so i created a 2_axis lathe machine and i'm having trouble orienting my tools in the turret, as you see in the picture below all tools are mounted vertically when i load the machine so any tool placed in pocket_1 works perfectly, however when i rotate the other tools (i click on the tool and choose ''move'', which is most likely not the way to do this) i get collision errors (due to the pocket CSYS and the Tool Tip not being mingled i guess but i'm not sure), i'd appreciate any help possible since i've been struggling with this for a while now
thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
From your image we cannot see the tool mount junctions. Here is an example showing tool mount junctions on a turrent that rotates with tools.
If you can post an image of your machine with the tool mount junctions showing it will help s understand what is happening.
On top of Paul suggestion for turning parameter tool it is essential to know:
1. The orientated based on thw defined work piece spindle coordinate system.
2. in the pockets you have a working angle to tell the system with which angle the turret brings teh tool nto working position.
Thanks Paul and Thomas, the ''specify angle'' feature solved my problem, the tools are now mounted correctly and the simulation is running smoothly
