I finally got my compressor back together and finished the ASME Circle Diamond Square test piece tonight. I have not had a chance to inspect it yet, but it certainly looks great. I am still getting used to the not-exactly-intuitive file management menus involved in copying a program from a USB stick to machine memory. Even Haas pre-NGC is much better in that part of the user interface department.
I added a Y Snap-Loc fitting to the coolant line so I could add a second nozzle. That made a big difference in getting coolant where it was needed. I'd be curious to hear DN's rationale for providing a too-basic single coolant nozzle.
I am also curious to know what logic triggers the chip auger. It might be a G01, but I thought I had at least one G01 last night that did not start the conveyor. I'd prefer the chip auger not run during my warmup program, so I guess I have to toss an M25 after every G01 to stop the conveyor. On that topic, where can I find a list of all M-codes? I searched the DN and Fanuc manuals, and could not find one (not that I'd expect Fanuc to have such a list, since it varies with the MTB).
On edit, the ASME test sample checks out to within about ±0.0001 for roundness and location of the round features to the best of my ability to measure using my Aciera F4 with Acu-rite 5 µm DRO and tenths indicator. I am not proud of the engraving - my chamfer mill makes a lousy engraver. I could not find an unbroken split point engraver in my collection.
