Ok, now the program runs fine, but the tool barely cuts anything. I double checked the tool offset and the thread dimensions and made an adjustment to the taper, but all it cuts at most is maybe a .005" scratch of a thread. I have to adjust the threader offset +.06" in X to get it to where its supposed to be. its doable since i have just over .08" of clearance to work with, but now its got me scratching my head again. I was aiming to taper the thread all the way to the drill diameter, but do I need to extend the z depth to do that? Or just bump up the thread endpoint by .06 in x?
Sorry if these questions seem stupid, but I've only ever worked with G92 threading cycles and we've always tapped NPT threads in the past, but we're trying to cut down on process steps and try and get as much done in one go as possible, but this is a bit of a learning curve for me
I would get rid of that "Z.05" that's on a line by itself, for starts.
The X target is, .5025 according to my math - but I could be wrong.
The P word should be written out to four places - P0410 so should the Q - 0120
Get rid of the other Z.05 also.
