Post for mazak variaxis

Hello,

I'm looking for a post for a mazak variaxis 500-5x. It doesn't have the tcpc option, it has the tilted work planes, rotation and 5 axis options enabled. The generic mazak post works some what. I've had to add p0 to the g53.1 commands to get rotations to work, change the g68.2 output to i j k instead of ABC but after multiple rotations the tool tries to go off the side of the table to machine there instead.  Running one operation at a time works if the table starts at a0 and b0 each time. Has anyone got an edited post or one that works well? 

 

Many thanks!

I am not a 100% sure what model the machine was but have a look at the attached post.

Hello Dean!


Did it happen that you tested the post below or found a proper one for simultaneous 5 axis as I am in search of it?

Thanks
