    How to finish this

    Hi I would like to get some help with attach part. I was thinking to start with operation one putting round stock into big chuck and making flats. Then flip it put those flats into wise and shape rest of it. What toolpaths would be the best for roughing and then finishing. Any help appreciated. 3-480-052-012.x_t 3-480-052-012.stp

    Mastercam 2020 Constantly shuts off without warning.

    The SDK team found a memory leak in one of my chooks, soo maybe that was the problem, if that's the case its weird it only affected Mastercam 2020 not 2018, there was a function I was using called ps_tag_to_mc_ents, I guess it is allocating memory with malloc and I missed the note where it said I needed to call free()

    Lathe overlap feed rate

    My parts are generally between 36in and 70in diameter its the same ratio as you but on a larger scale

    Lathe overlap feed rate

    I generally leave .003 to .005, granted my parts are 3" dia and under. The semi finish for me would to chain the vertical wall only and go from outside to in. You would probably have to change the tool comp side and mess with the lead in/out to get the right result
  16. Wow… thanks for the informations. Roger as asked, i've send you an email. Thanks for all!

    Lathe overlap feed rate

    no matter how much stock i leave the problem is the tool geometry FYI between 0.010 and 0.050 depends on the part

    Thanks G!
  19. SearchManager in the NET-Hook API currently only supports Mill type operations. A simple C++/CLI project that creates an interop DLL that your NET-Hook add-in can use would be simple to create. You would add a reference to this DLL. just like you do for the NETHook3_0.DLL to get access to the functionality in the standard API. I have such a project. If you email -> SDK.mastercam.com and let us know you company contact information and what version of Mastercam this is for, I can probably set you up. It appears you are looking for these data items in each operation - Operation Name (comment) Operation ID (number) Operation Type ("type" code) Operation Tool Number (and probably also the Tool Slot Number) “Toolpath Visibility” status “IsDirty” status “Selected” status “Posting” status (Is the operation ghosted?) *Are there more?

    how much stock are you leaving on for the vertical walls (Z)?

    Maybe "they" will just make it disappear, like the oyf post I had here. (It's really sad that some people go around life with a complex!) I'm another one of the few that has made an investment in MC several years ago. In fact, at the time, I could not afford it, and borrowed money from my mom, that she received when my dad passed away. (Social Security, I believe).

    Is there a way to stop getting notifications for this string? We are obviously being harassed by a disturbed troll. I don't know what his trouble is, nor what medication he has stopped taking, but I really would prefer to no longer have to be subjected to it.
  24. Unless NEThook has updated it does not support lathe or wire operations, like many things this would probably require c++ If you explain in great detail, what you are trying to do, I could write you a wrapper class for it, that you could use kn vb.net You could import operations thats about it..
  25. I meet some dificulties with the SearchManager.GetOperations Method. It seems that Method run only with milling operations. If i try to run it with a basic lathe machining file, with some turning operations and some drilling, the code below returns only the drillings operations. With a milling file, it's run properly, but impossible with a lathe file (i don't have try with a wire file, but it will be probably the same). I have try with some modifiers, (you can see in comments), but result is the same. What is the way in NetHook to load an array with really all operations, not depending machining technology? i need only access status (get) in the Msbox, and get or set only posting, displayToolpath. Its very easy to test, the code is only to paste in a standard Mastercam vb.net template, and i join the mastercam test lathe file too. Thanks in advance Mastercam version:2020 Code: Private Sub OnOkView(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles buttonOK.Click Dim Tl As Tool = Nothing 'Dim Optp As OperationType = Nothing 'Dim Operationss = SearchManager.GetOperations(-1, -1, True, Tl) 'Dim Operationss = SearchManager.GetOperations(True) Dim Operationss = SearchManager.GetOperations() For IndxBcl = 0 To Operationss.Count - 1 If Operationss(IndxBcl).Selected = True Then MsgBox("Opération ID:" & Operationss(IndxBcl).GetOperationID() & " Name:" & Operationss(IndxBcl).Name & " Tool:" & Operationss(IndxBcl).OperationTool.Number & " Posting:" & Operationss(IndxBcl).Posting & " Display:" & Operationss(IndxBcl).DisplayToolpath & " Dirty:" & Operationss(IndxBcl).Dirty) End If Next End Sub Julien-LMV2.mcam
  26. Here's another little tidbit I found on accident. I think it was 2018 when Section View came out. Hope this helps some one along the way.

    Lathe overlap feed rate

    I'm calling the Lathe gurus here, I want to know if someone find a way to increase overlapping feed rate in lathe's Roughing cycle with small passes at high RPM it doesn't makes a big difference but with .750 DOC at 25 RPM it's looooooooonnnnnnnnngggggg for now i turn overlapping off and make a semi-finish pass but the tool suffer in vertical walls TIA Martin
