I am trying to mill with this program below,but it`s not working. I allways get alarm mesgs (Alarm Nr310 Invalid G Codes: G code not defined and is not a macro call) can anyone help?
G00 G90 X50 Y-50 (Center )
M97 P200 L8
G00 Z30 M30
G01 Y0 F100.
G68 X50 Y-50 R45
G90 M97 P100
Coordinate rotation and scaling is an option on HAAS, and must be enabled in the parameters page.
See if it is enabled. If not, try DEMO to get 200 hours worth of it.
Decimals are not necessary, and teir value depends on the settings page.
50 may mean 50. or .005
oh really, cool. did not know that one.
Never used a machine that didnt use decimal points. It seems to me that it is just one more way you can screw yourself up. Do you guys like it, or just deal with it?
If you read some of the Okuma posts from Wade, you'll see that his control won't even accept decimals anywhere. I think some older controls were that way, and for compatibility reasons new ones have the ability to use old programs with no decimals.
Personally, prefer decimals hands down.
Fanuc 7M controls don't use decimals either. You have to be very careful when inputting numbers. One missed digit will likely cause a crash. I was so glad when ours finally died.
Salsa, also had problem w/g68 in side of sub program...had to put a separate g68 for each sub call. also using Haas.
Thanks Guys, the option G68 Rotation is not enabled. someone told me that I need a code to do that. Does anybody know how it works?
That is an option you can buy. Unlike Fanuc though, you pay them and they give you the code over the phone so no service call is necessary.
However, it is possible to put it in DEMO mode for 200 hours.
Parameter 57 - ENA ROT & SC. I think the code is demo.
First change Bit7 in settings to OFF < PARAMETER LOCK>
Man, i working with a Haas TM1, and al is about the settings... 51 door open, 15 t and h.....
