point to point drilling - no cycle

Anyone know if it's possible to drill point to pont using no cycles?

 

Kind of like teach mode, but teach mode is only in turning?

 

Like to keep it simple.

 

thanks for any input.

Re: point to point drilling - no cycle

If you have the licenses, "generic motion" operations are the equivalent of the turning "teach mode".  Otherwise you can set the cycle to "Standard text" or "no cycle"

If you are trying to do something at each point (e.g. some special cycle), if you use "Standard text", then add a UDE to the operation, then over-ride proc MOM_drill_text_move to output whatever you want.

Re: point to point drilling - no cycle

How do I find 'generic motion' if I have the license?

 

Under 'create operation' -> type?

What kind of output are you looking for?

This is on a Olympia HBM. It has a B-Axis Rotary around Y-axis. The controller is Siemens 840D.

Replace Cycle82 with normal G0 and G1 along the tool axis - Z-axis.

Current code:

 

N8665 Z1000.
N8670 Y46.7 Z1121.587
N8675 F500.
N8680 MCALL CYCLE82(1081.5872,1075.5872,6.,1073.8172,,1.)
N8685 X0.0 Y46.7
N8690 MCALL
N8695 G0 Z1000.

 

The post needs work to keep X at zero and rotate B only, otherwise I could use multi-axis -> generic motion. Just trying to find something quick to work now. Someone said I can change the cycle to linear and post will output regular G code?

Hello.

 

I made it work using NO CYCLE and adding GOTO Points before and after in Start and End Events.

 

Thanks

In the old point to point operations, you can set the Cycle type to No Cycle - the result is a point to point milling path.

But as said before - Generic Motion is the way to do this now. It is the "teach mode" of milling.
