This article describes how to restart a milling job on a DWX-50 after a specific step, so you don't have to restart the entire job. These steps allow you to restarting a partially milled job with minimal remilling
Determine where you are in the mill job
- What burr was the mill holding when the mill stopped?
- Which units were skipped?
If the mill is holding the 2 mm then it's in the middle of the following steps:
If the mill is holding the 1 mm then it's in the middle of the following steps:
If the mill is holding the .6 mm then it's on the following step:
If the mill is holding the .3 mm then it's on the following step:
Once you have determined where you are on the mill job, you can now start the calculation at that spot. For this example, we will restart from External Finishing.
Restarting the Job
**Note** When determining where you are in the job, we recommend selecting the step before the step you think you are on. The reason for this is so the mill can gradually go into where it was and not go right into it, which would risk breaking a burr.
1. Click the step you will be starting on.
2. Hold the Shift key and click the last step in the strategy. This will highlight (in red) everything in the selection.
3. Right-click on any of the highlighted steps, and click Post Processor.
4. The Post Processor window will pop up. Type whatever you want in the text box. This will be the name of the file you, which will now be available in VPanel.
5. Go to VPanel, and start the job you just named.
