I was afraid of that Thomas.
I'd like to try it just so I can rule it out for sure with my customer. Can you point me in the right direction for getting started? Beyond setting the drop down to Python, I'm not sure how to actually make it happen.
Does anyone have any information concerning using Python to configure CSE files.
The output seems to be compiled and uneditable.
Trying to adapt a Fanuc Family controller to cope with a Mazak EIA output
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Not much - but I know that pyc's are compiled and py's are the source ones. If a py exists it will use that. As far as getting the py version - I am not sure how you can get them other than to ask GTAC. The parser used to be dll but now can be python. The parser turns G code into "metadata" that is the format that ccf/mcf need to interpret. If you have a complaint by cse about parsing - you have to modify the parser. Siemens is shipping python parsers now for okuma and fanuc. Siemens is still dll.
With NX11.0 the Python parser concept is part of the NX Help documentation.
NX11 are shiped with *.py files for TNC, Fanuc and Okuma.
