Thanks for the response, tehnik. So no issues with the disc changer?
Did you check to see if your material parameters are the same/similar between setups.I am having problems with milling 3shape files. A lot of chipping in the margins... I actually dont know any more what to do. I just remill them and hope for the best... No such problem with exocad files from my own system. Also problem with 3shape megagen files when scanned with scan body. Millbox recognizes everything in the hole but does not mill it deep enough... I have modified the files with meshmixer (solid) and even then it is not 100% guaranteed to fit.
I'm also looking for more feedback on the DWX-52, with or without the puck changer. I primarily would like to know:
- how many units of zirc per month are you pushing through the mill
- how many years have you had it
- any servicing or issues that you've had with it
I've had great success with 2 DWX-50's and a 51. I don't doubt that Roland still makes a quality mill in the 52, but I'm wanting to get some feedback before just continuing with another Roland.
Right now, we are pushing around 450-500 units of zirc per month through each of our 3 mills. The 50's we've had for 5-6 years, with spindle replacements after about 2000 hours. One of our 50's just had a complete overhaul due to parting line issues and z-axis issues but it was a reliable workhorse.
CAP used to know a great deal about the Rolands since, before they were bought out by Zahn, were the distributors and knew how to repair them. Perhaps the older CAP people who knew a lot were replaced by new tech support people who know very little.Hey.
What did you do with pating line issues on Roland 50? I am experiencing same issue right now and I have tried a lot of things already..
About Roland 52, I am having once again some issues with it. I love the mill once it is works but otherwise it is a lot of headache, and since it is newer mill, CAP (our supporter) doesn't know much about fixing it yet....
