    Default Programming manual for Heidenhain tnc151a needed

    I'm in need of a programming manual. Mill is an 86 bridgeport Interact Series I with an TNC151a control. I have Bobcad v31, and they can't write a post processor for me without it. Any and all help would be appreciated.

    I have a Series 1 Interact with TNC2500 circa 1995. You can probably use any of the programming manuals from the 151, 2500, 360 to get the info for a post. The VisualMill tech wrote one for the 2500, works pretty good, a couple of little anomalies that I have to set, or watch, manually that haven't been fixed (peck drill offset, all programs have to begin with %xxx, number of significant digits on tool radii, etc). The control is set in ISO mode to accept POST files. I posted a graphic here for the elusive ISO keypad overlay some time ago. Except for replacing caps in the old CRT, that Heidenhain control hasn't had a single issue (knock on iron).

    Here's a link to a folder with a bunch of Interact documents, including the 360 programming manual (bosch servo info, overlays, 151 service manual, etc). The 360 info is generally applicable to most of the Interact controls from what I understand (no expert here) except some of the features may not be available on an older 151 control.

    Thank you for the input! I figured Bobcad, seeing as they make the software, would have some sort of library, seeing as their product needs to interact with these controls. It's not like I'm the first.


    And I actually have the magnetic iso pad, if anyone needs a picture of it.

    Thanks! I retrieved those manuals from Heidenhain's site also, but it looks like they've organized and added things since I went mining in there.
