    2018 printing issues?

    ahaslam, your print page don't look like mine - I running Win7 you must be on Win10. Yea, I know how to move the part around and such in the "window" and the mouse wheel function. But I need "Actual Size" - that comes in the "Scaling" section where you set it to "1.0 : 1". I have X6 (and found X8 also), installed and that was maybe the last time I had to do this - well X6 works like it should. Enter - "1.0 : 1" in the scaling function box and that's what you get. 2018 not so much...

    2018 printing issues?

    Ok, I tried to search for an answer... Well, search function is let's just say "WHACKY"... I'm trying to print some part files I've drawn, and need to print them "TO SIZE" - yes, they will fit on a 8.5 x 11 sheet. I am using MC2018, and this is probably the first time in 2018 I have had to do this. Is the "scale" function broken or am I doing something wrong... It's been a while since I've done this? Everything seems to print "fit to paper" Help is always welcome!

    Are those Samsung 4K, 1440 or 1080P...? Costco has the 27 or 32" - 4K (oops... 1080P) for around $180... Just wondering.

    Machine Simulator

    Thanks! Does anyone have any better info (pdf's or so), on using or setting up MC's simulation? MC's stuff leaves a lot to be desired!!! Maybe Module works???

    Colin, can you explain this a little further... can the simulation read gcode or is it something else?

    Not exactly what you're talking about... but close! I worked at a bearing company that we bar fed 8~9 in dia - 1.75~2.9 wall - 12 foot bars into Okuma 4 axis lathes - late 80's, early 90' machines - LR and LC machines... Using "in house" made bar feeders. Fun started when you got a bent bar spun up to 1800 rpm... .0002

    Need help

    Look, too each their own... BUT that is just plain NUTS! If they are on that tight - use an air impact too loosen (not to install). Never have the spindle active when you are messing with the chuck... You're just asking for... ??? .0002

    Solidworks Z to Top?

    I am working on a customer project with Solidworks 2015, (their laptop and all), I have about 800 ~ 900 parts to draw up from some really old “print” prints. I have not used SW in 10+ yrs… so a lot has changed, but it is still SW. Question is: How do you re-orient SW drawing space so Z is up (top plane)? And make it permanent.. So the next time it loads it’s still correct. It’s like Y is currently the top plane (I know it’s always been like that). This drawing stuff sideways is NUTZ! If someone here knows please list it as simple as you can… Like I said it’s been like 10+ years since I used SW. Thanks
