the legacy P2P drilling did not inherit the clearance plane setting from MCS

Hello 

 

I tried to postprocess the legacy P2P drilling, but it did not inherit the clearance plane setting from MCS.

 

So I was wondering which mom variable link to the MCS clearance plane value in the postbuilder.

PostBuilder 12

 

Thanks

HiIt will inherit it correctly if clearance plane in MCS is defined manually, not as "Automatic".and it has nothing to do with postprocessor but how those drilling operation worked....as far as I remember

Hello Marek

 

Which option is for "Manual"?

I tried "Plane", didn't work.

yes. that is what I meant.

but Im not sure if you are aware about it: clearance plane in ptp drilling is applied only before first and after last hole. between each hole "Retract-To" parameter is used which is defined locally in the operation.

As Marek pointed out the Clearance Plane only works on the 1st and last hole.  However unless your post is customized the Retract-To distance will not work.  If this is a Fanuc control you may be able to use the Auto Retcto  This should give you a G98 / G99.  But that depends on the post.  One of the downfalls of the Legacy Point-to-Point operations. 

 

Have you tried Hole making?

I used a UDE to manually set the clearance plane in the MCS. All operations in the MCS group will inherit the clearance plane setting.
