TurboCAD/CAM Machine Setup

NOTE: These steps only need to be performed once.

To setup a machine that produces nc code output suitable for conversion to ShopBot part file format (.sbp):

  1. From the TC main menu select CAM>Settings>Machine Setup. Select FANUC in the Machine dialog box.
  2. From the TurboCADCAM Setup – Machine menu, select CNC Setup. Configure CNC Setup for the default X&Y and Z axis max feeds. Enter desired speeds (e.g., 75 IPM) in the Max XY feed and Max Z feed dialog boxes.
    NOTE: These setting are in inches per minute. Be sure to convert your desired ShopBot setting (inches per second) to inches per minute.
  3. Click OK twice to save the machine setup.
