  1. Not sure if this helps but I import the solid with edge curves then highlight the wireframe and save it to a separate level.

    Garolite G10CE

    It actually doesn't cut too bad, thought it would be way worse. Seems that either wet or dry is chip/dust containment is almost impossible. It's either in the air (bad) or clogging the coolant screens. I only have 2 pieces to do so not the worst, just that they are 18 x 32 and 2 inches thick. Milling the width down from 21 to 18 and taking roughly .07 off the thickness.

    Garolite G10CE

    Thanks for the advice. I did a search and found some other info as well. All good stuff.
  4. Any advice for cutting Garolite G10CE. I'm assuming it's a type of phenolic. Cut it dry or with coolant. Will it chip when facing over existing holes.

    Changing colors

    Select entities. right click. wireframe color, more colors, select my color, crash. It doesn't happen all the time, sometimes twice a day, some days not at all. But I think always when I'm in the more colors box which I wish was the default.

    Changing colors

    Well I guess the problem with mastercam crashing when changing entity colors still persists in 2018.

    Try releasing the shift before you select the second point.

    you know what would be nice?

    Are you using the hide rapid retract moves button. A least those go away.

    Crash on color change

    Well at least I'm not the only one. I have played with 2018, just waiting for the official release to come out. Thanks

    Crash on color change

    Hi all I was wondering if anyone else is having an issue with 2017 occasionally crashing when changing colors of entities using the more colors palette, as soon as I hit more colors, my session shuts down. Is there anything I can do about it. Or just deal with it.
  11. Draw a diagonal line corner to corner on the bottom of your block and set the origin to the mid point of that line. Or you can use the temporary mid points when using x form move to origin command.

  13. I can't seem to figure out why my model hides itself when I import a group of operations. It disappears, then I have to unhide it, then clear features to un highlight it, any suggestions? MCAM 2017

    Wierd occurence

    The E with the vertical line is selecting the edge of the solid, while the arc filter selects the wire frame. Try turning off the solid to do your selecting.
