Support / Fusion nc import optimum settings
August 31, 2018, 02:58:21 PM
Hi all has any one found the 2 tolerance perimeters the import function uses?
when i import tool paths i get 2 remarks in the top right of the module, one is the circular interpolation to straight lines but the other is
"Set both tolerance parameters > 0.0 in order to reduce the toolpath."
but fusion does not let you set 0.0 as a tolerance so is it suposed to be 0.1 0.001 0.0001 or am i looking at the wrong tolerance setting?
General Discussion / Question regarding new custom tool
December 01, 2017, 02:48:05 PM
Hi all would like to ask what others have achieved in regards to a long reach tool and how far of an offset to the face plate on axis-6, im planning to cast some different head attachments to i have options for hard to reach areas, it goes without saying the further you go the less accurate or ridged it will be.
the question i guess is would it be unreasonable to expect a 4kw spindle on a kr140 2.4m reach robot to work with a 600mm offset spindle, or is their some limit to what the KRC2 ed05 can deal with & will this put excessive load on the wrist?
materials to be cut would be hardwood through to soft foam.
Thanks for reading
General Discussion / system requirements

Got a question regarding performance of the rhino grasshopper and prc as a whole.
my current set up is i3 4gb ram with hd4000 graphics
this suffers with most simulations and straight up crashes if i try to test for collisions but does work.
but would like a little more real time simulation and bigger tool paths.

planed system replacement is a workstation with:
Intel Xeon X5670 Six Core
Nvidia Quadro FX1800

would be grateful for any recommendations or experience with different system spec's
just trying to get a benchmark of whats needed to run prc well.

Thanks All
