Hi Ness,

That works like inner tooling with axes reversed and surface is set up like drilling on edge

You or the developer team can call me when we need more information ūüėČ

All the best, Alex

Hi Alex, 

Thanks for this information.

Does the Polyboard Xilog file automatically set up the tooling face on the edge or do you have to set it manually once the Polyboard file loaded into Xilog?

Best regards,

Ness

Hi Grover and Ness,

With XilogPlus SCM, it’s simple you just need to have the tool set up to work with edge face

And don’t forget with edge 2 & 3 X becomes Z and edge 4 & 5 Y becomes Z

Hi Grover,

Our developer team is ready to add edge grooving in the Homag and SCM post processor if they have the coding information. This can be added to next version of Polyboard.

best regards,

Ness

Hello Ness,

My boss also wants to ask how long can they do the code for homag/scm in case after collaborating. Do we need to wait for the next version of Polyboard?

Thanks,

Grover

Hello Ness,

Thank you Ness. My boss wanted to add Biesse as option 3. Would it be fine for Polyboard to edge grooving¬†on this machine or it’s the same as SCM? What would you prefer among these three?

Thanks,

Grover

Hi Grover,

You can write a macro in Xilog (SCM) or WoodWop (Homag) that you call from the Polyboard inner tooling functions.

The problem with this is that you can only call the macro as an inner tooling, and this only let’s you machine on the face of you part and not one the edge. Hardware will let you machine a groove on the edge but doesn’t let you call a Xilog or WoodWop macro.

So today we don’t have a solution to send the correct code to machine directly the edge groove from Polyboard to SCM or Homag machines. As I said before we are willing to add this code if SCM or Homag tell us the code that we need to add. They have already given us the codes for edge drilling but not edge grooving.

If you could explain your problem and ask them to contact us we could talk to them to see if we can create a solution for you.

 Best regards,

Ness

Hello Ness,

Thanks for the reply. My boss said that he wants a screen to machine process. Is it possible to have this from Polyboard export to the machine directly using macro programming?

Can we clarify if we can achieve this using a WoodWop/SCM/Xilog tooling file then import it to Polyboard?

Thanks,

Grover

Hi Davo,

This hardware requires edge grooving which is currently only handled directly by Polyboard DXF output and Biesse CID or CIX post processors.

We would gladly add this function to to Homag/WoodWop and SCM/Xilog_plus output but we need to know the syntax of the PP instruction to be used.

So if you need to machine edge grooving directly from Polyboard you must ask Homag or SCM to send us the programming syntax and we will integrate this into our next version of Polyboard. 

Otherwise both machines will machine edge grooves but you will have to manually add this in WoodWop (Homag) or Maestro (SCM)

Best regards,

Ness

Hello Ness/Stefan/Alex,

My boss wanted to ask which CNC would you prefer that is 100% working with Polyboard for tooling.

Homag/Weeke(Woodwop) or SCM/Morbidelli (Maestro/Xilog)? He’s deciding to purchase another CNC machining center for milling like the attached picture.
