Defining the functionalities for path preparation (P-STUP-00060)

P-STUP-00060/

Defining functionalities for path preparation.

Description

This parameter defines the individual functionalities for path preparation. The individual functions can be enabled or disabled for testing or for performance reasons.

Parameter

configuration.channel[i].path_preparation.function

Data type

STRING

Data range

FCT_DEFAULT

The functions FCT_FFM | FCT_PRESEGMENTATION | FCT_SPLINE | FCT_POLY | FCT_CAX | FCT_CAX_TRACK | FCT_SEGMENTATION are available.

FCT_FFM

Free-form surface mode, #HSC [OPMODE 1 CONTERR 0.01], #HSC [OPMODE 2]

FCT_PRESEGMENTATION

Linear pre-segmentation in HSC mode

FCT_SPLINE

#HSC[], AKIMA, B-Spline, G150/G151

FCT_POLY

#CONTOUR MODE[], G61, G261/G260

FCT_CAX

C axis processing, i.e. the spindle is embedded in the NC channel.

FCT_CAX_TRACK

#CAX TRACK, tracking an axis according to the contour angle

FCT_SEGMENTATION

For dynamic segmentation of the path contour, e.g. if the curvature of a polynomial segment varies significantly.

The following functions must also be enabled:

FCT_LIFT_UP

Automatic lifting/lowering of an axis (path-based coupling).
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_LIFT_UP

FCT_EMF

Edge machining (sharp angle contours).
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_EMF

FCT_EMF_POLY_OFF

Edge machining inactive with polynomials.

Contrary to the setting with FCT_EMF, edge signal generation is masked when path polynomial generation is active in the channel. Polynomials are generated for smoothing G261 or when BSpline is active. The resulting geometry is then tangential.

Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_EMF_POLY_OFF

 

FCT_SYNC

Synchronise an axis to a path group.
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_SYNC

FCT_PRECON

Optimised planning using #HSC[BSPLINE].
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_PRECON

FCT_LIFT_UP_TIME

Automatic lifting/lowering of an axis (time-based coupling).
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_LIFT_UP_TIME

FCT_PTP

Dynamically optimised smoothing of the complete contour.
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_PTP

 

FCT_M_PRE_OUTPUT

Pre-output of M/H functions (microwebs).
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_M_PRE_OUTPUT

FCT_SURFACE

HSC machining with Surface Optimiser
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_SURFACE

FCT_SEG_CHECK

Block segmentation in combination with path-controlled offset of M functions (dwell time), see P-STUP-00070
Example: FCT_DEFAULT | FCT_SEG_CHECK
