    VERISURF TOOLS for 2020

    Thanks Ernie, I report the bug that led to this fi, and I cannot get it to work. I set an "exception" tag for this file. It goes through the Setup routine and then say "Install Successful." However, it uninstalled the Original Verisurf and there is no option for Verisurf. I have to Re-install the Old file, but the Bug bugs me. Don Dawson Corona,CA

    so I did try as you suggested Colin and it worked pretty good. Thanks for that suggestion !

    I recommend just leaving the geometry as lines, and running a 2D Contour path as centerline. In the path, you can use the Toolpath Filter to create arcs, by analyzing the path. This is a much better way of generating arcs. Try using .002 for the total tolerance. Then, enable the Line/Arc Filter. Set your Cut Tolerance to 25% (.0005), and your Arc Tolerance will go to 75%. (.0015). Set your "min radius" to 0.01 and your "max radius" to 40 inches.

    You could spline the geometry and smooth it, if the issue is jagged edges.

    Creating letters question

    We are just using a stick font and making a pass on the centerline. I noticed that there is a arial true type font but its not usable for me. I would end up having to do a pocket pass, when a single pass on the centerline is all that's needed for us.

    VERISURF TOOLS for 2020

    If avg doesn't allow the installation and quarantines you can add an exemption for the file.

    VERISURF TOOLS for 2020

    The file size looks correct, It no longer installs some duplicate files that are installed by Mastercam 2020.

    Using a TrueType font will probably give you lines, arcs, and/or splines.

    Just took what was there and tweaked it was all. Yes Zeke, I will convert it to a regular Mastercam file. It will take me little bit of time to do so.

    Creating letters question

    This may be more curiosity than anything, and it may have been hashed over before and i'm not seeing it? Im using 2019 and when I hover my mouse over "create letters" in the wireframe area a window appears and says "create alphanumeric characters comprised of lines, arcs, and nurb splines". So when I create letters using generic stick font or box font it gives me only lines and no arcs? Im thinking there is a way to output as the "window" says, arcs? is there a setting I can change to achieve this?

    Ron, any chance of getting you to upload a regular 2020 MC file of this, for those of us who don't have the educational version on our work PCs?

    Ernie, I am running MasterCam 202 Patch 2. I cannot Install your Newer Version of VERISURF_2020_TOOLS-mc.exe Also, why is the NEWER version (67,855KB) smaller than Original version (115,862KB)? Don Dawson Corona, CA

    Yes Exactly. Yes just tels it how much you want to leave on the walls. You will notice I have 2 Deg tilt on the collision using the walls for avoidance so the floor Morph is not touching the wall just close to the root not the root fillet when you do the swarf that is what will clean up the wall and the fillet.
  21. A lot of people dont know about this R8 quickchange product https://mach-1.com/. If your still in the market for a knee or bed mill, its a slick alternative

  25. no it goes away i think my hand eye coordination leaves a lot to be desired ie huvering too long and being un certin about to do..........

    Learning How To Program an Impeller?

    I assume still using the Swarf toolpath? Is there a way to leave some wall stock on the 2 side Morph paths to let the Swarf finish it fully? This is not an actual part or project, hypothetical for learning only.....I am having fun trying to learn how and to see by making one small change to a multi-axis toolpath can make a world of difference!! Something good usually comes out of something bad....Covid-19 is bad, learning new skills and upgrading current skills is something good!!!
