  1. Thanks Colin!!! My old eyes have never noticed that. By the way, we are still wanting you to come in. We still haven't slowed down enough to have time for you to come in. I hope you and your family are enjoying the move, have a Happy Easter!!
  2. This is my settings. Maybe it got changed by accident. What setting would make it act like I described????
  3. Yesterday when trying to print my set up sheet Mastercam was showing the WRONG screen shot! (See attached). I closed MC twice, same thing each time. I had to do a restart on the computer!!!!!!!!!!! 1st picture is the part I was working on. 2nd picture is the part I was previously working on.............. Anyone else ever have this happen? I'm using MC 2019

    Face Grooving

    All this time I've been doing A LOT of face grooving, and NEVER noticed this box............. Thanks for the tip!!!
  5. Good guess!!!! Sorry, no prize awarded........... Thanks everyone for your help! Contour seems to work.
  6. It now starts at the top, but does some really wacky moves 1st!!!
  7. Currently regenerating......................LOL!!!!!!!!!
  8. master80, what causes it to rapid down to Z-.308 instead of starting at the top? I've never used the surface finish tool path on this type of feature.........
  9. I got help here on the forum 2-3 years ago on doing this. That part only had 1 hole at a 4 degree angle. This new part has 4 holes at 18 degree angle!!! The attached file has the imported tool path from the previous part. (still needs regenerated). If someone is willing to look at this and give suggestions on what tool paths they would use, (If not the surface finish flowline), I would be very grateful. ANGLED HOLES.mcam
  10. Josh, FANTASTIC!!! Your video was an EXCELLENT WAY OF SHOWING ME!!! THANKS!!!!
  11. Can this chamfer be made without surfacing on a 3 axis mill? All ideas appreciated. Or should I tell the customer it's not possible............. TEST.mcam

    ARRRGHHH!!! Customers

    Who else has a customer that is a real pain in the arse? Like changes the part after you already have it done! Gives you a print that's different from the solid model!! Makes revision changes, but doesn't list what they changed! AND THEY KEEP WANTING TO KNOW WHY THEIR PARTS ARN'T DONE.............. THIS IS ME RIGHT NOW!

    Custom drill cycle

    I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. I ended up just typing it out longhand, copy, paste, (see attached NC code), because of time constraints. When things slow down here I've reached out to Colin Gilchrist to come to our shop and do some post mod's, set up probing in Mastercam, etc. I hope he is still interested in doing this when that time comes. I only have 15 of these parts to run, and everything looks good! LONG HOLE DRILLING.NC

    Custom drill cycle

    I need to drill some long holes (.256" diameter by 4.11" deep ), in aluminum, using a thru coolant 15 X solid carbide thru coolant drill. The recommend feeds and speed are 300 SFM, .004 IPR. Here is my problem... It's been recommended that I use a chip break cycle (G73), and that a do a pilot hole 1st. How do I code this to feed down into the pilot hole at a slower RPM, ramp up the RPM's, etc............... This is on a Haas mill. I'm using the generic Haas post. Is there a switch in the post to use custom drill cycles, and would I have to "make up a custom drill cycle"???
