    Dynamic Milling

    I used to be like you old timers and didn't like to use solids for toolpathing. Then one day I stopped yelling "get off my lawn!" and gave it a chance. I haven't looked back. Solid chaining makes your life so much easier, but I guess it's dependent on the type of work you're doing.
  2. HAH! It's because one of our customers was sending us some pretty big assemblies,the Quadro handles them much better. The top end gaming card is still really good for Mastercam though, for a lot of stuff.

    This process not available

    Yep, same here, it's habit for me to save after everything I do in Mastercam. Even if it's drawing a circle. I made it easy for myself and put this at the forefront of every tab on my ribbon: New,Save,Open,Print and Fit are on every tab. Makes my life 100x easier.
  4. Not 100% imperative, but you will definitely see the difference. I had a GTX1080 in my last system,swapped it for my current Quadro and noticed a difference immediately. My advice, get the Quadro. It's only $500 more.
  5. Backside deburr tool? Drill a little smaller and endmill the hole to size? Not much you're going to be able to do if you're just drilling.

    2021 crashes on fillet

    I thought that maintenance covered the full version and any update that goes with it? I've been wrong once before.

    2021 crashes on fillet

    Your first mistake is comparing software to a car. As for your maintenance, it's been stated that it will be in update 2, so relax tough guy.

    MPMaster and Dwell question

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just changed the output from a P to an X and all is good.
  9. Which one of these formats allows for a dwell output of NO decimal? G04 P0200 is what I want when I tell it to dwell for 0.2 seconds. Right now it's currently at fmt11

    Trimming issues...

    Yes I really like the Divive function and use it daily.

    Trimming issues...

    I haven't seen the full arcs thing, but Trimming 2 entities is definitely borked. They need to revert it back to how it was, I'm not a fan of the drag style trimming AT ALL.

    Deep hole drilling, Haas mill?

    Do you have 2021? The Advance Drill toolpath might do this.

    Pocketing 2021 Cutter Comp

    I've had that issue a few times. I can't pinpoint what causes it though. I use solid chaining exclusively, unless I need to draw extra wireframe stuff.
