  1. I'm not arguing or complaining about their position. Clearly you've missed the point.
  2. I'm not talking about paid for posts.
  3. A few job changes ago, I mentioned here that I was running a new machine and wanted to customize a post. I asked what a good out of the box post to start with was for that particular machine. Three or four people emailed me their post. But if you come here to the forum and ask for a post, you'll get pointed to the forum rules rather quickly. I think you'd be amazed at what is shared behind closed doors among contributing members in good standing. Just sayin. If i had it, I'd give it to you.

    Happy 20 Year Anniversary

    I haven't heard of any crashes, just that it won't find all the arcs of the given size until you combine views. Or maybe I heard about them and forgot.

    Happy 20 Year Anniversary

    May 2002 for me. 18 years! Mask on arc wouldn't work until BernieT (where are you Bernie?!?) told me I had to Combine Views first. Thank you InHouse for all that you do! Thank you to everyone here who I learn from every day. You're the best!!!

    Old Ramsaver new Repair File.

    I never work on files even remotely close to that size, but it's good info to know. Thanks for sharing Ron.
  7. You can import toolpaths directly from another MC file. No need to export, then import.

    Making 2018 the default open application

    That's because it sucks.

    End Mill Question

    Would you really want to run a HSS end mill at 40,000 RPM?

    Standalone Tool Manager

    I guess you could take that a few different ways.

    Can't cut taper with waterline

    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.
  13. Yeah! See, there's all of these EXTRA things you can do to make it act like it used to.
  14. The MC Handbooks by Charles Davis are outstanding!
  15. Thanks! Very interesting indeed.
