  • "PC Dmis Message" Problem

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a question in regards to the "PC Dmis" message window. Whenever I run my program in DCC mode, this window would always pop up notifying me about a tip change or a comment. I was wondering if I can disable this pop-up window? I am currently a student learning PC Dmis level 1 at a technical school.

    NO!!!!! DO NOT DISABLE THE MESSAGE WINDOW!!!!!! That message window is there to give you information about what's going on in the program. I hope no one here shows you how to do it. If you disable the window and something happens to the machine during execution, you could lose your job. On a better note, continue to go to school and learn all you can. BTW, I was a Machinist too before I was a programmer

      If it's comments, those are not from PC-DMIS, but from the program. Those are placed into or removed from the program by the programmer.

      Some pop-up messages can be turned of but please heed Darrollh's advice and leave them on until you are a guru. They may be a little annoying at times, but they can save your CMM and possibly your job.

      Oh, and welcome to the forum.

        Thank you very much for answering my questions. I will keep those pop up active for now until I get to the professional level. I have finish level 1 of the program and currently enrolled in level 2.

        What industry were you a machinist in Darrollh? I was a machinist in the aerospace industry. I had switch trades due to skin (Dermatitis) problem from the coolant.

          I was a Machinist in the automotive and medical device industry. I started many years ago with a Bridgeport and moved over to Davenport and NewBritian screw machines. When I went to Con/Met, I picked up CNC on an Okuma and Doosan. I moved to CMM/Quality because the management wanted button pushers on running production. Now, I work in automotive for a midsized facility in the Carolinas.

        That’s the same way how i started out in this trade. Learning to set up and operate the manual machines. Then I started working on the Makino, Haas and Mazaks. The Mazak has a language of its own so the. Implant had to send me to school for it.

          Yes. Mazaks use Conversational Language. Okumas are somewhat like that in the fact that things are a little bit different. Much like PC-D vs Calypso
