    3D Connexion Buttons Not Working

    That would be handy. What are the shortcuts for that?

    3D Connexion Buttons Not Working

    I have two shortcuts on my desktop: Stop: "C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\3DxService.exe" -quiet -shutdown Start: "C:\Program Files\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\3DxWinCore64\3DxService.exe" If the driver is ever acting up, working on SW but not MC for example, I hit "stop", wait 30 seconds, and hit "start".

    3D Connexion Buttons Not Working

    Have you tried turning the 3DConnexion driver off and on again or restarting the computer?

    bent stock

    Drawing on center will get you close, but if you need exact you need to know the k-factor. Most materials will not stretch and compress equally on both sides of the centerline; many will stretch easier than they compress, so the bend line is off center.

    Where is circle center in 2020?

    North Carolina, weekend of April 4th.

    Peck tapping on Haas VF-4

    6 holes, I'd threadmill. Much safer than tapping.

    End Mill Question

    If you can't find HSS, try polished, uncoated carbide designed for aluminum. That's about as sharp as you can get in carbide.

    End Mill Question

    In foam, sure. Need that razor sharp edge. Kinda niche though.

    End Mill Question

    Does Harvey even do steel? I thought they were 100% carbide.

    NVME Drive

    How about for Stock Model? In X9 it seems to be single threaded; how many threads will it use in 2020? More if it's processing more ops into the model?

    Computer specs for running mastercam

    For the cost of a decent laptop you can have two desktops that work better, one for at work and one for at home. Choose your processor based on this benchmark: Get a decent Quadro if you can afford it, but in my experience unless you're working on huge models Mastercam works fine on GeForce gaming cards. A $300 GeForce card will be way better than a $300 Quadro if you're budget constrained.

    Is the dynamic milling data base dead?

    I use HSMAdvisor and the Helical Machining Advisor. Both give good numbers.

    Loud Haas ST20Y

    From what I hear, as far as lathes go, Haas makes a pretty good VMC.

    NVME Drive

    How many threads will 2020 use at once for a single dynamic operation or stock model?
