  1. My company has just installed Mastercam 2018 and is is working, I have downloaded and unzipped the X+ for 2018 app. However I get a X+ setup box saying: Mastercam directory not found\installation aborted. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hey guys i just started a company that just bought a new UMC 750. I and another programmer are using X9, but have no 5 axis experience. We have been able to run a few jobs using the WCS, but have recenly been given a job that needs full 5 axis machining, and we have no idea how to pull it off. We have heard about HAAS using dynamic work offsets, and have a post to support it, but which multi-axis toolpaths and setting up the job are proving to be a real challenge. Any advice or direction that can be offered would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot
  3. I get this output from my post: (CLEAN TOP) N9 G91 G30 Z0 M5 G91 G30 X0 Y0 T9 M6 (3.15 VALENITE SHELLMILL) (RAPID = Z.25) (MAX DEPTH = Z0.)

M9 G91 G30 Z0 M5 G91 G30 X0 Y0 M1 How do I get the tool comments to output at the end of the Sequence Number example: N9 (CLEAN TOP), N21(DRILL THRU), etc. Thanks alot
  4. Hey, EX-Programmer, that did it I have my comments back, thanks alot it was driving me crazy! Thanks again
  5. I,ve been doing some post editing, and at one time I had comments i entered in the Comment field i.e. Face Top in the tool definition dialog posting out. Now i have lost those comments. How do I get those comments back? Thanks
  6. OK, Thanks alot Ray D, I copied and pasted your snippet into my post, and the comments/code are coming out as desired. Thanks alot
  7. When I enter text in the Manual Entry dialog, as code the text posts enclosed in parenthesis. As code it should not have parenthesis around the text. How do I get rid of the parenthesis? Thanks
  8. What is a good resource to learn Mastercam X5(.MMD) Post programming/editing, or (.SET) in a tutorial format that does'nt require a classroom, or is not the Mastercam Reference Manuals. I have seen a neat setup sheet that was produced with a modified MILL.SET post. Thanks
