    Using a Boring Head on a CNC

    I put a note right in the post to check shift and have the boring head in the correct rotation. Takes the responsibility off of me!

    Changing drill speed mid cycle

    I would start with a short drill the same diameter at first at least 3x dia. Reference this thread from a couple of weeks ago. Pretty much like Chally72 said. Hope this helps!

    2021 beta version extremely slow

    Be very careful! I downloaded it and it wiped out my codemeter settings. It was insanely slow. My support reseller wiped their hands and blamed it on another software. It started right after I loaded it. Everything was fine until I loaded 2021. Took me 3 days to get all my software working. (ie Mastercam, Solidworks and Griffo Brothers.

    Mastercam 2021 Public Beta 1

    Are all the beta versions really slow when you change mmd's and posts? It's like a 3-4 minute period between mouse clicks.

    No more entity selection for drill in 2020?

    I agree! I think the selection has taken a step backwards. They can try and rationalize it all they want, to the every day user it has become tedious to select things. I love most of the new stuff, like tagging the arc with a diameter, but selecting is frustrating.

    Avoidance surfaces

    Certain toolpath types don't allow avoidance. Why is another question. If you go to your toolpath parameters and change toolpath types say from scallop to hybrid you will see the avoidance become available. You can always go back to the old school scallop!

    active level disappears

    Go to your tool manager and under toolpaths see if display only associative geometry is activated.
