    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.

    Surface High Speed (Area Roughing) not cutting to bottom

    Saltedfish see attached. The floor stock will act as a depth limit. Doc2.pdf

    Surface High Speed (Area Roughing) not cutting to bottom

    In the model stock section make sure floor stock is set to zero or whatever you want left. Try that.

    constantly have to reset hotkeys

    Yes I have the same issue! I like using the hot keys if I am only doing a couple of holes. Sometimes I'll keep hitting the c (for arc center) and it won't pick the center. Annoying to say the least. The whole selection process has taken a step backwards. You are not alone!

    Dynamic OptiRough

    I always use full vertical retract!

    Lots of good enhancements

    I have been using it since the late 80's. I have seen it grow and get better and I have seen it go backwards sometimes. I hate updating! it is a big PIA. I hate when they change things that are working like hole selection and than go backwards in 2019 & 2020. The trim function is annoying as well as the note in drafting. I think for most of us the newer toolpaths are fluff. Not all of them, but most. Just my 2 cents.

    Tool Manager - used tool icon

    It is still there in my tool manager.

    Header size

    Ok I give up. How do you make the header titles on the quick access toolbar bigger? They are too small! Much smaller than 2019. Thanks!

    Tapping Speeds and Feeds

    It is well worth buying good taps. We use Emuge.

    Ron, It may have, but dropbox is blocked here at work.

    Rich, I could get it to work in surface mode. I had to machine the inside of it. On the surfaces I created it had overlapping surfaces. Not clean. Rotate yours and look down inside. Doesn't seem like it should be that difficult a shape to model. I was going to try it in SW. Never to late! Thanks

    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
