    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...

    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...

    Latest generic for which machine configuration? For TRT tables, setup on right side of table like yours? (btw it is possible to set those up Y-direction)

    For UMC machines?

    Sounds like maybe you need to make sure the rotary is rotating the correct direction your program is telling it to? And, the post generating the correct direction for the model. For example, my post...

    That was running a program off the harddrive.

    I thought it was a bug at first, and posted the picture as a joke. But after coyoinu's response I went back and tried it. Sure enough the editor has...

    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...

    Yeah, what about an adapter/insert? Plain on one side and the dovetail on the other? 1/2"-13's for kurt jaws.

    I suppose you'd lose a bit of travel though. At least 3/4" or maybe 1" per station.

    Not across several bases, but a single base directly to parts, yes. I'd imagine if you locate them accurately enough it would work fine across more than one base. How many are you talking?

    DD, If you can swap pallets quickly in your verticals, that isn't much different than a horizontal, besides chip control, rigidity, and number of tools. Unless you can run unattended, but doesn't...

    Interesting concept, but seems like a poor decision to cut dovetails or second ops on such an expensive machine. Just my opinion but I'd keep those simple ops to cheaper machines.

    It's looking up the parameter for max travel if it is higher than 0, then if setting 9 is inch or metric.

    Just change the last line to G00 G90 G53 Z0 if you really want.

    This is what I'm trying to figure out. Why did they bother basing it on minutes and not seconds?

    It makes sense to use inverse if you're limited to minutes and only 4 decimals.
