    Transform toolpath in random locations

    I requested that functionality years ago. Cimatron was able to do this back in the 90's. A couple of other software titles I've used have that ability as well. Not sure why MC is so limited when it comes to transform operations.

    Help with setting up new computer

    Double check inside of that directory and make sure that they are there. If you navigate to your "Documents" using the quick access menu or the Documents shortcut in your file explorer, it doesn't take you to the (as James posted above) the Public documents. If you already know this and have made sure then ignore.

    Upgrading to Mastercam 2020?

    LOL> I got 17 seconds on the start up and was about to start peacocking - and then this
  5. Make sure to back them up. I've had this happen quite a few times when working with several instances of MC open. I just restore the backed up configs and am off to the races.

    INVALID FEEDRATE : POSTS F0.

    Reading some of the things that you've done so far, I don't think that you would have any trouble figuring out the posts.

    INVALID FEEDRATE : POSTS F0.

    I've seen this happen when using Dynamic Milling with Entry Motion/Entry Feeds and speeds checked. It used to post the tools feed if the value was zero and then at some point it started posting F0 and S0. I don't know if that's still the case or if it's the issue you're having.

    Toolpath for machining a fillet without a form tool?

    Just for chits and giggles, I was wondering if you are able to add a 2nd boundary to keep the path from wrapping around the corners at the end of the profile and still get that nice consistent step over/down - If anyone is wondering, you can.

    Spiraling in/out to a contour

    Have you tried what nickbe10 suggested? There is a 2d high speed blend that may get you close to what you're after. You just have to play with the geometry and settings a little. You won't get cutter comp until the finish pass but you may not need it?

    SURFACE ROUGH POCKET CRASH WHEN SELECTING ALL SURFACES

    Not always. I've seen High Speed Area Rough produce some horribly inefficient tool path on some of the parts that we run. Even very simple parts. I've also had it insist on plunging in areas that it shouldn't need to. Some times surface rough pocket is just better. \rant off. example - I programmed this in a different system and reduced the cycle time by more than 5 minutes due to wasted inefficient cuts.

    split solid body

    I think that it was 're-added'? It was available in older versions of the software and then disappeared for a while I think.

    split solid body

    Can you just use <Solid Trim> by plane and use <split solid> Select a plane and poof?
  13. Here was the response. Note that it was 5 years ago.
  14. Someone requested this functionality on the official Mastercam Forum. I'm not sure if it has gained any traction. I think that it would be great for aluminum.

    Filling hole in a solid

    Just to add to this - You can use Modify feature with create body checked. It will fill the hole for you. If you put the newly created bodies (if you have more holes) on to another level, you can just blank the level when you're done with them.
