M47 with a G52 offset or M98 with labels)? Viewing some code would help.
Thanks Mack54

The Newfangled wizard will always load the same view. However, there is a rectangular pocket wizard and one that just cuts around a rectangle, but does not pocket it all out. Are you confusing the two different screens?
