    EMPTY FILE!!!!

    This is why you set up the backup utility to save your backup files somewhere else I changed my config file to send the backups to "C:\X20_Bak" I did this for because I once wiped out my mmcam folder and all my backup files "C:\X20_Bak" is also easier to find if your need to get an old backup file

    The file may have been renamed by your antivirus software when you downloaded it. Without the .exe extension, a malicious download cannot launch.

    Hitachi Seiki with 10M controller

    Does the machine have rigid tapping If it does, you need to use a solid tap holder If it does not, you need to use a floating holder and allow for some Z travel when the spindle reveres

    Haas blew up again

    I ran an old machine back in the day that liked to run for home right in the middle of G02/G03 moves Proven files, no rhyme or reason for it... the boss was convinced I was doing something to cause it. I was a heartbeat from getting fired when I figured it out. The machine was on the same circuit as the air compressor. If this old machine was making a G02/G03 cut and the air compressor came on the power spike sent the machine running for home smashing tools, parts, fixtures and anything else in the way. They had a electrician come out to work on the power box and the problem was solved.

    Benchmark 3.0

    I'm not sure which toolpaths support it, but some now use your video card's CPU's in addition to the normal computer CPU to crunch toolpaths, That assumes your video card and drivers support OpenCL (version 1.2 or better)

    Too much code for helix entry

    If you are doing this with the new 5axis circle mill tool paths, you will not get arcs if the axis of your toolpath is not along the X Y or Z axis

    Machine simulation graphics

    Vericut 9.0 is due out soon When I went to the VUE last spring they said the graphics in 9.0 is an order of magnitude better than the current graphics... I'm looking forward to trying that out

    Machine simulation graphics

    Simulation looks really bad while it's running, but if you let it sit once the simulation is over it cleans itself up and looks pretty good. That may take a while, depending in the size and complexity of your simulation and your video card. That doesn't help a bit if you are trying to visualize a cut as it happens though as it is usually too choppy to tell you anything.
