Threading on a Boxford TCL lathe
then go through steps 4 to 9 here.
then steps 1 and 2
then run steps 10 to the end
from the second section of here....
To use with your own inifile, it must first be edited. From a normal user terminal, change directory to the one that contains your inifile Using the command : ncam -i(inifilename) -c('mill' | 'plasma' | 'lathe') will automatically create a backup and modify your file. It will also prepare the sub-directory with needed files and links. If you use axis and -t option it will be embedded in a tab
ncam -i(inifilename) -c lathe
if you are running Gmoccapy then you have other options for its location as it can be on a tab or as part of the main screen, you just edit your ini file
I need to get more familiar with the basic functions first and hopefully manage to get a working lathe .
Going back to the start of this thread I was struggling to get a threading canned cycle going. I managed but was not sure how I had done it, which makes it difficult as it now seems to have ceased to work again and of course I dont understand why.
So back to square one .
With the bit of code I put up earlier and the file I zipped and attached why doesn't it go?
