  3. Yes, yes, we will all have to be banned.
  4. if you log in on the tab in mastercam you can see your maint, state, i think i had an issue i had to update the nethasp codes to get some files, but im not 100% thats wat it wooz
  5. Any reason why I might be getting this error when accessing the tech exchange? is the exchange only for industrial licenses? Our education maintenance is current and everything shoudl be fine. hanks
  6. //in c++ something like this, offset would be how much the window sticks out to the left, or right.. //from winexe.cpp //copyright 2021(c) byte /*Update a Button Windows Positions*/ void UpdateWindowPos(HWND hWndParent, HWND hWndChild, int offset) { if (hWndParent) { if (hWndChild) { RECT lPRect; GetWindowRect(hWndParent, &lPRect); lPRect.left = lPRect.right - 25 - offset; lPRect.right = 25; lPRect.bottom = 25; MoveWindow(hWndChild, lPRect.left, lPRect.top, lPRect.right, lPRect.bottom, TRUE); UpdateWindow(hWndChild); } } }
  7. "Is there a way yet to dock the toolpath manager, and the other managers OUTSIDE of your main mastercam window?" No, the mfc framework docking support only applies inside the window. This kind of behavior is possible inside the windows api, but you would need a custom programming solution to accomplish this.. This github project creates 3 child windows that follow a parent window around and act as buttons, the concept is different but the principle and functions used are the same. https://github.com/xx4g/twlekezexe I am translating the project to c#, so you will be able to emulate this in mastercam 2022 without mods, eventually

    Toolpath Manager Frustrations

    I've been right click/copy/paste or right click/cut/paste since the first release of X I am WAY too fast fingered for drag/drop

    I'd recommend to Just use safe travel practices. It's here and it's not going away anytime soon. At least your heading out just ahead or at the beginning of flu season and not the hightide of it.

    It's not "docked", but it is persistent.

    Toolpath Manager Frustrations

    Correct me if I am wrong but was this always a feature? I seem to remember the right click/hold/drag/drop was the only way to move toolpaths until recently. Or maybe I am misremembering. I do a combination of both in terms of copy/pasting and drag/dropping. I have had a few hiccups here and there and I can say that it is definitely annoying, but not that big of a deal. I personally kinda like the toolpath manager and in fact, I am not even sure what they could do to make it more intuitive. I am sure there are many things but I am not a UX designer so I dunno. It packs a lot of functionality into that little strip of pixels! Is there a way yet to dock the toolpath manager, and the other managers OUTSIDE of your main mastercam window? Say I want to have a huge graphics window and I want to "mount" my managers on my other monitor somewhere so I can expand it in size and open it up a bit more?

    You Can select "hole geometry" for using things like 2D Highspeed roughing operations where the hole geometry is the air region. You can also tell it to only do a plunge entry on those specific locations by choosing the point as your 'center on point' geometry with entry motion set to 'plunge only' Still with OptiRough, you need to use stock models to define where and where not to cut. I just made a program like this and using stock models was still the best way

