  • Axis or alignment how to

    Hi - New user filling in for a co-worker that recently passed. I am programming offline for a cnc gantry machining center. My question is how to match cad axis to machine axis.. In the pic the white line with dot would be the machining -Z- axis .
    Thanks

    This can be done a few ways

    The most simple way, in my opinion, is to open the model in its
    native cad software and transform the trihedron there so that it is
    already facing the correct way when you import it into PCD.

    If this is not possible, PCD has cad transformation tools. Go into
    operation/graphic display window/transform. Using this dialog box, you can
    rotate your model about the trihedron to square your model to the axis of the machine on your screen

    If you are dealing with multiple models, there are a few extra steps you may have to do, if that is the case
    check back and I will do my best to help you through. This should get you going in the right direction at least
    Beep beep beep..

      Puoi utilizzare la funzione f5 e vai in pezzo/cmm e nella parte impostazione pezzo, imposti le cordinate del pezzo posizionato in macchina rispetto a quelli della macchina rispetto al posizionamento che ti serve, e vedrai che ti troverai perfettamente il tastatore posizionato come tu desideri
      ps: Usalo sempre e solo prima che inizi il programma

        English translation: You can use the function f5 and go to workpiece / cmm and in the workpiece setting part, set the coordinates of the workpiece positioned in the machine compared to those of the machine with respect to the positioning you need, and you will see that you will find yourself perfectly the probe positioned as you wish ps: Use it always and only before the program starts.
