    rename it to a decimal point. so its small and kinda out of the way more than a paragraph description of the view

    reverse post

    down and dirty , copy and paste your code into this. its a quick visual. https://nraynaud.github.io/webgcode/ mastercam used to have a rpost (reverse post processor) dont know why they dropped it. I used to enjoy stealing xxxx from old proven code.

    Setup sheets

    should have added .SET and X+ to the choices. IMHO the setup sheets are as bad as the drafting part of MasterCam. Active reports are an overkill waste of paper. Set files are simple and take a lot of work to get just right. Would be nice to get a detailed setup sheet out of the box that nobody should have to modify. We use set files and output this. I can get 3 tools per page. With a detailed complete first page setup description. (simple but works) Definitely NOT a show piece by far. It has all the info but still looks like the crap from 1985. _______________________________________________________________________________ TOOL DESCRIPTION = 1/2 x 1/2 x 1 x 3 GARR ENDMILL TiALN 230MA CATALOGUE NO = VENDING MACHINE MSC #44758993 EDP #13317 INSERT GRADE = TOOL NO = 5 TOOL DIA = .5000 TOOL TIP ANGLE = 180.

    burring inside port intersections

    I didn't post one. just asked. but this is what i'm talking about. for port intersections. I remember seeing a video back in Feb, can't find it anymore.
  7. has anyone had luck with this? is there a video to show it working?

    Complex trim challenge

    something you can try. I just did it and it works. you have centerlines. create surface, draft, half your slot width, both sides. all centerlines change your color and use Silhouette Boundary. or surfaces to solids, boolean add all, add fillets change your color and use Silhouette Boundary.
  11. OK. Here is one I'm sure many of you do already. One of my guys asked "how do you do that?" today. PLUSES OF OVERLAP Thought everyone knew this one. hole DIA - tool DIA then multiply by Pi = circumference (length) of cutting-path. type all the math in the boxes (Boxes can math) This keeps a tool down inside a hole for as many revolutions (spring passes) as you want without coming off the part or retracting. here I'm cutting a Ø.765 with a Ø.500 EM, set your overlap to (Ø.765-Ø.500)*Pi = .8325 overlap 1 revolution (spring pass) OT I also use (Ø.765-Ø.500)/2 = that sets as my lead in at center. ( only cause i subtract the amount of stock allowed for multi passes or stock left. )

    Arc dimension

    I honestly couldn't think of a reason for having it (length of arc dimension). The Rad is already given, R*Pi works. or F4 the length and Note (length between point "A" and "B") maybe cutting tape? In our Autodesk 2019 its called (arc length).

    tru .. need to know the OUTS before you put the IN in.

    MasterCam won't load .ipt files

    At least AD Inventor doesn't rape you in to a licenced purchase agreement like (cough cough) pro E. oh xxxx.. too close to UMAss.. I mean "Force".
