Autonaming Files Using Remote
An even niftier trick is to autoname the files the
same as the NC program number in your CNC memory.
For example with a Fanuc, you code may be something
N10 X1000 Y1000
All you need do is set the colon : as the autoname
and dump out the file through your CNCs RS232. It
gets automatically stored as 1256.
Autonaming now supports multiple files, so you
can dump out all the files and ProDNC will split
up the data and store them back on the computer
as individual files with the same filename as the
NC program name. Works great on Fanucs.
