mcam-content file?

Recommended Posts

Most of my home brewed 5X posts stated life as Version X or X2 Generic Fanuc mill posts.

I've decided it's time to up grade them and downloaded a copy of the 

MC2020 Generic Fanuc 5X Mill post

It contains a small file with the file extension  "mcam-content"

can anyone tell me what it's purpose is and what to do with it ?

This appeared with 2020 and I guess its goal is to copy some mastercam files (mainly machine/control def) in the right directories.

I would say yes (however I didn't try yet). You can find additional infos in Mastercam 2020 offline help.

A .mcam-content file is  a .zip archive containing files in the Mastercam folder structure.  If you drag a .mcam-content onto Mastercam (or double click it) it will unzip and copy the files to the corresponding Mastercam directories automatically. 

If you are a power user, change the extension to .zip and place the files manually.
