Hi,
I am sorry about that! LOL.

A few years back I was sending a boat prop to a company in Albany, and I wasn't really too sure I knew where Albany was so I addressed it:

......
Albany,
Somewhere North of the Bombay Hills.

The guy I sent it to must have a sense of humour because when he sent it back he addressed it:

........
Akaroa,
Somewhere South of the Bombay Hills

Good for a laugh...he made a fine job of the prop too.

Hi,
OK I got that. There appears to be two basic toolpaths, the first a facincg routine cut to a depth of -0.5mm. Then another adadptive?
toolpath but its eventual cut depth is only -0.1mm. Your facing cut is already deeper than that????

Anyway may I suggest breaking it into two Gcode jobs. The reason is that you will be able to avoid the M6 toolchange which I bet is giving you grief. Do you
have an Auto Toolchanger?  If not try to avoid M6's.

Code: [Select]
G90 G94 G91.1 G40 G49 G17
G21
G28 G91 Z5
G90
(FACE1)
S3000 M3
G54
M8
G0 X41.921 Y3.112
G1 Z-0.5 F400
G18 G3 X40.921 Z-0.5 I-1. K0.
G1 X37.625
X5. F800.
X0.01
X-0.01
G17 G2 Y11.138 I0. J4.013

G3 Y19.165 I0. J4.013

X5.
X0.01
X-0.01
G18 G3 X-1.01 Z0.5 I0. K1.
G0 Z15.
G17
M30

As you can see I removed the toolchange and particularly the G43 tool length compensation lines. Try it..... well above the part to start with!

I stayed in Akaroa a few years ago, it's a lovely area.
Back on topic: I don't think I've ever used MDI. I'm making a new screen set and I may leave that page out altogether.
