Re: Fusion 360 Mill Post Processor for Acorn with additional Features (New Version 4)

What WCS do you have set in Fusion? If you have WCS 10 selected then V3 will incorrectly post that as G54, while V5 is correctly posting it as E10.

Re: Altaros Turret

My concern is how do you adjust the proper tool height of each tool or ensure drill bits are vertically centered? Most good quality turning toolholders have the top shank surface at the cutting height of the insert. If not, those would have to be machined/shimmed to the correct height. The tool blo...

Re: Altaros Turret

That looks pretty nice. It appears that as long as you have a free input and a free output, the Acorn should ne able to control it with no problem. The supplied M6 macro looks like it should be easy to convert. It is a delay based sequential changer.

Re: Losing Z and X

If the DRO shows it moving, then Centroid thinks the axis drive is working OK and not signalling a fault. Do you have drive faults connected to the Acorn? Is the drive itself showing a fault? The Acorn is outputting a step and direction pulse train if the DRO is moving; for some reason your drive is...
