    How come I can't get the green geometry to do a solid sweep? I can't get it to sweep around the corner. 10163641-sweep.mcam

    Get rid of planes

    They cling onto everything. I hate that. It should be like a tool path and ask before you delete it and then let you delete them. They should go away though when you get rid of all the things you listed. I wish I could help, but I feel your pain!

    Mill-Turn Machine Recommendation

    How about Soraluce? We are currently looking at them and the DMG/Mori. We need a mill/turn with a high capacity for weight and high accuracy. Thanks

    Machining holes at an angle on a vertical mill

    I used a contour. It didn't gouge. You can play with exit location. ANGLED_HOLES_(1).mcam

    Cutter comp issue

    Hi, I always use control for my cc. to avoid any questions by my operators. 99.9% of our geometry is closed this one happens to be open. The cutter starts its approach as if cc is off and angles to the correct position, but chops off a corner. Is there a setting that I am missing for an open contour? I found a work around and used perp instead of tangent, but I don't like it feeding inside a slot. Thanks! 52.25_LEAD_IN_QUESTION.mcam

    Setup Sheet is Taking too much time to open up

    I am experiencing too! I have been using set up sheets as long as 2019 has been installed. The last month something changed and it does take over a minute to open. Can't help you , but you aren't alone.

    Default Machine in Configuration not showing

    I had the same issue. Had to paste and copy every machine. Others here with the same set up no problems.

    Lathe Drill point selection

    Has anyone else experienced only being able to select 3 drill points in lathe? I was trying to select the four holes, but it only allows me to select three of them. Is this a bug or a setting? Any help would be appreciated! lathe drill.mcam

    2D Dynamic not cleaning floor

    Sometimes you can change your stepover a little like .01-.03 and it will clean it up. It could perhaps be a bug also.
