    That's kind of what I was getting at/thinking. I have a couple friends with trucking companies so one trip at 102" wide with a step deck is reasonable. Start adding in oversize permits and or...

    If the geometry selection was outputting 1 arc then the sketch selection will do the same as there is no way the code can get any more simple. Where selecting sketches should help is when the...

    Try selecting geometry and posting code, then select a sketch and post the code and compare.

    I just tried opening fusion to give it a try and it won't run unless I update it by downloading the...

    It's been a while since I've touched a 3 or used G92. Maybe you have to hit reset to update the display

    When buying a used machine many people will check backlash with an indicator, but few check the control backlash values against the factory parameters

    I would just punch it into MDI but it doesn't really matter.

    G92 will change the machines current displayed location to whatever you enter in that block.

    If you send the machine home and enter...

    That's pretty much what I was trying to get at. I believe most solids and surfaces are NURBS where sketch's are actual straight lines and arcs

    It's been a while but I seem to remember being able to select the edge of the solid with contour which is not what you want. You want to hide the solid and make the sketch itself visible and select...

    Try selecting a sketch of the circle rather than the solid. Back when I was playing with it that made a huge difference on the toolpath. IE it would output 1 arc rather than linear moves or a ton of...

    If it were me I would be happy with 3 tenths on that machine and bore anything that needs to be held tighter.

    Often it is more valuable to know what your machine can and can't do than to have a...

    As far as I am concerned anyone is welcome provided they conduct themselves in a professional manner and attempt to stay focused.

    The difference is threads like this will die a crib death :eek:

    The fact that this thread is still open is crazy and speaks volumes as to what has happened to this place. There is still a wealth of knowledge here and likely always will be but the static has...

    I hope the equipment part is not true lol. A 50 millionth best test in the spindle will give you a damn good idea of roundness, well on a VMC anyway.

    A lot is going to depend on the control as well as the machine but often G05.1 Q1 is simple HPCC smooth interpolation mode (which turns short lines into arcs) and G5.1 P1 is multibuffer which is...

    Not looking to start a pissing match but why limit yourself to a used Haas?

    In that price range you can pick up a nice used Japanese VMC that will run circles around any of those machines.
