    Angry Haas TM1 Stepped face milling

    I am very very new to the TM1 mill, struglling to master face milling with stepped cuts. Basically I have a block I need to take 16mm off of and using the VQC code I can't get it to take 1mm of at a time and I don't want to write 16 1mm programs using the other facemill program. Any ideas, i must be missing something.

    Cheers

    James

    I believe you can do a program say #5 to locate the tool to the edge of the work, make a program #6 to move z down 1mm and mill the face then return to the start point, the end of program 6 should be m99, right after the start point in program 5 add M98 P6 L10, this will call program 6 and repeat for 10 times.
