help with tapping please
« on: May 11, 2007, 03:21:15 AM »
 Hi everybody,
                   I am new to MACH3. I have used NCCAD7 for my wabeco ccf1210 high speed mill and have recently changed to a controller for MACH3.
I have one question: I am trying to do a base plate for my mill. I need a subroutine that : turns on spindle CW   . Gives instruction for a z depth at a given feedrate.Then stops the spindle. Then spindle CCW and z up with the same feed. Is that possible with Gcode without having to write the routine 100 times?(I need to drill 100 holes-threads at a given rectangular grid)
   Can anybody help?

 Best regards,

                   Biz

Hello all. New to this. I also have a 1210 with the KOSY software and was thinking of changing to MACH3 as I do not find the KOSY much fun. What was involved?
