##### Double taper
« on: May 17, 2008, 12:41:14 PM »
Hello,

I am trying to program a double taper in G-code.  I am having some difficulty understanding how the angle works.  I can make one sided taper like the wizard, however I want to go back the other way like this :

<>

The decending taper would be varying in size and shape eventually but for the moment I would like to be able just to mirror the existing taper.

Thanks,

Andy

To create a taper the X & Z must be commanded on the same line :-

e.g.

G00 X5. Z1. G97 S1000 M3
G01 Z0 F.1
X15. Z-5. (produce a taper @ 45 degrees)
X5. Z-10. (and back down the other size)
X20.
G00X50. Z50.
M30

Hi Graham,

Thats great, How do I set the angle?

Thaks,

SIN of the angle.

e.g.

If taper is 20mm long @ 25 degrees included angle and the small dia is 20mm at Z zero then :-

X=20+((SIN(25/2)*20)*2)  i.e. 20+(((4.3287)*20)*2)
Z=-20

G00 X20 Z1.
G01 Z0 F.2
X28.657 Z-20.

Hi Graham,

Thanks for this however is it possible to calculate using the xstart and xend and the zstart and end, without having to know the (small?)diameter of the job?

With the wizzard for taper how does it facter the angle you imput?

Also one last question is it in radians or degrees?

Thanks,
Sorry for the questionaire

Its just basic trig.  its all in degrees, you have to have a starting point somewhere in X and Z.

You can use the biggest dia or the length and an angle. the main point is to work out half the included angle and the length, then double it for diameter.

I do not use the wizards so I can not help you with them.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the advice so far however below is my code:

How can I create an angle and control depth of cut, also when I run this it does not produce a double taper it produces an hour glass shape.  Is there any way to change this.  I am using a sherline lathe with the mach 3 sherline profile (metric).

make sure you have CV turned off in config.  CV and turning do not go well together. Set config to exact stop mode.

Thanks, however I turned that to exact stop mode and it still turnes inward rather than out.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks,

Andy

Post a picture with some dimensions of what you are trying to achieve.
