CAMduct™ Users / Re: LIMAC double blade post processor
« Last post by Dave M on Yesterday at 05:48:37 AM »
Thanks Darren,
thats what ADSK suggested.

Being a complete virgin at creating custom posts I started to investigate & got completely lost.

Do you know if there is any way of starting with an existing post & then modifying to generate the C code I require?

It looks like a complete minefield & I'm concerned that if I get something slightly wrong I'll break the LIMAC machine!!!

I'm trying to create a 'C' code to rotate the 45 angled blade so it will cut the 45 deg groove for folding so 1st pass is '0' deg & second pass is '180' deg.
I've been told by ADSK that the blade rotation is controlled at the controller but all the sample NC files have the 'C' code within them so obviously the machine controller needs to read this to drive the head rotation.

I would expect someone out there has come across this before and requested a post to perform the operation?

Ditto.

Too bad 'Beer' wasn't in his list of interests....although one can assume it goes hand in hand w/fishing.

Been meaning to touch base w/him myself but figured I'd let him settle in a bit.

I know quite a bit of you, but with my role change I figured it was time for a re-introduction. One that I am very proud to make now that I am back into this community supporting the fabrication products.

Boy I'd like to bend your ear over a few beers. ;D ;D

Designline / Copper/PVC Street Fittings
« Last post by frozen3 on May 18, 2018, 06:26:57 PM »
All, thanks for the help. I searched the forum and couldn't find this...

I've been very successful working with cast iron going fitting to fitting. Now I'm trying to tighten up this project's pressure side and I'm noticing all my services that have male/female connections (i.e. copper or PVC) are not coming in with street fittings. They do populate so it's not that... I think it has something to do with the solder/glued joints.

Also, if there's any fix for the RED4WAY to come in with a double wye and street 45s that would be great. It's just works for a tee.

Thanks in advance!

The Fix to get Top and Bottom Elevation in the Floating Tooltip is to make sure in Options Connectors is "YES"

Just saw another post, look here...

I wonder if you can copy your pipe ITM file and make the new one have a minimum straight length...

I can say the offset rules are for close offsets, it won't help you in this situation.

If you have the rules set up, this will make your 90 to 90 offsets go 45 to 45 instead when they get to a certain distance. When I get closer than 3" with an offset it puts in two 45 degree bends for me instead.

We finally got DL to work, and I was wondering about this myself, but we're better off using a script or LSP to identify the problem spots after the fill, searching for pipe lengths less than (X).

Are there numbers already defined to the parts/sizes, just not in the ITM?  OR can you generate whatever number you want as you go?  If so, that shouldn't be too bad to automate.

I've not done it....but it is doable. Likely less than 20 hours worth of work to generate the code.

Custom Post might be the best option. You should be able to define about anything you want in there.
