Sim. Threading in Turn .008
« on: September 17, 2008, 01:20:11 PM »
:)
Threading cycles could be simulated in earlier versions of Turn. With the new changes in .008, this no longer works.
Is there a way to simulate a threading cycle with .008 ?
Or am I overlooking something ?
Thanks,
RC

in what way do you mean simulating? If you are meaning the simulation button for time that works for me. If you are meaning pressing start  on your desk computer and running through the code then mine runs but is very slow because no spindle feedback but its always been like that as far as I remember.

On the desc computer.
It used to run the simulation at whatever RPM was set in the wizard or in the hand written G76. Now it is slow like you say. WAY slow. The DRO's for the angled infeed move about .0005" per second with a RPM entry of 1000.
Guess the new index sampling sort of screwed it up a bit.

I always liked to run the through before loading it in the lathe.

I dont think its ever worked for me because it always popped up a message saying no spindle feedback. Wonder if it has anything to do with the spindle settings you used to have that it worked before for you? The way I test is just do an air cut, I feel it better to actually run through on the machine to prove the code rather than simulate on screen.

I do the air cut as well..for sure.  I'm just used to running it in the office also.
I checked and changed the settings....many combinations.
It all seemed to change with .008.

Not for me, I have never been able to sim the G76 on any version I have used, but not sure which versions I  first started trying threadiing with but was definitely previous to 3.061
Just going to load an older version and see but I am certain.

Just installed 2.53 and still it goes slow but just realised maybe the reason why. My spindle speeds are set by S1 to S8 so it would feed slow regardless LOL
 Have just tested by putting S1000 in and it is faster ::)

On second thought.....I had 2 pc's in the shop. Now I have a new one here. I was running the sim on the pc that blew up. I simulated the threading on the one at the first little lathe I built. It sits beside my desk in the shop.
Been hectic here........I was over due for a "Senior Moment" anyway.

How much faster ?  Fast as normal running on the machine ?
