  1. The MC Handbooks by Charles Davis are outstanding!
  2. Thanks! Very interesting indeed.
  3. Would you possibly be able to create a version of this file that can be opened in MC2018 or lower?
  4. 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.
  5. @#Rekd™ and @5th Axis CGI, can you guys confirm this with a screen shot of analyze?
  6. 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?
  7. The holes come in as splines in MC X9.
  8. It's 2019. There's absolutely no excuse for them not sending you one in the first place.
  9. 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.
  10. It sounds like your reseller doesn't know what he's talking about.
  11. It's been over 10 years since I ran Fadals, so my memory is a bit fuzzy. We ran them in Format 1 as well. I recall the tool lengths in the offset page being the distance from the home position to Z0, so it was always a negative number, something like -8 to -12 inches, or so. It was never a positive value. When we picked up our zero, we used the SETX and SETY commands. We never SETZ. I also recall using G43.
  12. Welcome back, JP!
