Ap100 and M00's

Ap100 and M00's

(OP)
I have AP100 - 2013.05. I used to write the g code for an LCE 655 and it worked great. Now I'm writing code for an FO and when it writes the code it puts an M00 after every M104. For the life of me I can't figure out why. It's easy to get rid of them in my editor, just tell it to erase all the M00's but I shouldn't have to. Just wondering if anyone might know why this is happening.

RE: Ap100 and M00's

When you go into part setup what machine setup are you using?

We only have one machine so it's that one. Amada 3015 fo.

Okay I found a setting that could make that happen. Make sure you have a material file opened for a problem in which this occurs.

Open the material file and click Pierce Location. On the right side there is a Property called After Cut Conditions. Expand this. There is a line labeled "information" that should be set to NONE. In your instance it may be set to PROGRAM STOP

The image below is showing the setting I suspect you have. Change it to NONE. You will have to make this change to every material file.

Good call jetrep. That was the problem. Seems kinda stupid to have it default to that. Thanks. I owe you one.

RE: Ap100 and M00's

So what software is that from because our AP100 looks nothing like that.

RE: Ap100 and M00's

(OP)
That is from AP100. When you click on the material button then click on pierce location that is what comes up.

The 1st software we had was back in 1995. I think it was DOS based. I can barely remember what that screen looked like.
