    Hi Guys

    I do not know if the standard mach3 fusion post will work for the 8 station ATC Denford Triac or if it will need editing, and if so how.

    Many thanks

    Steve

    Try running it and see.

    Although a basic Fanuc 0M post processor may be more suitable, and there are a couple Denford post processors in the autodesk library at http://cam.autodesk.com/posts/

    That's normally because you're using an unsuitable tool type (i.e. a drill, and not an endmill), a toll with too big a diameter, and/or the toolpath settings aren't letting it run at tight enough of an arc to fit in the hole.

    You might want to have a look at this video for various ways to bore a hole - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKbEzSleF14
    (NYCNC vids are usually pretty good, and their Fusion Friday videos have a good few tips in them)

    Morning m_c

    Tar very much for the help. Yes I like the videos that mycnc John does, learnt good bits from him. In fusion I was just trying to drill 2 3.5mm holes I selected a 3.5mm twist drill. I will have to go back over fusion videos again beacuse no matter how simple the thing I try to do fusion says no!
    Thanks again

    If you're trying to drill the holes, then you need to use the drilling option.

    Bore is essentially a variation of a 2D pocket, and uses milling cutters to helix/spiral into holes.

    As mc says it is for making holes but they are interpolated holes. So you can use a 6 mm end mill to bore a 6.8 mm hole ready for an M8 tap etc
    Don't need a 6.8 mm drill etc
