    samsung machines

    They were making parts for Mori Seiki for years. Now they are making their own machines. Can't speak for their mills, but their cnc lathes are rock solid. Old school Mori quality. Definitely worth looking into. We have an SL-35. The dealer on the other hand in our area (Dynamic) are absolutely worthless. The support techs I swear they moonlight as cnc techs and their main day job is selling shoes.

  4. I've had this issue many times over many versions of Mastercam. Don't know the cause of it. Sometimes Verify is quick, sometimes it's extremely slow. It's like it's trying to load something before you can even hit the play button.

    2 inch NPT Thread milling

    That's pretty slick! I've always used the Vardex wizard, but this one is faster and easier.

    Lathe rough zigzag depth cuts

    post your file so we can look at it.

    Are you trying to open up files that were modeled outside of Mastercam? I know that sometimes we get files that were created in ProE and those took FOREVER to open. But I believe that was fixed for 2020.
  8. Do you actually need to do engraving? Or do you just need to machine some letters and numbers on a part?

    Nvidia quadro

    I have the P4000 and have seen this message also. I believe it was something from a Windows Update that is screwy. If Mastercam is working fine for ya just ignore it.
  10. If all of that other geometry isn't being used, you can turn on all levels, select all geometry and hit Delete. A window will pop up.. .select delete ONLY NON-ASSOCIATIVE ENTITIES. Then anything that isn't being used is gone.

    Looking for MasterCAM Skill testing.

    have them sit in front of your computer and hand them a blueprint, tell them "see ya in 30 minutes", come back and see how far they got.

    Finish turning Inconel 718 40-44Rc

    Our Sandvik rep just happened to be on his way over and solved the issue. Was it a perfect fix? No, but we just used a grade 1150? 1105? cnmg 200 sfpm .006 ipr. The deflection from the holes is now at the high limit of .0003" so we're calling it good. This material sucks balls.

    Finish turning Inconel 718 40-44Rc

    The holes are already in the part.
  14. We have a couple of parts where we have to finish an interrupted face in the lathe. We have carbide and CBN and the face has a tight tolerance on flatness, location and some other stupid callout. The interruptions keep chipping the cbn,and the carbide pushes off .001" when it hits the holes. Have tried cbn at 150-350 sfpm, and carbide at 50sfpm. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Parts are about 6" dia 1" long.
