How would you capture and differentiate the 3+2 axis machining and 5 axis machining. For example when I have 3+2 axis insert a command and when in 5 axis insert other command.
What is it you need specifically? Possibly have your post capture if there is MULTAX in the code for 5-axis path.
hi, sorry for my late response. Yes, for example, a newer controller has special commands that allow having the part on a different location on the table without the need to repost. For Haas these functions are G254 and G234 , one is 3+2 axis machining and the other one is for 5 axis continuous machining. How would post one function or the other?
Sorry I never noticed this response! A great resource would be AustinNC. In general though, maybe have an if/then where if it sees MULTAX then it would output the G234. Not as nice, but you could also manually enter a CL Command in the toolpath.
