FeatureCAM post for Brother C00 control?
Anybody? Since support is absolutely a worthless pisspoor joke now.......
I am going to start out editing code from my HAAS post for now I guess.
But, I am not a big fan of hand editing code. Esp. the very looong programs I am going to be posting.
And, I am not good enough in Xbuild to make my own post.

Wheelie,
This for your new Brother pallet machine? You're just doing prismatic (2.5D) work, right? Reason I ask, we have post for our R650 which I'm glad to send over, but we have 4th on both pallets and create setups at each location. I'm little concerned about how it will work if used with multiple fixture offsets, etc. I just don't want to send anything that causes more problems than it solves. PM me. I'm in and out of here over next few days, so bear with me
Fred

Your haas post should work fine. Literally the only thing you will need to change is the tapping cycle.
G77 instead of G84
G77G98Z.250R.050S1000J20. (1/420 thread)
G77G98Z.250R.050S1000I.7 (m4x.7 thread)
Get it up and running and you can implement the G100 Tool change call later to save a few seconds but honestly I hardly ever use it. The machines move fast enough as it is.

And you need to change the tool change cycle!
The use of G100 is a great feature,

I will look in to G100. But, M6 will work just fine for now. (I think)
Edit: Looks like G100 is how you git er' to do TC and vector in to position at the same time?

I have stumbled on all kinds of little issues trying to get this Brother to run on my HAAS post.
What a pain in the arse, LOL.
I would make a list, but, my head is jello right now.
I got it to do a simple operation. But, it took a bunch of editing.
I would have to go compare the code I posted to what actually ran to make the list.
Maybe later, got to run wifey to airport right now..............

Well, countless hours later (in XBUILD) and I finally have a post that will run with zero hand editing.
Thanks for nothing AutoDICKS. You guys suck ass.
My ballonknot will still be tight as hell proving programs I am sure, because, well I wrote the damn post. And, I really have no business doing that.
But, I am at least moving forward.

I can not get G100 to work. I am sure it is because I don't know WTF I am doing in XBUILD.
Dumb things to note:
Coolanton absolutely has to be on its own line.
Can not have a G28 Z0 in the safety line.
It pitched a fit until I figured out how to eliminate the HAAS tool precall.
In one of my edits I somehow lost the G28 Z0 on the line before the M1, and it took me forever to figure out how to get it back.
I never did actually. I started over. And managed not to loose it the second time.
And a couple other things I don't remember.
But, that program runs.

You know you definitely need to tell us what tool Little Daddy is now, yes?

03112018, 10:57 AM #14
If someone would explain G100 I would like to know how it works. I have an A00 control and the manuals are in broken english and I can't quite grasp it.

03112018, 11:17 AM #15
Check with BrotherFrank to see if that version supports it.
Typical code:
G100 T6 G54 X1.5 Y.5 S7500 M3
Positions and changes tool during the positioning, and of course turns on the spindle.
If you have a pallet/quick turn table machine, it does all this while the table is rotating.
Quite convenient. Minimal wasted time.
I have a bunch of partsI make often with about a 3 minute cycle time. Loading time can take 30 seconds to a minute, depending..... but since the loading is while the machine is cutting on the other side of the table, loading time net is the 3 seconds it takes to rotate. Combine that with the spindle accel/decel of the Brother spinde, and the positioning speed, parts get done efficiently.
Even if I set up and load 4 parts, I still get only the 3 second net load time.

What Mike said! I would add a little to the code:
G100 T1 G0 G90 G54 X_ Y_ A_ (and or B if available) S_ M3;
G43 H1 Z.1 M8;
;
;
Some guys put the Z move on the G100 line. I usually don't. You could if you're trying to eek out every last bit of time. Another time saver is don't G91 G28 Z0 at the end of a tool. Just go straight to the G100. I usually leave home moves in until I prove the program out and then take them out. Yes the A00 machines can run G100, so can any Gcode Brother back to the early 90s.

BROTHERFRANK, I am really struggling to understand why my machine locks up if the M8 is on any line other than all by itself on its own line.
I can put a blockskip before it. But, it has to be on its own line.
What you typed up there ^^^^^^ "G43 H1 Z.1 M8;" absolutely will not fly in my machine. I have tried countless times.
If I delete it out of that line, it runs fine.
Only thing the manual says for Alarm SM4006 is: Invalid data, the specified format is not correct
