GCode is Complicated
G-Wizard Makes it Easy

Why do I suddenly get 0 rpm in G-Wizard for certain combinations?

Bob,

I have a Gwizard question…

When I am calculating speed/feeds on smaller drills, very long drills, and sometimes with certain end mills I get either no results (zeros), or I get minimum RPM error. My minimum speed is 100RPM, but I should be far above that speed. If I play with various cut depths I can make the calculator work, sometimes just changing the cut depth by .1″ will make me loose my results.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Josh

This mostly happens with twist drills.  When G-Wizard finds a cut it thinks is completely untenable, it sets RPM to 0.  There should be a message in the Hint area that suggests why.

It may be possible to drill a hole deeper than G-Wizard will give feeds and speeds for, but you will have to develop a method that is trial and error.

Having a custom deep hole cycle will help you to get there.  Our G-Wizard Editor can create custom deep hole cycles.  For more information, see this page:
