Is it possible to use a 3-axis-mill (xyz) PP for the milling part of a mill turn post, if my mill turn lathe has a physical y-axis (it can be interpolated)? I can see sinumerik_840D_millturn doesn't support 3-axis-millturn (xzc) in NX Postbuilder. Could 3-axis mill be an alternative? I'm using NX Postbuilder 8.0.0.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Post Builder does not currently allow the creation of a template post for a S840D xzc mill (with or without a yaxis) and a S840D lathe. You may want to use the generic template for an xzc mill and link it to a S840D lathe and then add the appropriate S840D functions to the xzc mill. Be sure to set the Y axis ON on the parameters page..
