Fanuc post processor, subprograms for pocketing

Hi,

I have 500 pockets to machine that are all identical in size.  I need to generate a sub program for the pocket (circular movement) and then call it with M98 in the main program 500 times.  When i try to use the Fanuc generic post processor, it does not do this after i select the options for subroutines files, patterns etc.  I have the most updated version of the post processor as well (december 2022).    Is there any solution for this? 

Thanks

Mike

Hello,

 

I do not have a certain project, it is for a future job.  Just imagine 500 pockets the same size in multiple rows.  Is there anyway to get the FANUC post processor to create a subprogram for the pocket.

Hmm that works for me with no problems using the Fanuc post.
I only enabled the property "use Subroutines" with the "Patterns" option:

I´ve attached the sample part file for reference.

thanks for this.  It says linear pattern for the 2d path?  Did you pick contour or pocket?  I do not "pattern" toolpath anywhere unless you renamed it?

What if its not linear or no pattern.  Imagine 500 pockets scattered?  How could this work then>?
