    Need Help With Mazak Integrex

    We're running an Integrex200-IV Matrix here (without lower turret but with sub spindle,y axis and 5 axis option on main spindle). I could help but issue is I'm off until 08/24 without a Mastercam seat... Control parameters and installed options can involve major differences in NC code output but feel free to post a NC program and i'll check if I find something weird.

    Dynamic open contour

    I guess you could already use several closed chains air regions but not opened edges like in this video.

    Dynamic open contour

    It comes from official Mastercam website here https://community.mastercam.com/techexchange#files (there are sample files too) you also can find videos on official Mastercam YouTube channel

    Could you post a screen capture of your toolpath and share solid in .stp file? (I can't open education files)

    Dynamic open contour

    This method has been enhanced with 2020 to be able to select several air regions. Here is a video

    Dynamic open contour

    Hi all, I just checked Ron's examples and i didn't know that trick with light offsets... but i didn't see obvious difference with classic chaining. In which case do you need to use it?

    Are you sure your chains were drawn at same Cplane? same Z depth? Post a file if you need help

    3d mouse

    I bought a spacepilot almost 10 years ago and I can't work without it anymore. I even mapped left,middle and right mouse buttons to give my right hand fingers some rest. Only issue I have is with Vericut 9 which is not compatible with this old model. I would need a brand new enterprise model but it's not cheap... and my Spacepilot still works like a charm with Mastercam and others software.

    Relating G2 and G3 with G1

    If it's a wireframe 2D contour you can transform your arcs into line segments. If you don't want any arc moves then I guess you can edit your control definition to break arcs.

    Accelerated Finishing Tools

    I know about Fraisa which make circle segment tools: https://www.fraisa.com/en/products/fraisa-arcut-x I also knew some from WNT (but now it's labeled Ceratizit so i'm not sure these tools still exist) https://www.wnt.com/ie/cutting-tools/news-cutting-tools/circular-segment-cutters-have-productivity-over-a-barrel-1659.html

    Probleme Chanfrein 3D

    Are you sure your issue is about Mastercam command not with your chamfer tool capabilities? I mean, even with a chamfer mill with a perfect theoretic 0 diameter (sharp edge) tool bit you won't be able to machine sharp angles like those on your screenshot just contouring (especially if you're machining in Top view) . If you could use a tilted plane it wouldn't that easier but you could try to follow angle edges (try engrave command to see what I mean).

    Probleme Chanfrein 3D

    Le truc à savoir c'est que ce forum est mis à disposition et maintenu par un revendeur alors ce sujet est sensible car il impacte directement leur business. Comme il a déjà été dit tu peux utiliser une version HLE, qui dispose de toutes les fonctions de la version industrielle et qui est seulement limitée par l'impossibilite de passer au post processeur. Pour ce qui est de trouver un forum Fr actif et réunissant autant d'utilisateurs expérimentés avec Mastercam ça n'existe pas malheureusement... Encore une fois, les gens ici t'aideront volontiers mais il ne faut pas tricher.

    Probleme Chanfrein 3D

    Et manifestement ces versions de Mastercam ne sont probablement pas légales, sinon pourquoi ne pas utiliser les versions localisées en français? If legit, I'm wondering why a french user works with a US release (and doesn't even try to write in English here)..

    Move in ARC

    I didn't try but it could work: If you have multiaxis you could try one drill toolpath per hole then multiaxis linking toolpath.
