I installed this on my home workstation this morning

It looks like all the geometry creation tools ( hole wizard, pierce point etc)

are gone.

The only things in the menu are Screenshot, Notepad, Calculator and Verisurf Planes.

The Verisurf Planes flyout appears to be empty

After Installing I found that the tool bar Icons for 'Name Points' and 'Gap Flush' are blank. I can select them and they seem to function but are missing the Icons. In the drop down 'Name Points' Icon is blank as well but seems to function properly. The 'Help File' appears to be empty. When I click the Icon nothing happens. It looks like it is trying to find something but then it never does.

 

Is there any chance that you have a description of what everything is or does? For instance I noticed a new feature 'Gap Flush' and wondered what it does.

^Ditto on this too!

 

This was the first Error message:

Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered

Display Driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 333.11 stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

 

To be followed by:

Windows detected that this program did not run correctly!

I installed this on my home machine on the 17th and most of the tools were missing.

Yesterday I downloaded a new copy and installed it on my work machine.

I got much better results.. everything installed and all the tools I've tried so

far work properly...

I'll try a fresh install on my home rig over the weekend

Thanks :thumbup:

Thank You Ernie. Life is good again!  I was dreading doing a part in X8 without hole axis! Done in 3 seconds!

X8 has hole axis in the model prep drop down.

what it's missing, and is a tool I use daily is "pierce point".

I figured out the problem... I was still running beta2 on my home machine

Once I installed beta3, the Verisurf add-on ran properly

Won't work with tapered holes like verisurf tools will, I have requested this though.

Will this work with the public release of X8?

 

Brian I have it running in the latest version of McamX8

"Fit Curve From Chain" crashes X8 every time. Right after you pick your chain,

Every time I close X8, MC crashes with the following error. I'm not sure if it's because there's something wrong with the notepad feature in Verisurf tools or if the latest version of Verisurf tools has not been updated for the final release of X8.

My system is telling me that the download contains Malicious software... I never seen this while downloading any previous versions of the verisurf tools,

Is there another way to get it ?

Chrome? Just change the filename from "Unconfirmed whatever.crdownload" to Verisurf for X8.exe
