Re: Resetting G28 position with a command?

If there was a command to reset the G28 position that was part of the g code then I can't forget to reset the position.

Yes the previous part was shorter. My brain is getting older and as my wife would tell you somewhat forgetful :)

Re: Resetting G28 position with a command?

I am using Fusion 360 on a cnc lathe. The problem was I forgot to reset my g28 position and I had it set behind the part at a -z position. When my part was done it attempted to go to the g28 position via the shortest path possible(through my part) if I could reset the g28 position via the g code the...

Re: fusion 360 pp and conversational programming

I misspoke. It is not the HSM library. It is the Fusion post processor library. I was thinking inventor which uses HSM library.
Here is a link

Re: fusion 360 pp and conversational programming

When you open the post processor in Fusion down in the lower corner you will see a hyperlink to the HSM library. From there you can search for all turning processors under centroid. There is only one Centroid turning PP.

Re: fusion 360 pp and conversational programming

Just use the Centroid turning PP in Fusion 360. You will need to download it from the HSM database and put it on your machine.
You would really need to know what you are doing to do that part with the conversational program.

Re: G number to reset G28 location?

Hmm that is strange that you can't change this position on the go with a G command. Since the Post Processor references G28 U0W0 throughout the g code then I would have to change every line that references the G28 which is not an option. I would be really nice to be able to simply update the G28 pos...

Re: G number to reset G28 location?

I guess I should just ask if there is a G command that will allow me to update the G28 position in Acorn?

Resetting G28 position with a command?

Is there a way to add a line to my G-code so that it updates the G28 location prior to cutting a part? I don't want to have to remember to go into the centroid program to reset my G28 location when I switch to a new part. I want it to automatically update this location from the G-code when I load it...

Re: simulate spindle fault on 2hp 3ph motor

Yea I think trying to stop 1100 ft/lbs per second with your hands would result in you having no hands. Smart move not to try it.
