  3. Chain the hole as Air
  4. Yes. Set the entry option to "Helix only", then enable "Center helix on point". Set the plunge angle to 90 degrees, and set the helix radius to a small value. I usually use .01. The make sure you use a "Chained Point" for the entry hole.
  5. In 2D dynamic toolpath can I get the tool to plunge to depth in a pre drilled hole?
  6. What video card are you running Recent Nvida graphics drivers have cause many problems with Mastercam. I rolled mine back about 1 year and have had no further trouble
  7. "disable driver signature enforcement mode" lol buy the software and it might work correctly.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Hello, I have a probleme when I start Matercam 2017, it is offen very slow so I can't work, and sometimes works good, I desactivated Eventlog , i tried to start it with ''disable driver signature enforcement Mode'' but without success, please help me. Thanks.
  10. I'll look into that when I get back to work on Tuesday.
  11. I tried that, it made the surface square and didn't keep the profile shape.
  12. To your PM, sorry, I help on the forum, it leaves a trail for others to follow if they run into a similar issue. As to your question, historically, it has always been the best practice to work off the system origin for any rotary and/or 5 axis work
  13. Why do you have to set it to system origin? You cant just make your own origin for this?
  14. Well, there is NO way your OP2 posted out correct......everything posts to A0 B0 for your milling paths You need to set ALL of your WCS's to TOP......your planes will stay exactly as you have them set...

The other is there are some wildly large numbers in your plane settings causing some HUGE numbers to be output....I'm not digging into that....but it looks like you need to move your part to the system origin I suggest you get with your local reseller Reseller: CAD/CAM Consulting Services INC.

  15. Here is my file. C/L of rotation is 2.00" above plater, i have that set up. It is an unproven post the most generic post that comes with mastercam. Again self taught on this dont know how to edit posts. Part is orientated correctly for the machine otherwise the rest of the program would of been junk. 68A-2005.mcam
  16. YES ,,, i use it instead of a blend toolpath . i think i have found the solution for my problem ( output pattern ) ,,, thanks anybody have a newer Help fil ?? , this is from 2013
  17. Are you aware that the Triangle Mesh tool path is a 3 Axis path?
  18. Right click on the file >> Properties >> Unblock It was listed in the link to the thread as well
  19. CANT SEE ANYTHING IN THIS HELP FILE --- WHITE SCREEN ,
  20. A quick search of the forum Couple years old but https://spaces.hightail.com/receive/eYR2B/fi-752fca4e-9ca2-4ee6-904e-f25c7db7005d/fv-e07b1fb0-7787-45d3-ba88-5b19668e73d5/ModuleWorks_-_Documentation.chm
  21. hello i have a problem with the Triangular mesh toolpath , geodesic morph between 2 curves . anybody know where i kan find or download a detailed help fil or a manual ?
  22. Nah He just shared nothing.....his positions off...great, where's the file....my guess is he either doesn't have the WCS/Planes set up right OR he is using an unproven post that is not yet set up for his machine....another possibility is his part is not set up in the correct orientation for his machine. but all we know to this point is he gets wrong output from his post
  23. I think more people would show up with ideas if they could hear you... CAPS is considered yelling on Internet forums...
  24. Anyone here use it for molds? How much do you have to alter your gen settings to cut it and hold tenths?
  25. The VTM is a lathe so it has a Lathe control. I don't think lathes have the A,B and S method (I could be wrong as I have not seen a P300L) You need to have the DNC-DT option on the control to run large files
  26. Last week
  27. Do you have Helix support for all planes turned on in you control definition?
  28. Are setup correctly on the has trunion. Is this an older one were you need to figure out were the center of rotation is above the platter? Some wereason between .1 and .16 or so. So this is always origin?
