    4 Axis?!?

    I'm not sure if a 4 axis license is necessary to make that (can't remember the limitations). But that's not using 4 axis simultaneous. And he's only using 3 axis toolpaths. What is the machine you're wanting to do this on? Does your program need to be complete or do you just need to make the part? Or can you just program one feature and hand edit in the 4th axis rotations then cut that feature again?

    4 Axis?!?

    Odd. Maybe he doesn't know 4 axis stuff? Or they aren't ready to teach it yet? But like Jeff.D said, that MPFAN post is a 4 axis post by default.

    Face Grooving

    what material? how deep is the groove? What machine? Look at Iscar face grooving tooling, or any other big name brands. They all have good stuff but in my opinion Iscar is king of grooving.

    2d Dynamic milling over engage

    +1 For 1st pass offset, I always set mine to .100" because our sawed stk varies

    X+ Mastercam 2019

    Mine isn't saving the files anywhere, I just looked in C:/Users/Public/Documents/X+/templates/setup sheets. Chrome even had another update today. 3rd one in about 2 weeks I believe. Oh well, I guess it's Firefox for the time being.

    Micro drills

    Out of curiousity, how long does it take you to set the length offset?

    4th axis feed output on Fanuc too slow

    Inverse Time is usually an option. but look in your control definition for this page:

    strange toolpath request

    If that's the top looking down,I can't think of anything that would achieve this zigzag with a single drive line.

    4th axis drill and tap macro

    Why not just use the Transform/Rotate option?

    Mastercam 2019 Bugs

    The only "fix" that I know of to elimiate the crashes is to shutdown and reboot Mastercam about once every 2-3 hours, there is a memory leak of sorts that hasn't been fixed.

    Why would they want to make things harder on themselves?
