  1. I updated the Script, works better. Has more functionality and more ways to safely exit.

This script will sort or un-sort parts into a grid so they can be cut on a fixture plate. The reason I made this is because we typically get .X_T files of several parts that are pretty much the same except for cavity numbers or stacking lugs. Sometimes we'll get a single file with each part on it's own level, other times we'll get each individual part in it's own .X_t file. I feel I don't contribute enough to this forum to make up for how much help I've received. Hopefully this script will help someone else out. Just copy and paste the code into a text file and save that file as "Fixture Plate Setup.vbs" then run within MasterCam.

    Are all your planes set to the same WCS?

    setup sheet options?

    HI Mick BTW, thanks for all your help on the Script! I've made a lot of changes since you last saw it, but learned a lot from what you had before I fiddled with it. I can't seem to figure out how to get the script to create a setup sheet according to each individual machine group. The tools get recorded from all the operations in the program, but it seems to be random as to which of the tools it decides to record. An example would be if I have two machine groups (each of which have a different NCI file name), but I have T1 as a 3/4" ST in the first machine group and T1 is a 1/2" SB in the second machine group. I'm never sure which one is going to be output to the setup sheet.

    setup sheet options?

    Unfortunately MasterCam only gives one set of information for each tool number for me to use in the VB Script. I end up deleting the machine group I don't want, creating my setup sheet and re-opening the MasterCam file without saving the modified one. The Active Reports setup sheet that some people in our shop use also seems to have the same problem. I personally don't like the Active Reports setup sheet since I can't modify the HTML file after it was created and the tool list is displayed out of order if the tools were used out of order in the program. If I accidentally have a tool length wrong I'd have to make the change to the tool and wait for all the segments to regenerate (when using dovetail cutters with Surface/finish/contour this can take a while). Then I have to re-create the setup sheet. I wish I had a better solution. In older versions of MasterCam, the VB Script pulled in the info from whatever Machine group was active, not sure why this went away.

    setup sheet options?

    So..... I've been obsessing over the VB setup sheet since I "took it over" from John to tweek problems and add functions. One of these "updates" is so that I don't have to re-type all the information for each setup sheet when I have multiple parts for the same job. Not sure how many people will use this but here it is. Please give some feedback if you use it.
