hi

i'm a new Fusion360 user

i've a destop mill with 4th axis located on the table in the X direction (A)

i've try to face an object using rotary axis...

the toolpath simulation is ok but when i postprocess the gcode return a code like i have the rotary axis in the milling head...

my postprocessor line to set the 4th axes:

var aAxis = createAxis({coordinate:0,table:true, axis:[1, 0, 0], range:[-360, 360], preference:0});



and the gcode generated:

seem like the option table:true don't work on my configuration

in attachment the model with the toolpath generated and the toolpath on linuxcnc

It's that last line you need to change as well. The last line in that initialization routine where createAxis is. Optimizenachineangles() or something similar. You set it to 1 if it is 0, or the opposite. I am not at the computer right now, but i hope you can find it from this vague description.

the line is:
optimizeMachineAngles2(0); // TCP mode

i've try option 1 and 0 and the result is the same

if the postprocessor work well and if i want to face the side angle of the workpiece with a 4th axis, i must have a gcode with the A rotation to the right angle and the milling toolpath in the normal XYZ coordinate???

The preview of the toolpath with an A axis will not be very good. But that G-code you have there isn't right.

Here is my initialization
if (true) { // note: setup your machine here
    var aAxis = createAxis({coordinate:0, table:true, axis:[-1, 0, 0], cyclic:true, preference:0});
    machineConfiguration = new MachineConfiguration(aAxis);

    setMachineConfiguration(machineConfiguration);
    optimizeMachineAngles2(1); // TCP mode
  }

Then when you get this working you will see some jerky movements. Here is what I did to that

There is a link to my modified post processor in the video description.

i've dowloaded an upgraded postprocessor from hsmposts and the 4th axis work fine
probabily the postprocessor in the installation files is corrupted or not complitely working
here the gcode from new postprocessor

now the milling path is on the upper side of the workpiece

thanks for all
