    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?

    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?
  5. Here was the response. Note that it was 5 years ago.
  6. 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.

    Now using 2020

    That's interesting. I have a 27" main monitor and a 24" on the side. The issue that I'm talking about is happening on the main monitor. I'll have to try dragging the window back and forth just to see if it makes a difference.

    Now using 2020

    I've noticed this happening on a few windows. I've had a few project toolpath operations not allow me to scroll down far enough to pick the operation that I wanted to project. Yea, its frustrating. I've also had the operation that I wanted to project not even show up in the window until I restart Mastercam. If the operation in the window but not visible, I can usually get it down to that operation by using the down arrow key on the keyboard.

    DMG/MORI 3rd party service

    When Ellison was handling Mori out here in our neck of the woods the service was outstanding. Since they dropped Ellison and went direct they've been nothing but a PITA to work with. I've heard rumor that we'll never see another Mori in our shop because of it.

    Billet roughing programs

    If only they had zig zag in Area Rough. I've said that to myself more than once. I wish that the "keep tool down" controls worked better as well.

    Lots of good enhancements

    Can't agree with this more. It may be that I just haven't figured out how this is supposed to work yet, but every time I click on a point in that window and try to delete it, it never deletes the point I selected. It deletes the first point in the column. I've had a couple of "want to throw the monitor through a window" days just because of that.

    Plane Association MC 2020

    This must not work with solid selection? Center of circles etc? I've been fighting this since 2019 and it a bit of an annoyance.

    Rest Machining

    If you're just trying to get it to clean the corners, rather than using "all previous operations", set it to "roughing tool diameter" and set the diameter of the roughing tool a little over .5 to compensate for your "min toolpath radius" used in your dynamic path.
  15. If I'm not mistaken, the stock posts only output an M00 and a comment that says "TOOL INSPECTION POINT - POST CUSTOMIZATION REQUIRED" or something similar.
