  1. I have done exactly what Thad is saying with the ops libraries. But i got sick of going through the import process and searching for the correct toolpaths i needed to import even though i had them labeled good like Thad's examples. Once you get all the toolpaths for all the different scenarios it can get into the 500 - 1000 toolpaths if not more. So what i did was design and code a window that sits in the levels manager with buttons and drop-down menus to automatically import what i need. I also made it for different materials so i dont have to mess around with changing tools or speeds and feeds. I pick to material i want, pick the operations i need and BOOM its imported at the red arrow and i just pick geometry.....Done! I just click and in seconds what i need is imported. I also use same window for doing other common everyday tasks as you can see in the pictures. It took many hours of work and coding but i'm so glad i did it.

    Inconsistent edges in outline shaded mode 2020

    Well after a couple of days talking to Deb from qc at Mastercam through email the problem has been solved. After trying a few things, what we had to do is update the quadro p2000 driver to 431.02. I didn't even consider this since i just updated about a week ago but i searched for a new update and there it was freshly released. Thanks so much Deb for helping me out. The QC department got back to me very quick and gave me many viable suggestions and didn't give up when they failed to work. Eventually they found it with the driver. I have very clear crisp edges now and i'm loving it.

    copy toolpaths from a different file

    Never knew this....Nice. I was always exporting. I never knew you could import directly from a .mcam file

    Inconsistent edges in outline shaded mode 2020

    Seems like the straight edges are fine but the radius edges are not. I have tried different models and files and they all do the same. Why is 2019 good and 2020 not? So nobody is seeing this but me!?

    Inconsistent edges in outline shaded mode 2020

    That's one of the first things i tried and your right it didn't work. The closer i zoom up on the model the better it gets. Zoom out and it looks like crap.

    Any ideas for this?

    Inconsistent edges in outline shaded mode 2020

    Emastercam finally let me upload the images. This first image is 2020 and the second it 2019. As you can see the one for 2019 has edges in solid very clear and crisp. The one for 2020 is not.
  10. I've been on 2020 for a few days now and one thing that is annoying me is the inconsistent edges i am seeing in outline shaded mode. What i mean is the visual presentation of them. Some are thick, some are thin and some are just broken up. I am running Quadro p2000 gpu. I updated the drivers which i thought would fix it but it has not. I had no problems in 2019. Any ideas on what this could be? I tried uploading images of what this looks like but for some reason emastercam will not upload images.

    Benchmark 3.0

    3:53 Mcam 2020 4:35 Mcam 2019 An Improvement!! Nice... Im curious to see what you all are getting for verify times. Open up verify and check tool on and stock on and all other visibility options off. Uncheck all stop conditions. Set precision and speed sliders all the way up and run the verify. I got 4:57

    Crap....I messed up....

    Auto save With Backup is the way to go. Whats the problem with having autosave on "auto" when processing a large toolpath? I don't think i have had a problem. When its done processing then it saves

    This is how everyone learns to use the save a copy to directory. I lost a lot of time when i figured this out too. Since then the save a copy has saved me many times. Make sure you set it up.
