cam post processor

Question asked by Robert Eppig on Dec 27, 2017

We are a small company with a Hurco VM1 machine.  When we peck drill the machine expects Z's - first Z is total depth, second Z is first peck depth and third Z is peck depth.  However, the post processors I have tried output Q's as the peck depth.  I have to just manually edit the file but it would be nice to have the post processor do the work.  Does anyone know how I can fix this?

 

Also, is there a way to edit something to the output of the .set file?  I set the .src file in the UPG editor (setup tab) to output Program Name and number,  Part Name and number, op number, date and revision.  I can fill in the info in the post tab in Machine config in camworks but it does not output anywhere?  Does anyone know how to fix this?
