We are using milling sequences (5 axis) to create the laser 5 axis sequence because the NC sheetmetal provides only 2 axis. Am I doing it right or is there something in NC sheetmetal that allows me to work with 5 axis?
Nothing wrong that I can see. NC-Sheetmetal doesn't allow for
that type of sequence, but there is (obviously) no reason why
Pro/NC -Mill can't handle a 5 axis laser. You just have to get creative
with the cutting tool values and parameters to make sure you get what
You'll probably have to use something like an Aux NC Sequence to add a
cl command to control the on/off status of the laser. Then, you can
have something in the FIL portion of the post (assuming you use GPOST)
that handles the on/off command in the tape file.
