    Care to post the actual reasons it's so bad? "they did not like it" doesn't help much
  2. Unfortunately for you, it is a poorly written...

    Unfortunately for you, it is a poorly written example. Program 9995 calls 9833 at the end to turn off the probe. The following G65 calls a protected move, 9810, which requires the probe to be on to...

    Weird concept.

    Seems like everything this could do, the EC400 would do better. Unless you don't do well with gravity?


    But why not? They already have all the parts. Just slap a VF2 headstock...

    Sticky button on tool setter? If od measuring button is stuck it would do that.

    Interesting app.

    FYI doing that you'll have to change your post a little bit (or edit after the fact) and you're kind of limited on what you can do, since this would be basically using a B-value...

    Yep, certainly possible but not 'out of the box'. You'll need some macros to do this automatically.

    Need to do this on a lot of parts? Or just a onesie-twosie? Easy enough to do by hand if not too...

    The sliding jaw is also not exactly 'fixed' in the X direction, or free from twisting some extent. Perhaps an indicator on the side could shed some more light?

    Small parts like that where geometry...

    Yep, you should definitely set up the machine that way. Just use a tape measure to measure center points and fudge tool lengths until the part comes out right.

    Wrap is the wrong feature. It gives "sloped" walls since it is projecting towards the center.

    Use a swept cut if you want perpendicular walls.

    After verification, are you comparing to the model or stl file? Or you're programming from 2d wire?

    One thing to add - don't assume the Y-centerpoint for both A and B axes is the same. Ideally they should be, but actually might differ slightly. There is a setting on the control to account for this...

    In my case, no. Still have the problem occasionally when it is cold in the shop.

    Some of the other machines have a more detailed layout drawing and show the double arm drops down 4.5"

    In your example, are those XY positions after the G234 call a duplicate of the current position in G254? If that were the case, it should not be a dog-leg. You're already at Z6 in the current...

    No, no, no, this is dangerous and will produce dog-leg rapid moves! The code as the OP originally posted is correct and safe, to move to initial XY position in G254, then approach in G234 XYZ as one...

    Seems to me the best improvement is the wider truck spacing on the saddle. Why they ever made the first one so damn narrow? Seems like such a huge design oversight. Doesn't take a rocket surgeon to...

    For UMC machines?

    Yeah probably not, but do you think that's their primary design consideration here? How rigid is a right angle head on a VF machine? Certainly wouldn't even compare to this one.

    Lot of other work...
