    Any way to bend a Model in Mastercam?

    I appreciate the suggestions. The MAP dll is not the solution I was looking for. My part is way too complex. I need to bend the model as a whole with all features bending together. Thanks
  2. I am building an investment casting mold of a straight part. My customer has done many similar parts and knows that they always end up slightly curved, which then needs to be straightened. He wants me to build the mold with the part curved in the opposite direction. There are features of this part that would make it difficult to just make a new model. Is there any way in Mastercam to take a model and introduce a specific curve to it? Thanks
  3. Its doing it on all my files.
  4. That doesn't work for me. Thanks for the suggestion.
  5. I am moving Mastercam X9 to a new computer. What a pain it has been. I have most things back to normal. But now when I try and post just "one" operation in my toolpath list I get this error: “Partial NCI output file” It allows me to select yes or no. I have never gotten this before. How can I stop this prompt? Thanks
  6. I did exactly that and it seems to have fixed the problem. THANKS!
  7. I recently started using X9, was using X5. I am starting to get this error frequently "Error Reading From Surface Machining Temporary File" It has happen with Finish Parallel and Finish Flowline. I have to close Mastercam and restart to be able to create these toolpaths. Anybody know what is causing this? Thanks in advance.

    Toolpath Mirror - Cant do NCI?

    My origianal post was question about why I can't use NCI as the source in mirror. I thought maybe that there was a setting in the configuration that would allow me to use NCI. Now I realize that option was just removed for reasons that make no sense. I guess they figure that we the users are too stupid to understand the implications of mirroring just the NCI. Now what really aggrevates me is that I mirrored a toolpath and of course it automatically switches the source from NCI to Geometry. Then I get an error message saying that Mirror from the Geometry Source has failed and it will switch to NCI as the source. Of course it then works. BUT WHY DON'T I GET TO CHOOSE?

    Toolpath Mirror - Cant do NCI?

    I dont want to use the geometry option, I want to use the NCI option. It has it's benifits on certain toolpaths. You really didnt answere my question.
  10. I want to be able to Mirror a surfacing toolpath in X5. Why wont it allow me to mirror the NCI? I did this all the time in V9. This use to work great for surface finish parallel, when tool direction was not important. Now the option to mirror the NCI is greyed out. Whats the deal?
