    I Need To Build A New PC

    Yup.. I bought my Quadro RTX 4000 in Dec of 2019 for $780 at Amazon.com I priced it last week and it was $1250 We just bough a new Boxx for one of my guys and they charged $515 to upgrade form an RTX 2000 to a 4000 I have a Quadro 4000 in my work machine and the newer RTX4000 at home There is a noticeable difference between the 2.. the RTX runs Verify much better than the old Quadro 4000

    I Need To Build A New PC

    Benchmark 3.0 This is a good place to start The thread was started 3 years ago.. so I'd check out the most recent couple of pages first A few points.. If you don't NEED a laptop, get a desktop .. you'll get much more bang for your your money Speed is king.. buy the fasted processor you can afford (i7 or i9) don't waste your $$$ on a Xeon. 16g of ram is the bare minimum 32 is better Quadro video cards are your first choice GeForce gaming cards second Do not even think about Intel graphics get a solid state hard drive ..the money you may save is not worth the time you will sacrifice every day.

    Does Mcam do this? (Arc feed adjustment)

    Its very important to adjust your feed rate when doing thread milling Factory feeds and speeds are driving the c/l of the tool and that can be 2 or 300% too fast when you are threadmilling with a tool near the finished size
  7. Your dealer should be your first stop This website sells excellent posts https://www.emastercam.com/post-request/ as do these guys Postability

    Benchmark 3.0

    I have no hands on experience with a laptop/processor like this, but I believe you can configure it in different ways All cores with one common boost speed with which be lower than the 5.3 max speed or some cores running slower and some running flat out

    Benchmark 3.0

    This is a laptop... I believe the 5.3 figure is the max turbo boost speed

    MasterCam Community Mobile App

    I believe you'll need to set up an account, using a PC that has a sim attached to it. Once you have done that you can access Mastercam.com from any PC or the phone app
  13. If they are all 0's Misc Integers are probably not the issue
  14. Check your Misc Integer settings You can really get burned changing to a different flavor of post if they use different MIsc Int settings for different functions
