I am using an axial, 3/8" em, and want to mill a Ø.672" pocket @ X0.0, in my soft jaws about 0.02" deep.
(as a test)
Any help will be appreciated!
Non working program follows:
G00 X20. Z20.
T0909 (3/8 4FL AXIAL M TOOL)
M110
M146 M15
G94
SB=3000 M13
G00 Z.1 X.297 (math= Ø.672-.375 = .297 [correct?] )
C0.0
G101 Z-.02 F5.
G102 C0. L0.297 (??)
G01 Z.1 F50.
G00 Z1.
M09
M12
M109
G00 X20. Z20.
M30
What am I doing wrong? It must be the L in the G102....I think....


Simple ask, but since it is OKUMA there is NO information on programming (that is actually worth a shit!) ANYWHERE on the web, and no help line for immediate application problems.

Thanks all,

Doug.

NM, I figured it out.
...
g00 z.1 x.3
g101 z-0.02 f5.
G103 C180. L.15
G103 C0. L.15
.....

Thanks anyways!
Hmmm, what made it change to G103? Technically it should've been L.1485 correct? I hate Okuma and their nuances about everything, specially program restart.
