    Makes sense. Just for your information, not long ago I programmed super old Fanuc 4t and 5t machines...the format took a bit to get used to. Fortunately I was able to get my company to shell out...

    It's definitely stupid in this case because the OP specifically states that a secret security clearance is preferred, but not necessary.

    That being said, I can see where it would be beneficial to...

    I've found that over years of using Mastercam that if something is ever a pain in the ass the most likely culprit is that I'm doing something the hard way when there's actually a way of doing it...

    If you go back to page 72 check out the last couple lines in the blue box. I'm looking at the var zFormat line. It looks like the function you need to force it into integer output is scale, then if...

    I don't think you'd find it in the post. If you don't designate your own separator it's going to go to a decimal point, which makes sense. I'd try to call out a separator in one of your format lines,...

    Of course.

    I'm spitballing here, but it says that the default separator for a decimal point is '.'

    Have you tried to add in an empty separator character for your formats to see if that will...

    SGS drilling tool wizard

    Normally I'm pretty good with this stuff, but this thing has me feeling like a full blown simpleton.

    Does anyone use these 3FL drills from SGS for aluminum? The ones I got in for this job have...

    Agree fully with this.

    Also, in my opinion you're a little light on SFM. I run HSS in aluminum starting at 250...all drill sizes.

    I cannot overstate how important I feel it is to have this feature unlocked on a Haas - obviously depending on what you're doing. We have all Haas mills in our shop, some with HSM and some without....

    There's a few of them that I've used that are probably cheaper per edge than what you're using now. Ingersoll Gold Trio comes to mind, Iscar H690, Seco Square Six.

    I only do it that way because I haven't learned the custom drill cycles in Mastercam and I was ashamed to admit it.

    In the time it took to drill that extra 3" of air on that first hole you could've hand coded the rest of the holes and had them ready to go by time that hole was done.

    SECO Square Six.

    The only thing you can't do with it is ramp, but beyond that it is a really versatile cutter.
