It would be possible to use this head in Nx Cam?
To make turning operations. It does the turning operation by using a servo to increase and decrease this diameter.
With this it is commanded by the U Axis, the movements are linear.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Briefly, yes (I've done it)
- define operations & tools using turning template
- MCS at hole CL, MCS +Z pointing "out" of hole
- you need to link a turning post to do the actual output (Personally, I prefer separate turning & milling posts, rather than trying to glom them together into one post, but you can glom them together if you want). Having separate posts means you have to use the HEAD UDE to change posts (I assign to Method objects in "Seed" part for the machine). Having them in one post means you have to figure out how to do it (maybe by operation type in "start of path"?)
- I typically have users program them as a series of operations

I'd rather be e-steemed than e-diseaseled
