Custom Tool Creation

Recommended Posts

I am having a problem creating a tool with custom geometry on one particular seat of mastercam 2019. On one station using the same process and dxf files it works, on the second not. I am constantly getting a "Probem with custom geometry file or data" error. There has to be a setting in Tool Manager that I am not seeing. Any thoughts?

Is the tool drawn on a level within MC?

No we are importing it from a DXF File.

Can you share the dxf...

 

and are you trying to create the tool via inside of Mastercam or inside of the Tool Manager?

That determines the best way to present the geometry

Thanks for the help, but no joy. I am going to try and update M/C and see if that helps. Like I said earlier everything works fine at another work station. This is a freshly installed seat that I am using as I just started here this week. I will keep at it.

Thanks again you guys here are great.

Just to close this out, upgrading was the ticket.
