Hello! I'm searching for a solution to output  more than 3 decimal places in XYZ-coordinates in post.

My coordinate-output allways is rounded to 3 decimal places. The adresses IJK I'm able to output 5 decimal places.

 

In postbuilder I have set it:

 

2017-04-06 16_40_22-I__NX10_windows64_MACH_resource_library_machine_installed_machines_cam_g550_post.png

 

What's wrong?

 

Thank you for your help.

In Post Builder:
- "Machine Tool" tab

- General Parameters

- What is "linear motion resolution" set to?

 

NOTE: for lathes where you want diameter output, there is another issue as well, but I don't want to confuse things too much...

Hey Ken! Great! This is the solution. "linear motion resolution" must be 0.00001

Sometimes I'm so blind...

 

Thank you.
