HOLE AXIS FOR X5.
Posted 10 November 2010 - 01:51 AM
On the off chance some of you have never heard about hole axis it is a free tool Verisurf gives away to all Mastercam users worldwide. It was developed by my boss Ernie Husted many years ago. There are also some free tools like minimum bounding box that will give you the smallest material for a paort and also create a WCS on it, and some free point making on surface tools with vector ability for 5 axis programming. If you have any questions or comments please post them up. Enjoy and thanks to Ernie for making them available.

The X4 Add-on has it, but Pierce Point had been left off the last X5 copy I downloaded

Everytime I used Screen Shot, X5 crashes immediately saying, "The application you were running has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I downloaded Verisurf for X5 from the download tab ...
When trying to save it and then run, it would not work ... had to RUN instead ...
Also, the Hidden Line icon converted all my solids to surfaces ...

Are you administrator on have unrestricted access to certain folders on the computer that Verisurf and Mastercam reside in?

How does hole axis determine the top vs. the bottom of the hole?
P.S. thanks to verisurf for this fantastic tool!

Thanks a lot for sharing the Verisurf program. Back when the initial Verisurf add-on for X4 was released, some people, including myself had problems with the post install. Strange artifacts from Verisurf made its way into Mastercam after the successful install such as when an error message would pop-up they would appear to come from Verisurf instead of Mastercam. Or, the Verisurf menu on the toolbar at the top would not show up until you moved the mouse over the title. A couple other strange things happened as well but I can't remember. In any event, a new add-on was released not long after that and it seemed to fix all these problems. Now, with the new X5 version you provided, it seems to do the same things again as did the X4 version. I was wondering if anyone else has seen any strange behaviour like this or can you recall what it was you did to fix these issues. I believe I obtained the download from the 3dgage site a long time ago, so I apologize if it is not the same download.
Thanks for any help and thanks again for the software,

Thanks to anyone willing to take a look.
P.S. Trying to get all the points to be at the OD.

Is there any workaround that anyone knows of?

I just tried to download the file. The download worked but the verisurf does not.
