What needs fixed in Turn?
« on: December 31, 2009, 04:20:46 AM »
Just a thread to ask what you want fixed in Turn.
For me
CSS needs fixed
Need DRO to show tool offset number
Need Front/ Rear toolpost fixed
Need extents in toolpath fixed
Need Soft limits fixed

I am sure there are more but cant think now.
Hopefully we will get some work done to Turn this year.

CCS Number one on the list for me

I was so disappointed that it doesn't work.

These may be more general but i will list them anyway:
- Need a revised or new lathe screen set
- Manual needs to be redone / updated
- Threading - Threading diagnostics is outdated and needs to be fixed
                 - Timing not functional  ( encoder or multi slotted disc )
                 - use of an encoder ( Adavanced timing should be planned for )
- Electronic gearing / slave the Z axis to the spindle or encoder?
-Need G83 & G83.1 drilling fixed
-Need some of the turn wizards fixed / modified

I am sure there are others also so hope others comment.

My thoughts are :-

Tool nose radius comp needs major work.
X axis threading.
Offset table added in as a screen tool not an external window.
U & W added as incremental moves.
I,K & C added as automatic chamfer.
R added as automatic radius
G92 added to threading options.
G76 to use standard Fanuc 11 format as an option. E.g. G76 X(Root Dia)  Z(End Point)  I(Taper) K(Depth) D(Depth 1st Cut) F(Lead) P(Style Flank, ZigZag Etc.)
G50 to cap speed in CSS mode e.g. G50 S2000
GOTO, WHILE, IF Etc. in g-code.

That will do for starters, I am sure there are more.

WOW ! :o
No wonder it's on the back burner(s). :P
Just to echo:

1 Nose rad. comp.
2 Soft limits (rad and dia modes)
3 Front/Rear toolpost
4 Dual trajectory planner ::)

As priority....in that order...Hop to it ! :D
