About EdgeCAM Subroutines

.

Do you know how to make EdgeCAM post with subroutines?

.

One guy setup the post for subroutines using the Translate function and CPL naming convention. The post is built for a Horizontal with the potential of 4 machining positions on each face of a tombstone. Each part position has a unique prefix for the CPL. Position one always starts with P1, P2, P3 .. P9, with an INDEX output.

G0 G54.1 P1 B0.0

M98 P1025

G0 G54.1 P13 B0.0

M98 P1025

G0 G54.1 P15 B0.0

M98 P1025

G0 G54.1 P17 B0.0

M98 P1025

......

Another guy said his way not easy, but it works. Get your part oriented with the (TOP) cpl like you want and then click geometry point and place a point right on top of your CPL. Now copy that point using translate and move it over (in my case I used x3). Then create a a cpl called g54 and origin it at the 1st point (or the "top" cpl) After that create another CPL and origin it at the other point you made. If you need to do more than 2 parts then do the same process but name the cpls g56 g57 and so on. Now that you have the cpls set, go ahead and find your features and everything you normally do to get ready to switch to manufacture mode. When you click on MANfac mode, choose your new post...

My god! Too much and too complex, you can see his video if you have enough patience:

Computer can do everything easily, why not customize good POST?

.

The best way is just at the beginning of your program sequence, insert “Multiple Parts” and put information about Number of Parts(example: 3 for G54,G55,G56) and First Subprogram Number (example: 5001), that’s it. After POST out you will get main program and subprogram, please see picture:

.

Why this way so easy? Because JeffCNC use so many special skills and customized good EdgeCAM post with subroutines. POST can do everything, just use this POST, you don’t need do anything else.

.

Remember good POST good program, save time save money!

Here is sample NC program.
