Post Configurator CYCLE7 listing for simulation

Solution Partner Valued Contributor Solution Partner Valued Contributor

Hello to everybody,

would anyone advise me how to set the Postconfigurator view of zero-point offset shift from machine zero to simulation? I need a simulation to show a zero point shifting from the machine's zero point, but when generating it is no longer generated. Is it possible to use the $ mom_post_in_simulation function in some way? This is Heidenhain.

 

Thank you

I encountered this recently

My solution (I'm not saying it is very good) is I added a UDE to the effect of:

"Posting Output For"

with options for "Simulation" and "Machine"

Then the post does the right thing based on that UDE.

 

(could be you could use several options for simulation - Vericut, Sinutrain, IS&V, etc.)

AND WRITE A COMMENT at the top of the file, saying which one it is for :-)

You could post the offset setting into a separate *.ini file, which will be loaded form the simulation only.

Doing this the NC code you simulate is the one you send to the machine tool.

Thank you SpaceTom

Do you know how to set it up in Post Configurator to offset you to generate an INI file?

Thank you

Hello,

 

short answer is that I do not know that, as I am not an Post expert.

The OOTB Posts for Sinumerik doing that using the simulation_ini.tcl file.

For sure the syntax format between Sinumerik and TNC is different, bat least you will find all the related mom variables, which are used to output offset data.

Other solution is to output Q variables with the CYCLE DEF 7 values. Then you can output the CYCLE DEF 7 into a subprogram (for example the tool change subprog ), this way you have the output OK for the real machine and for the simulation.

 

For example:

old code:

CYCLE DEF 7.0 DATUM SHIFT

CYCLE DEF 7.1 X22

CYCLE DEF 7.2 Y33

CYCLE DEF 7.3 Z44

 

new code:

 

FN0: Q100=22 ; X Value

FN0: Q101=33 ; Y Value

FN0: Q102=44 ; Z Value

CALL PGM MYSUBPROG ; Not necesary if you use toolcall subprog.

 

then into a subprog:

CYCLE DEF 7.0 DATUM SHIFT

CYCLE DEF 7.1 Q100

CYCLE DEF 7.2 Q101

CYCLE DEF 7.3 Q102

Frank.
