    Hello Gregor,
    This is because G32 can be used for Continuous Threading, where the Lead and Shape of the Thread may change at various points. The system is controlled in such a manner that the...

    Hello Higgins909,
    The Z address specified in the G76 cycle is the end of the Z travel in the Threading Cycle irrespective of the magnitude of any Exit Chamfer that may be specified in the Cycle. If...

    Hello Nerdlinger,
    Yes. I thought perhaps the OP may be seeing a change in the C axis velocity and taking it as the incorrect Feed Rate. Its common when the X axis is going to be close to the centre,...

    Hello munruh,
    The Feed Rate in Polar Interpolation will vary (C or X depending on the mode of feed rate) depending on how close the cutter is to the centre of the part. For the same length of Linear...

    Hello Paul,
    I've not struck this issue before with this control; I'm not sure if this is a parameter issue or not. Out of curiosity, why are you wanting to plug the 5th axis value of G54 into the...

    Hello Tony,
    Error in Binary Calculations occur because of the fixed number of binary digits to represent a decimal number. Accordingly, some decimal numbers can’t be represented exactly in binary,...

    Hello Nerdlinger,

    Calculations are carried out in binary and may result in unexpected results when comparing the values of two variables. Accordingly, subtract one variable from the other and...

    Hello Tichy,
    The program, in terms of machining, becomes rather inefficient when the G1 stage is reached, with a lot of repeat territory covered. Dealing with each corner of the rectangle...

    Hello jancollc
    The X-1.308 would have be a Typo; wouldn't it? The program would be attempting to circular Interpolate with the following Block from a Start Point of X-1.308 Y1.7864 and that's never...

    My comment was related to the use of G92, which is the alternate, equivalent to G50. Accordingly, its irrelevant whether the control uses G92, or G50 to set the Coordinate System. Most of us have...

    Hello Sb1,
    Error 603 is certainly for a non-monotonic move in the Z-axis in a Multi-repetitive Cycle. However, the profile itself doesn't have non-monotonic Z moves per se. I believe the error is...
