    Thread mill...WHAT'S IT GOING TO TAKE!?!

    I just went back and did it 'again'. It worked fine. That or I still don't understand what you are trying to do.

    Thread mill...WHAT'S IT GOING TO TAKE!?!

    LOL. Good catch! It looks like it to me too! I was able to get what gcode suggested to work with circle mill as well. circlemill Threadmill

    Thread mill...WHAT'S IT GOING TO TAKE!?!

    Sorry, when I mentioned hitting the "c" button I was implying that you have to click the edge to get the center point of the arc. I should have been more clear. My bad. I created a test block when I was at work and created a b/s port looking feature. Did exactly as gcode suggested and was able to type in a diameter to be thread milled. I'm wondering if there is a little confusion/miscommunication going on?

    So using gcodes example above, can't you just hit the c to select the center of the arc and pick the bottom of the c-bore?

    Post error

    Looking at the error, and where it is erroring out, I can't help but think that it has something to do with the stock to leave - or the stock to leave message. This one is probably a better question for Colin. Looking at that error I doubt that is affecting the g-code being output. I like the legacy project better anyway.
  7. You should just be able to add them inside of your chain geometry. Chain manager - re-chain all - select points, select pocket chains. If Center on entry point is checked in the helix entry window, it should center over the points.

    2019 Machine Manage List

    Out of curiosity, are you migrating from an older version or are you installing 2019 fresh and only working with that? If you open your \Users\Public\Documents\shared Mcam2019\CNC_MACHINES folder, what machine definition and control definition files do you see in that folder? I don't think that the machine definitions and posts install automatically like they did pre 2017. You may have to contact your reseller and get the install file for them or they *might be on the install DVD. You may also be able to ask on the official mastercam forum.

    Adding optional stop to my post

    What was the issue?

    Adding optional stop to my post

    Is it posting an M01 at all? Look for this - #Cantext string definitions (spaces must be padded here) sm00 : "M00" sm01 : "M01" Make sure that sm01 has the "M01" between the quotes. Then look for - #region Tool change / stage tool ptlchg$ #Tool change see if you have this line and that it is not commented out if prog_stop = 1, pbld, n$, *sm01, e$ LOL. oops.. I meant "switch".

    Adding optional stop to my post

    I don't know which post you are using or where you want the M01 to output, but you may be able to turn it on with a flag. prog_stop : 1 #Program stop at toolchange: 0=None, 1=M01, 2 = M00

    Back to 2018

    I never used 2018 - this is 2019 so hopefully its in the same place if this is what you're looking for. Go to <wireframe> in the ribbon. In the arcs menu, look for <arc tangent> . There is a drop down menu. Arc one point.

    dynamic optirough setting cut depths

    You can still limit your depth using steep/shallow settings. Which version of MC are you using?

    Setup sheets

    I don't have excel. I use LibreOffice Calc for spread sheets. Draw opens a pdf like a diagram (think MS Visio) so you can do quite a bit with it. I have no reason to use excel or calc in this case.

    Setup sheets

    I use LibreOffice Draw to edit pdf setup sheets created with Active Reports.
