    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

    mastercam.exe not availible under default programs list

    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.

    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.

    thanks JP. it was driving me insane.
  8. 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.

    tool holder definitions

    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.

    NASA wants IT approval

    Your MasterCAM reseller should have some one who handles Federal Accounts. A lot of government agencies uses MasterCAM. Your IT dept is just being Paranoid.

  18. windows start regedit.exe HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT Applications mastercam.exe shell open command c:\program files\mcamx\mcamx?\mastercam.exe change mcamx? to whatever version you want and it will show up in the default program menu so you can associate your step file to it.

    Verify - C-Axis cross drill

    It may be a software issue. I have had this issue since I started programming with V9. I learned to work around it by checking the codes in my program.

    Icons changing

    using X8 every once in a while our Icons keep changing and the only way to correct it is to uninstall and reinstall MCAM. See image attached. any help would be appreciated.
