ZW3D 2014 Beta CAM 2.5D Operations
Message 1 of 7
I want make an 2.5D Profile Operation.
On this, the move from Z0 to Z-20 (example), will use always feed an not rapid.
If i change "Plunge" from 20% to "rapid" in speed/feed table, the Z- movement will use RAPID, but the first arc to the part will also use RAPID !
Why the Z moves and the X/Y move not separated on the speed/feed table ?
This is the same problem in ZW3D 2012, or is there a other way ?
Second question :
I try the manual lead mode.
If i use this, there are no G41 or G42 in the program code, so the radius offset will not work.
I get the message:
NOTE: Cutcom radius offset option apply to tangent to boundary option only.
What are the correct settings to use a manual lead in/out and radius offset?

Not good to hear :-(
First problem is since 2012 (or earlier?)
The second in 2013, 2013SP and now in 2014 Beta.
Please take a little Time from your 3D work to the 2,5D area !
Please allow more lead in option with radius compensation !
New machines look forward to the NC code an can calculate lead-in and lead-out without ARC.
But ZW3D only allow (i think) 3 options with radius-compensation.

I hope i set the correct parameter (i have the German version) but it do nothing ! It will move to the top of the part in RAPID, standard value is 2.5, only this 2.5mm are now "faster".
I always use the top of the part to make an profile. If i use the bottom of the part for the profile, then the cutter move to the bottom with rapid. But then i can not use 2 or more cuts in Z !
The only way i found is the "bottom thickness". If i want to cuts and the rapid move in Z, i must selekt the profile at the bottom of the part and must set this bottom thickness.
I think its not a problem for ZW3D to separate the Z feed from the first arc feed !
Now some pics :
Here i set to 0.0 if this is the parameter you wrote about. Feed is set to 100%.
Here i use RAPID, but then the cutter use RAPID to move in X/Y to the part !
Hm have one idea, later i will try to set RAPID and the "clearance" in X/Y bigger. But i think this will do nothing.
Here i use the profile at the bottom of the part and the "Bottom Thickness" value.
Works, but i think a separated feed for Z move is much easier.
The feed values name is "Eintauchen", in english: "plunge" or "dive in" ???
Now that have nothing to do with the first move in X/Y !
This short correction is not a hard work for ZW3D, and then let the user enable "cutter compensation" to all lead-in options and i am happy ! Or let it define in the ZW3D Setup. So if i have a machine that can use G41/G42 with a 90 degree line (like an old MAHO) let the user use this ! I think its not a problem for the user to test this.
