Hi All, here is a video tutorial which shows how to create a new Local Coordinate System in SprutCAM version 4. This is particularly useful if you need to set a machining datum, but cannot set it by using the normal technique (Transform - Locate zero). An example of this would be needing to use a hole or pocket centre as a datum.
Anyway, the example that I have used uses the 'Adapter.IGS' model that is installed by default with SprutCAM.
I start the tutorial with the datum already set as 'middle - middle - max' for the X - Y - Z axes, which for this example is not very useful, and is another example of where the normal datum setting method cannot be used.

You can view the video here

I hope you find it useful. If you have any questions about this, feel free to post them up.

Dave

Very useful

I guess the 4 axis machining works sort of the same way too


Thanks Dave

Hi Krisz,
Yes, If you need to find the centre of the rotational (4th) axis, then this method can be used to good effect.

That is great

I would like to see more videos about 4 and 5 axis machining because some parts of that is still not clear for me.
For example if you do a rotation after you set your xyz zero position will your zero positions move as with the rotation or they will stay at the same position etc.
I dont think the manual goes into too much details about the multy axis machining.
Also i would like to see a better explonation of the Job list in the machining tab.

Whenever you have time Dave smile.gif