    Your Ops Tree organization looks great. Something critical to note > never use "right-click" to 'select operations'. You should always 'left-click, to select, then right-click to perform an action'. Take the extra half-second to make sure the 'correct Ops are selected, and nothing else is included'. I always, always, do this when selecting something to move/copy: Left-Click on a different Operation, from my "target operation". (make sure 'something else' is selected.) Left-Click on my 'Target Operation'. (The first Op I want to select. Doesn't matter if I am selecting a single-operation, or a range.) If needed, I will use CTRL or SHIFT, in combination with an additional Left-Click(s), to select whatever 'group of ops', I'm trying to select. Finally, I will then Right-Click on my Target Operation, and continue holding the [RMB], until I've highlighted the 'Destination Operation'. When I let go of the [RMB], I'll then have my Move/Copy/Cancel options, and choose the appropriate command. (The important part of that sequence is "selecting something else" (puts the focus on a different Operation), then "[LMB] selecting the actual Target Operation". This ensures that I've "deselected any previously active selection" [clicking on a different op], and made sure that there aren't "other selected Ops" which I wasn't aware of. It is super easy to accidentally select a "range of ops", without being aware of that happening, if you attempt to use the [RMB] to select the Operation on which you are attempting to perform an action. I always "left-click, release, then right-click", in order to ensure proper selection...) Are you, by chance, programming on a laptop? Or are you working on a desktop? The reason I ask > is because of the touchpad. On my laptop, I have my computer set to "disable the touch pad, when a mouse is inserted". (Technically; I unchecked "leave touchpad on, when mouse is inserted".) In addition, there is also a "track pointer" or "point stick". This is more difficult to disable. You may have to delve into the Device Manager, to disable the "HID Compliant" device, underneath "Mouse and pointing devices". Finally, depending on your hardware and OS (Windows 10) > you may benefit from disabling the 'Service' for touchpad & handwriting: Press [Windows Key] + [R] (Run) In the 'Run' dialog (Open), Type 'services.msc', and press [Enter] If prompted; enter an Admin Username + Password Locate the 'Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service' name (in the Services List), and Right-Click Choose 'Stop'. Note that if stopping this Service is helpful > you'll need to remember to do this each time you boot up your computer. There is a 'Free Tool' from Sys Internals (amazing site, and books!!!), called 'Autoruns', which can be used to permanently delete a Service, but be very careful if you choose to go this route. (And test, test, test, before you choose to Delete a Windows Service.) If you accidentally delete a Service that is essential, there is no easy way to restore it. You may be able to 'Repair' a desktop Application to restore the service, but it could also require you to completely reinstall Windows, so be careful! By the way, 'Autoruns' is one of the most extensive tools available to give you control over 'auto-start' programs, allowing you to really clean-up your system.

    Toolpath Manager Frustrations

    I never drag /drop in the ops manager I position the Red Arrow of Doom where I want the op to go, then cut/paste I have my mouse sensitivity set high and it's too easy to screw things up dragging and dropping

    One thing that I found out by making the mistake of accidentally moving operations around. Make sure that you have the operation(s) that you want to move highlighted and nothing else before dragging. I've had an operation that I had no intention of moving highlighted, right clicked on the operation that I did want to move, drag and let go only to figure out that it never actually selected the operation that I right clicked on and ended up moving the operation that was originally highlighted. I thought that I was going nuts or that there was a bug until someone from MC pointed this out to me. Now I'm super careful to make sure that everything I need to move is highlighted before dragging anything around.

    See the attached photo. Select "Keep Scale" first then select you scale (input 1.0).
  20. Sorry for the delay, been out on surgery recovery. Anyway, Thank you everyone for the good info y'all provided. This is the kind of stuff I needed to know.

    Toolpath Manager Frustrations

    Thanks, lots of good information Colin. Somebody (I think it was you, Colin) showed me the toolpath selection menu. Very useful. I do use the right click menu to move toolpaths around. The biggest issues I run into are, sometimes I'll move things, and the wrong thing gets moved because I clicked on it, and it didn't select it for whatever reason, and sometimes while mousing over the toolpath menu, My finger will bump one of the mouse buttons for a tiny second, and boom, everything that was selected gets moved. Granted, those are my own misclicks, or whatever, but something about it just feels off. As far as the organization, I've been trying to do it like this.

  25. Hi, I would like to retreat current Main Program No (O1111, refer attachment) and Subprogram No (O1610, refer attachment) by using following Focas script: Focas1.ODBPRO odbpro = new Focas1.ODBPRO(); code = Focas1.cnc_rdprgnum(pHdl, odbpro); json["Current_SubProgram"] = odbpro.data; json["Current_MainProgram"] = odbpro.mdata; According to https://www.inventcom.net/fanuc-focas-library/program/cnc_rdprgnum, result of cnc_rdprgnum should get me sub & main program no in .data and .mdata properties. However, we found that only main program no (O1111) is returned in both properties. Anyone here encounter similar issue or have successfully extracted current Subprogram No via Focas? Appreciate if you could share me your advise and experience. Thank you.
