Gunther, do you have all those solids loaded in the new chook?

Ron,

only some few "self made" solids as a reference are included in my chook.

But all the solids that you have seen can be downloaded from the manufacturars web site. ("Allmatic" for example)

Once you know how to setup the fixtures you can almost load/merge everything to your current Mastercam part. Easy!

 

In this video I'll show you more types of fixtures.

Thank you Günther, you do a brilliant job. Will we be able to model our own fixturing for this app, and what format will it have to be?

This is really a great job!

That new fixture library is awesome and should already be native in Mastercam...thank you!

Thx guys.

 

@pip: No special format. The fixtures are normal Mastercam part files.

 

I'm going to make another video. It will show you how to setup fixtures with the 2nd chook.

Thanks you,  now I can use  MC2017  more often. My operators prefer  your setup sheet.

Great job. I was holding out trying 2017 until you had your setup sheets ready.  The fixturing is something I have always wanted to try.  It looks like you make it easy.  Does it matter what file type is downloaded for the fixtures?

All, I have not been able to play with this beta like I did X9.

 

So, what registry keys do I need to remove before uninstalling beta 1 to install the most recent beta?

Look at the Mastercam website they have all the needed information. If you get the beta emails it is listed in there as well.

I never messed with the registry, I just uninstalled the previous beta and installed the new. Haven't had an issue yet.

I tried but I got an error.

 

My apologies... will some mod move this to the 2017beta thread please?  I just realised it's in the X+ thread.  My bad guys.

I noticed the cycle times are way off in the 2017 PC1 release of 2017.  Do I need to change something to correct these cycle times?  Perhaps something in the Window's regional settings?
