    Fair, I don't know why I typed rigidity when I meant something else related to acceleration. I've never set up a job for an R machine, but I've helped enough folks do their high accuracy tuning to...

    It is all a balancing act depending on what you need to do, because there is an ideal setup that we need to compromise as the situation dictates.

    That ideal is obviously a tool with a flute length...

    R series machines are nowhere near as rigid a S series machines and they can't accelerate as aggressively. In that Rough parameter setup page, I would increase the Smooth Override figure I mentioned...

    Try it now!

    In the meantime, change that 8003 param to 30,000.

    In the Roughing parameters, you'll see a "Smoothing Override" figure. In Mode A, think of that number in terms of a race car...

    What is the linking output like? G1 only, or G2/G3?

    If you want to send me some code, I can run it and find out WTF.

    L2 (Rough) is still using Mode A as the underlying algorithm which is the superior one for roughing. Without looking at it, I'm running with the assumption that your jerkyness is coming from the 8003...

    To be fair, if he wants to do what I think he is doing, something like MasterCAM/HSMWorks/Fusion/etc could basically do this out of the box using their adaptive roughing strategies. Turn down the...

    The Orange is probably a good option for you.

    The deal is that it is not self-centering and it works like a normal vise in many respects. The fixed jaw sits in serrated groves and gets adjusted to...

    So all the size, weight, complexity, and expense of an HMC, but without the benefits of an intrinsic 4th axis, nor the rigidity of spindle in-line with the structure.
