  1. Machining Question Does anyone here have any experience machining AL-SIC/55P I cant find anything online on this material
  2. Buddy of mine did that while the machine was running a 5Axis tool path
  3. A few MC resellers have posted training videos on YouTube on programming a part from start to finish.
  4. +1 on the machine simulation
  5. Heidenhain on a mikron..... that's why they are called Smart Machine Will take it over a Fanuc any day. Code is very simplistic. Once you get the hang of it you probably will not want to go back to the Fanucs
  6. It is probably linked to another program in the registry or if it is a stp file embedded in a PDF, mastercam will not open it due to security. if it is in the registry your IT admin has to change it. i assume this is your work computer.
  7. I was under the impression that this sub forum was all about helping members but apparently some can't do that without any criticisms. To each his own. Thanks to the guys that helped.
  8. thanks JP. it was driving me insane.
  9. Has anyone seen this before and what does it mean?
  10. If you remembered your file name do a search and see where they ended up and then you can work backwards to recreate the saving issue. This is more a computer issue rather than a MasterCAM issue.
  11. just making sure i am not doing some thing wrong here. When I try to merge multiple cad files in MCAM2017, Verisurf deletes the original cad model. Is there a setting that I am missing.
  12. thanks it was driving me nuts having to go find it everytime
  13. i don't want to sound dumb,but how do i undock the plane manager and have it reside separately
  14. I use the holder definition page to create my holders based on actual holders and save them in my tool holder library. I transfer the same to use in VERICUT.
