    Me too! I like wire frame chaining.

    Undercut with a T-Slot Cutter Overcuts the Bottom Level

    Hope this helps. T-slot.mcam

    active level disappears

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

    Toolpath for machining a fillet without a form tool?

    Thanks JP! I like that tool path!

    Importing .JPEG

    It won't be perfect. Play with the settings. Better results with lines and arcs. I always had to create my own geometry and manipulate it.

    Choosing the correct toolpath??

    Yes MC looks at the shaft diameter and doesn't take into account that it shouldn't hit even if you have taken it into account.

    Question about custom tooling

    You can keep them in your main tool library or make a separate one just for them if you want. It's up to you. You can keep the geometry in it's own file and import it if you like. custom.pdf

    Choosing the correct toolpath??

    I changed your tool shaft. MC doesn't work undercuts good with the shank the way you had it. I couldn't get flowline to work. oper2 (1).mcam

    Work Offsets moving

    I have had this issue also. I started locking my planes because they would move too. I am back to 2019. 2020 is unstable too. It was crashing as I went to save the file.

    2020 Crashing on file save and file open from server

    I crashed 12-15 times yesterday with 2020 just hitting save. Working with multiple planes. I had files open in 2019 not one problem. I had lots of problems when working with planes . It would just move them and corrupt my tool paths. 2020 is very quirky. Same file today and no problems. I am heading back to 2019!

    Now using 2020

    My personal opinion of 2020 is it stinks. Too quirky. Blows up too much. MC laid a stinker!

    Surface HS Hybrid flats

    I kind of like the hybrid path. Without seeing the part it's kind of hard to the question. Sometimes you have to adjust the limiting angle.

    How can I improve finish

    I see a feed rate of 120 and .008 fpt. I would cut that back and bump up your rpm's. Just my 2 cents.
