x and y in a plunge move Biesse Rover?

Postby bigZ » Wed Mar 01, 2017 7:56 am

I want to achieve the following example for a drill routine on a Biesse Rover:-

N10 X100 Y100 T5 L=G99 PRF=10

Obviously below does not work as x and y will not show in G Code and if i try putting it in the Rapid section z will= safe height.
+---------------------------------------------------
+ Commands output for Plunge Moves
+---------------------------------------------------

begin PLUNGE_MOVE

"[N] [X] [Y] T[T] L=G99 PRF=[Z]"

I can already do this using rapid move, but it does not work for my machine . It has to be all 1 line.

N10 X100 Y100
N20 T5 L=G99 PRF=10

Appreciate your help in advance

How are you identifying when the correct tool is in place or doesn't that matter? If it doesn't matter why not put the code all on one line where you know it already works?

Do you mean cut and paste.

I want to do several hundred holes with different drills

N10 X100 Y100 T5 L=G99 PRF=10
N10 X200 Y300 T12 L=G99 PRF=16
etc

L=G99 calls the offset for each drill T1 to t13. Thirteen drills in all with all the origins known.

I'll leave this to someone who understands production drilling better than I do.

Have you tried a line similar to this? In the plunge section? Maybe add a first plunge move section

"[N] X[X] Y[Y] T[T] L=G99 PRF=[Z]"

Found the problem Just needed to change the X_POSITION and Y_POSITION from change to always.

VAR X_POSITION = [X|C|X|1.3]

VAR X_POSITION = [X|A|X|1.3]

Thanks for your help will post processor might be of use to others.

Biesse Rover 321 Drill Post Processor

Attached is the processor to use the vertical drills for Cam and Dowel etc.

This one requires the origin to be set at the top of material. The other processors for routing can be found here plus how to transfer data to the cnc:-
