    Standalone Tool Manager

    I guess you could take that a few different ways.

    You mean Surface Contour toolpath, gcode?

    Fixture design. Not MC related

    Perhaps it could've been me not paying attention in the past, but I think you've recently (last few months?) become a more active member of the forum, both here and OT. I've been using MC since 2002 and that was WAY before we even had an OT forum at eMC...but I always read your posts at eMC with interest. I appreciate and enjoy your forum contributions. Different users have different workflows with MC. There's something that we can all learn from each other regardless of how much seat time we've had.
  4. Yeah! See, there's all of these EXTRA things you can do to make it act like it used to.
  5. The MC Handbooks by Charles Davis are outstanding!
  6. Thanks! Very interesting indeed.
  7. Would you possibly be able to create a version of this file that can be opened in MC2018 or lower?
  8. So it looks like the answer is that they don't come into MC as different types. They're splines. Thanks to all who participated in troubleshooting.
  9. @#Rekd™ and @5th Axis CGI, can you guys confirm this with a screen shot of analyze?
  10. Interesting. If they are splines, do you have an explanation for why different versions of MC bring them in as splines and others bring in arcs?
  11. The holes come in as splines in MC X9.
  12. It's 2019. There's absolutely no excuse for them not sending you one in the first place.
  13. Have the customer send you a solid. Done. Here are my tolerances for creating lines/arcs from splines. They haven't failed me in the 15 years I've been using them.
  14. It sounds like your reseller doesn't know what he's talking about.
