Post Builder - Add a missing System reserved cycle to Fanuc 6m controller template post.

Hi Post builder guru...

 

 

Are there any guidence documents on how to add a "system reserved cycle" to the Fanuc_6m template.

 

E.g.

 

Cycle Tap, Float

Cycle Tap, Breakchip

 

If I try to add these as User Defined Cycles postbuilder complains "The cycle name belongs to System Cycle type!"

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

cycles and MOM are missing in tcl and UI.

but you can add it and stuff by uplevel command.

(like uplevel MOM_helix_move in imported "pb cmd init helix" to helix motion output to work)

 Read outputed warnings and you will see what handlers are missing.

Yes I can add it with uplevel...

 

But I'd like to add it to the GUI so it is easily visible.

You can edit manually tcl and def ,it is possible, but I dont recommend it....

But there is no other simple way.

 

There is no need to add it in UI because you set cycles once and it is finished.

Anyway cycles can be handle by the same template blocks or custom commands and you can call them in uplevel as well.

So when I make a change in general behaviour, it is general.

For me this is quite good solution, it is not so bad.
