Thanks you so much for your help !

Re: Post Processor - NX CAM

hi bro

my I ask what is your post processor that could have a G code like this ?

I dont know how to exchange I J K with only one R for radius parts .

Re: Post Processor - NX CAM

Re: "R"instead of "IJK":

Go into "Program and toolpath" -> Motion -> select "circular move"

delete the I, J and K words

in the "drop" list to the right of "Add word" - select "R" -> "R - Arc Radius" (might be named slightly differently depending on "controller" template used to create the post, and if you have a lot of words, you might have to click on "more" to see it).

I know I saw code somewhere for setting +/- depending on if more than 180 degrees or not, but I don't remember where.  If you need this (and can't find it) you can use mom_arc_angle to calculate it.

Using in R for radius more than 180 deg.


# This command negates the value of radius when the included angle
# of an arc is greater than 180.
# ==> This comamnd may be added to the Circular Move event for a post
#     of Fanuc controller when the R-style circular output format is used.

   global mom_arc_angle mom_arc_radius

   if [expr $mom_arc_angle > 180.0] {
      set mom_arc_radius [expr -1*$mom_arc_radius]

I had problem with opening the post builder at the first then I fixed it and saw those items you said

my post's totally fixed and we are using the G code properly

thanks a lot
