    What is it with this?

    mark id love to see the file that created that many entities, just curious.

    What is it with this?

    Nothing I see.... Though I do import solids without edge curves...I make only the wireframe that I need

    haas low air pressure alarm

    In working on a 2000 VF 6 Haas mill. I'm getting a low air pressure fault. PS is good,contacts are closed. Pressure is good also. From the print the wire goes to P19 There's something else plugged in there...it's on the large card ,lower left in back electrical panel. The print shows an opt o coupler in use..but I couldn't find a user replaceable device on the control board. I could use some help!! Mike S

    What is it with this?

    Every time I bring in a solid I end up with THOUSANDS of BS entities. So many that it really drags down my PC. I just deleted over 750,000 entities from importing a vise I had modeled that had 27 solid features. I think I first noticed this in 2017 and it keeps getting worse.

    radius tool in verify poor results

    I have a simple 2 x 2 square that I'm putting a .25 radius around the top with a "roundover" tool. I created the tool myself and in verify the round it puts on the part is 3 different angles without anything at all that resembles a radius. I have the precision slider all the way up. in backplot it looks fine even in verify if I stop it ,it looks like the tool is only contacting in 3 points and makes straight lines between them. surely there is some way to bump up the precision on this. oops this is 2018 but looks the same in 19
  11. Well, I'll be. I can see a benefit to this. Thanks Cjep
  12. Yes, you can set operations defaults local to the control def file by selecting the control def without going through the machine def.

    Rotation output for 5x post

    It worked perfect!!! Thanks so much guys
  14. Interesting. I have never seen that setting in the control default.

    Mastercam 2018 hle not working

    Hello Ian, There's a solution to this issue in this thread: https://www.emastercam.com/forums/topic/94643-mastercam-2018-hle-not-working/?do=findComment&comment=1197745
  16. I know that setting. It's set in the control default. I'm talking about when you ha e a program where the tools jump around and you drag and drop those operation into another file with a similar part. It resorts the tools in sequential order. Do I have to uncheck that in my active group I'm importing to?

    Computation Reporting Error

    You mentioned you're working with surfaces, what was the native file? Did you start with a solid model? Was the model sent to you as a step or parasolid X_T, X_B?

    Current toolpath is not for 4-axis machine

    I was getting the same thing, except mine said 3-axis. I was like, duh, it's a 4 axis program.
  20. Machine group, tool settings, assign tool numbers sequentially.
  21. If they aren't in numericsl order they import in order and you have to go thru and renumber your tools

    Current toolpath is not for 4-axis machine

    Now its gone. Go figure.

    Computation Reporting Error

    In a Hybrid Toolpath for a pretty complex riser frame, part is 27" long. About a minute into the toolpath computation (not threading yet) I am getting a "Computation Reporting Error". Any brother or sisters seen this at all, I am def on the right plane, tooling clearance is legit. Using containment chain region, a few surfaces and fixture as avoidance. No crazy parameters set. Tried with and with out Z depths. Any comments would be appreciated to this newbie....;) Thanks Michel Boissy.
  25. Why is Mastercam giving me this "error" when trying to verify a simple NCI transform (translate) operation? I can simulate it, but this message comes up everytime stealing the focus, thus annoying the heck out of me.

    Curve All Edges flattens wireframe geometry

    Yes, This has been a huge time saver. It used to be a 3 step process, sometimes requiring hours of fixing tiny overlaps or tiny gaps in the projected curves. I used to work with a lazy programmer who would set his chaining tolerance to .005/.010 when he ran into these gap issues. That worked, but 2 years later when you open his file with a normal gap setting, it blows up in your face. The new 2d/3D Create edge command is for the most part self healing and creates tight consistent chainable entities with one mouse click

    Curve All Edges flattens wireframe geometry

    2D/3D as mentioned. I believe it was 2017 that changed this and it honestly made my workflow faster. Before, it was create curves, then project. Now I just set 2D Z where I want it and click away. That looks like a pretty rigid washing machine. Maybe it will last more than 3 years.
  28. Hi, has anyone else had an issue that when you click on the mastercam icon to open the program a window pops up that says (Failed to initialize COM!) and the program never opens. If anyone can help with this it would be great.

The repeability and accuracy was excellent for a caliper, but of course you have to calibrate it to a ring first.
