Re: How to machine open / extended pockets?

Thank you, Thorsten. That is a solution that works for now. I use the superglue method all the time. I would prefer not to cut too much air, though, but for this part it is not too much of an issue. I like, that I can use adaptive and don't need any dressups. Thanks for your help. Take care Sebastia...

Re: How to machine open / extended pockets?

Thanks, Thorsten! That is sort of close to what I need. There is a special dificulty with this part, though. The Operation is somewhat of a combination of profiling and pocket. What makes it tricky, is, that there is no possibility to define toolpaths by vertical faces. This would allow to machine p...

Re: How to machine open / extended pockets?

Do you mind including that file for testing? Not at all. AL_BearingBlock125.FCStd Note that the change is for Pocket, not for Adaptive. Do you think it is tough to implement for Adaptive, as well? I need to dig though the sourcecode, again. It has been a while since I touched it last time. Where wo...

Re: How to machine open / extended pockets?

Thank you for the answer, chrisb. Dogbones do not seem to work with 2D adaptive, right?

How to machine open / extended pockets?

Hi Folks! I am having a hard time trying to find a solution here. I want to machine a Pocket with two open sidewalls. I use 2D adaptive clearing for that, but I cant find a way to tell Path to break through the sidewalls. It is hard to explain, so I attach a picture. PATHOpenPockets.png Any Ideas? A...

Re: Where to insert code to issue G4 command after spindle start?

Okay - With a little massaging of the GRBL postprocessor I finally got a version that works for me, which I have attached. * I added a --spindle-wait option to give the spindle some time to get up to / change speed. * I also added a --stop-on-zero-rpm option to replace spindle start with 0 rpm by sp...

Re: Where to insert code to issue G4 command after spindle start?

So even Probe,s and dragknive's(which is a shearing operation) should have a spindle direction with a speed of +0(M3) or -0(M4) the post can act different if tools are found with 0 spindle speed. You have a point there. I changed my postprocessor in a way that it can filter out M3/M4 with zero spin...

Re: Where to insert code to issue G4 command after spindle start?

Okay, so I investigated this a bit further. Since Feeds and speeds are determined by the tool controller, it makes sense, that the tool controller issues the spindle start command. I have had some success changing the postprocessor in a way, that it includes the G4 Command after spindle startup and ...

Re: Where do print() statements from a postprocessor go?

Ahhh sorry. I found it.
They go to the "output window" in case anyone else is looking for it.

Where do print() statements from a postprocessor go?

Good morning all. How I can see the output of print() statements from inside a postprocessor on the python console? Or the other way round: what would be the prefered way to write output to the python console from a post processor? It is just for playing / investigation whats going on inside. Thanks!
