    Problems with Solid Models

    Did you bring in surfaces instead of a solid model?

    Transform Scale Metric Parts

    If that's easily repeatable it'd probably be best to contact [email protected] Attach the 'before' part and the steps you followed to do the scaling. Thanks!

    File growing very large

    We've made some progress with this file ... it appears that that groups are being created due to the presence of 3D HST selections and the way the saved data has been updated from one version of MC to another. More work continues to be done on it, but it looks like it should be under control for MC 2023. Thanks for sending the file in. And ... it looks like crazy^millman is seeing lots of unexpected planes because the STEP importer will import them ... typically any plane whose name begins with "STEP_" probably came in that way. Likewise for planes with names that begin with "CATIA_" or "NX_".

    File growing very large

    But we digress.... Anyway... it does look 'groups-related' but I don't see anyway to clean it out from within Mastercam ... I've gotten the attention of a couple of the developers here who know that area much better than I do, so we'll see.

    If and when you can send something that'd be great ... perhaps I can find something that Curtis missed...

    File growing very large

    motor-vater, You said "An empty file. I could share it if someone wants to see how messed up it is" a couple posts ago. If you want to email it to me ([email protected]) I'll take a look. If it's too big to email, I could send you a link where you could upload it for me

    File growing very large

    Did you look in the Groups Manager to see if lots and lots of groups exist? (that's been the cause of that sort of growth before). Delete them and re-save if that's the case.

    Stock model to pmesh

    Make sure that the Stock model operation has a little blue check on it. 1: Not checked: 2: checked:

    Codemeter vs Hasp

    There is no difference between a software license and a dongle in how Mastercam handles Maintenance Expiration.

    Enhancement Requests

    TBH, posting to eMastercam is not the best way to get Enhancement Requests reviewed ... only a few of us CNCer's lurk here. I don't know if the tool team comes here often. If you post it on the mastercam forum (forum.mastercam.com) ... or email [email protected] ... you're more likely to have it reviewed by someone at CNC who can possibly make those changes. Pete

    Refugee from Fusion 360 looking for advice

    The email was in my inbox this morning. I took a look and replied to your email. I think you uncovered an issue with automatically generating lathe profiles from solids containing 180 arcs on them. Pete

    Refugee from Fusion 360 looking for advice

    You can simply email a file to [email protected] Tell them that Pete asked for the file.

    RecceDG - I'd be happy to look at the file if you send it in to QC with a note that Pete requested the file.

    Looks like an upper vs lower turret issue, or a right vs left spindle issue..

    MASTERCAM FOR SOLIDWORKS COMPATIBILITY

    What he said... Yes - it should work fine. When MCforSW 2020 was released, SW 2020 had not yet been released, so SW2019 was the latest version at that time.
