@pinoy-cnc, you simply set the A or B axis in angular mode on MASSO and generate gcode from your CAM software that has the angle information for A/B axis.

Thank you masso support.

How about the on and off of of the Oscillating knife is there an output to be used and how to control this using the Gcode?



Thanks

MASSO documentation has these two commands, you will need to research how to use them and the connection of the outputs.

11.47.M62 Turn On Digital Output Synchronized With Motion​


This command is used to switched On any of the 16 auxiliary outputs.


11.48.M63 Turn Off Digital Output Synchronized With Motion​


This command is used to switched Off any of the 16 auxiliary outputs.



Regards,

Arie.

Thanks Arie,

To masso support;

I needed to write or rewrite the post processor of masso on sheetcam to used this M62 and M63 digital output?

Hi Masso,

It's possible that I will used the spindle output to turn ON and OFF the Oscillating knife ?

Also I have sheetcam with license and I can used the post Masso sheetcam processor for tangent knife. I don't know if m3 and m5 are present in sheetcam processor?

Thanks

I am curious how your tangential knife project progressed. I am also thinking of adding this to my machine in the near future.

:)

Have a great day!
