  1. Still wish they wouldn't take some of the simple way of doing things away. I get the direction they are headed but..... It would be easy for them to just incorporate the stock setup from 2022 IMO .
  2. Why are we missing some of the old 2022 Features in stock set up? Before you could click all entities and then it would give you a quick part size and location relative to Origin. You could select corners. Super simple for quick referencing of parts. Sometimes I just want a nice simple wireframe for my stock, don't always need a solid model. Is there a way we can get back? I missing something or is this just another case of taking something easy away and replacing it with something more complicated? Jason
  3. I also have this problem. Mine is normally when I am importing a Creo file. Its very random and seems I wont have the problem if I turn off the new option for using B-Rep mapping for Creo files. Jason
  4. That would be nice. But I wont hold my breath on that one... Better yet how about X6 MU2??
  5. No problem. It just seems like something so simple should be there.
  6. Well if I want my part to verify correctly I believe I would have to use a straight wall cutter. I don’t see the option I am looking for under the taper cutters. Can you make the taper cutter straight then taper them back?
  7. Maybe I am missing something here. But when creating Flat end mills or even a Ball end mills, Why cant we have an option in there to create a draft angle? Almost every smaller end mill under .125” has some type of draft after the neck diameter. Would this not save a lot of time with this option instead of creating custom tools all the time?
  8. Sounds good. I think we get a pretty good discount from here. The company buys tons of computers from Dell. Thanks for all you help.
  9. I understand that,, But since my company only wants us to use our approved vendor. There is nothing I can do about it. I tryed to match the Solid Box one. My price for this is $2200. Genuine Windows® 7 Professional, No Media, 64-bit Quad Core Intel® Xeon® W3565 3.20GHz, 8M L3, 4.8GT/s 12GB, 1333MHz, DDR3 SDRAM, ECC (3 DIMMS) 2GB NVIDIA® Quadro® 4000, DUAL MON, 2DP & 1DVI 300GB SATA, 10K RPM Hard Drive with 16MB DataBurst Cache™
  10. Well I can select Quad Core Intel® Xeon® W3565 3.20GHz, 8M L3, 4.8GT/s as a option on the list. The document file I attached shows all the options on there. I can mix and match anything from there.
  11. I have attached the 3 different boxed I can choose from. Each one can be customized. If you wanted to open them up and see what is in there for options that would be awesome. Gcode, looks like I can get about the same box you’re talking about with 12gigs of memory T3500.doc T7500.doc T5500.doc
  12. Jeff, we dont have an option for the i7.. I was told this morning that by budget was to keep it under $5k. Gcode, That box you sent me, do you know what the Benchmark times are at on that one? I can get that same box as one of my options. So I am guess processor speed is the most important? Thanks
  13. SO is that a good thing? They are bugging me to make a decision right now.
  14. If I had a choice to choose a better chip I would, but this is what Medtronic wants to go with so I don’t have a choice. They pick computers mainly for PRO-E and they don’t really care about Mastercam. I could upgrade my Graphics card but if they are willing to buy me a new computer that is potentially better, I am going that route. I was just told by my manager to keep it under 5k and see if it gets approved... What is the most important thing for Mastercam? Should I go with something with less cores like this Quad Core Intel® Xeon® W3565 3.20GHz, 8M L3, 4.8GT/s or more cores like the one below. This is what I was thinking. Dual Six Core Intel® Xeon® Processor X5660, 2.8GHz,12M L3, 6.4GT/s, turbo 12GB, DDR3 RDIMM Memory, 1333MHz, ECC (6 DIMMS) 300GB, 3.0Gb/s, SAS, 3.5 inch, 15K RPM Hard Drive 2GB NVIDIA® Quadro® 4000, DUAL MON, 2DP & 1DVI
