Someone please help I'm going crazy! I work with a doosan lynx 300m lathe with a fanuc control. I love the machine and can program 95% or my work at the control. But now, I'm making a part the has hash Mark's and engraving every 15⁰ around the OD. I used mastercam to program it and had no problem on that end. The problem I have is when I post it and load the program. It starts out just fine. The tool will come in, the spindle will orientate, then it will engrave the first number. After that the tool will retract and then the next line is a C axis position move. The problem I'm having with that is it's a rapid C move. The machine doesn't alarm out but just sits there. If I change it from a rapid C move to a G01 and add a feed rate it does just fine. No big deal if I have a couple lines to edit but its 5000 lines of code. I cant (or dont want to) manually go through and change every rapid C axis move to a feed. Is there a setting on the machine that will accept that code and rapid move C axis? (Again, it's a good code, doesn't alarm out. It just doesn't do it) or is there a mastercam18 setting that I can change all Rapids to a set feedrate? It only stalls on a rapid move. When its engraving it rotates C just fine. PLEASE HELP!
