Hello everyone and specifically Adev,

After some research on the internet I came across CamBam and would like to see if I can get it working for a TNC430 control. I have found the TNC151 post files to be a huge start to get there! I made already made some modifications and I easily get going with it.

Slowly I want to modify the post to more complex scenario's and incorperate all cycles (when I stumble on the need to use it). Based on some trails of mine I came upon the following:

- I found out that {$stock_x}, {$stock_y} etc do not give a negative value when this is entered in the Part properties. Anyone knows how to fix that?
- To precisely define stock geometry for simulations, I would like to make calculations to the stock positions, does anyone how this can be achieved?
- Can the maximum feed rate be changed? I can go up to F30000, so currently a bit slow
- An example face milling program is given below. The first is what I currently get (line 3 has all stock properties represented) and the second is what I would like to have as output.
