Tilted work plane


I am trying to set up a 5-axis head type machine. I am using the OOTB sim05_mill_5ax_fanuc_in post as a starting point. For posting drill cycles with every hole on a different angle the post works perfect for outputing the tilted work plane command G68.2, but then when simulating it is wrong, when you step through the simulation it completely skips over the G68.2 command and never rotates the head.


I have watched the Tilted Work Plane video that says you need to have an MCS for every tilted work plane with them set to Local - CSYS Rotation. So I set it up that way, now the simulation works but the posted code does not, there is no G68.2 command posted.


Anyone know what I'm doing wrong or can point me in the right direction?
