  4. How to reset base offsets back to zero on siemens 840d?

    In the process of setting up my DMG DMC103 I think I may have accidentally set my base offsets to the wrong place. I am getting software limit errors when I try to run a program now. Does anyone know...

    Same error when trying to run in MDI. Heres the program. This post is supposed to be for a DMG DMC63V with 840D. Also error is in every axis ie: if I remove Z moves, error is in next axis, either Y...
  7. 10720 error Siemens 840D, code wont run, how to check zero offsets?

    Im trying to test a post processor for my DMG DMU103V with 840D control. I can run a few lines then any axis movement causes a 10720 error. This a software limit error somehow related to the zero...
  8. Ok I figured it out. The magazine list tool...

    Ok I figured it out. The magazine list tool offset is not the actual tool length on this machine, its another type of WCS, I finally saw that "WCS" was written above the column! If you change a tools...

    The laser shutter was a blown air line under the table, no big deal. For some reason, the tool length data that the laser added to the tools in the table blocks any changes to the Z offset. I reset...
  10. DMG DMC103V 840D Z axis work offset is locked how to unlock?

    Im trying to set the work offset on this machine. The DMC implementation of the WCS on this control is really different than whats in the Siemens manual and also very different from my DMG DMC manual...

    Well now the shutters for the laser stopped moving out of the way of the laser. I think its an air leak or sticky valve, the cylinders seem to be free. I just moved the shutters out of the way for...

    Looked at the laser a bit more, its setting the tool offset to the distance from the face of the spindle to the tool tip. I think it also sets the WCS in Z to zero at the spindle face because it...
