    Mastercam Mill and Lathe are not well suited for Swiss. They do have a Millturn product but I hear it isn't particularly functional. Better off with Partmaker or something like that, unless you just want to post snippets of mill code and lathe code and piece them together by hand.

    Tsugami has there own basic program called Abile you should be able to find it online.

    Programmed at a shop that had 2 Tsugamis. Abile works well, but you are fairly limited in what you can do with it. I used Mastercam to make the programs for the main and the sub. If you can make a live tool lathe run with Mastercam, then you can program a Swiss, with a little post editing.

    And I was just making programs where the main runs, and the sub runs. With a hand off. So sync codes are easy. Stuff where we needed the sub main to work together, had to do by hand.


    If you are going to use Mastercam regularly for the swiss, you need a machine definition for a swiss, tie it to a post. You are going to need to at least flip the Z axis sign.

    If you just need a program here and there, you could draw your part backwards in Matercam. And if your shop has Tsugami, you might have Abile somewhere. Ask some people or look around when you have time. It is a good program, and works well. It isn't hard to use at all.

    thanks for valuable reply ...please chheck i just change post to invert z axis minus to plus..can it work for tsugami...please check thread(c n c z o n e) where i get help to edit post..after that i get all my z minus to plus ans via versa

    some one suggest me change this to

    pfzout #Force Z axis output
    if absinc$ = zero, *zabs, !zinc
    else, *zinc, !zabs

    pzout #Z output
    if absinc$ = zero, zabs, !zinc
    else, zinc, !zabs



    to this

    pfzout #Force Z axis output
    zinc=zinc*m_one, zabs=zabs*m_one # changes Z sign-added ST 27/4/2010
    if absinc$ = zero, *zabs, !zinc
    else, *zinc, !zabs

    pzout #Z output
    zinc=zinc*m_one, zabs=zabs*m_one # changes Z sign-added ST 27/4/2010
    if absinc$ = zero, zabs, !zinc
    else, zinc, !zabs

    As long as it works. For mcam in the post, the header area should have a multiplier for each axis. Just change there from 1 to -1. But if you already have the change made and it works, then cheers.
