Re: Setting zero on SRM-20

On older machines we had buttons/handwheels etc to position the axis.
SRM-20 only has one button ON/OFF, so on all machines we now use VPanel to move and set the axis.

Re: MDX-540 Post Processor

SolidWorks CAM 2018 Fanuc 6M,11M, 0M etc are all similar. Have a look at the MDX-PRO2_PRO_NC_CODE_EN manual that came with your machine, then compare. NC files are just TEXT. MDX-540 VPanel will accept any Text file and long as it is valid NC codes. These guys at Hawk Ridge have nice videos. https:/...

Re: GX-24 Cutter - Cutting halfway up and only on the X-Axis

With your page set in Corel, if you have your design at the top of the page, just try putting it at the bottom of the page limits, or vice versa.

Re: How to remove top surface from cutting when using Modela Player 4 on MDX 40

Hi. I think you mean you do not want to cut the top surface, just the features below the top. In this case you can set the start height of the cutting process to be a small amount below the top surface. Modela Player and SRP Player cut between the top and bottom values and ingnore the rest of the mo...
