    Color pallet keyboard shortcut 2018

    Maybe a NETHook would be needed?
  2. Does anyone know the Mastercam 2018 keyboard shortcut to bring up the color pallet directly (see pic); bypassing the attribute panel? Reason; my mouse has programmable buttons. I like these programmed to change colors while drawing. X9 was the last version that had a keyboard shortcut I know of. Thank you
  3. Figured it out, backplot/verify options settings were loose. STL quality was set at .100 and work piece set at .03 Thank you Matt for your help
  4. Verify started displaying ball mills, bull mills, as sharp pointed tools with faceted surfaces; see attached pictures. The work piece suffers from faceting also. I did nothing to provoke this. I simply showed up to work last Thursday, went to verify a part, and got this. I have been dealing with it ever since then. Any Ideas on why this is happening?

    Where to find industry-related posters

    Comrades, I have been searching for machining and manufacturing industry-related wall posters to hang in our programming room. Believe or not, I have been have trouble doing so. I called HAAS, Mori Seki and Cimtech. Those company's said they would look into it; that has been weeks ago. I could make my own, but there is nothing like the industry posters we grew up with. Does anyone know where I can find some posters or wall decals? Thank you, John B

    to buy a Spacemouse pro or not to buy

    Cadcam, I hear what you're saying. It really comes down to what a guy is use to and what he wants. Like I said above, I had a space navigator for about a month, but sold it to a coworker. Oh, should I mention that he rarely uses it, which I feel validates my opinion about these Navigators. Also Cadcam, thank you for recognizing my girlfriends thoughtful loving actions. She smiled when I showed her your reply. I should mention that she is now my Fiancé. I proposed to her yesterday; Valentines Day.

    to buy a Spacemouse pro or not to buy

    Phodee6, I program in all dimensions and think those spacemice are no good gimmicks (I owned The SpaceNavigator 3D once). I am not looking to impress people, instead, I'm looking for accuracy and speed, employers love that. Here is what I use; Razer Naga (mouse) and Razor Tartarus (keypad). These tools allow me to have my most used Mastercam combination functions executed with just one button. I have all these functions programmed as macros; it makes me very quick and efficient. I use the scroll wheel to rotate and the mouse and keypad to fly through bunches of macro I have programmed that work exclusively with Mastercam. The picture below are of the mouse and keypad I use. Razor Tartarus and Razer Naga Below is my desk at work; it’s a stand up desk because I hate sitting all day. I have the exact setup at home too. Yes, those are love notes on my monitors and wall. My girlfriend puts them in my lunch box to make me smile, so I hang them up :-)

    Success! The swarf worked great and the code made it through Vericut just fine. Thank you both

    Need help with multi-axis curve tool control

    JParis, Looks like bad geometry was the issue here. I see and understand what you changed. I will let you know how it verified . I see that Manufacturing Specialist suggested using the New swarf toolpath. I'll try both. Thank you
  13. Thank you for reading, I'm struggling with this 5 axis curve tool axis control using HAAS Trunnion. The tool-path I'm using is Multi-axis Curve with tool axis control "Point". Using the point for tool control look okay, but the tool angles which makes a chamfered part edge. I also tried using lines parallel to the part edge for tool control, but the tool path was all over the place. I even tried using a drive surface near the parts center, but I failed to get and good results. The part matl is hydroformed 6061 at .063 thick. Could someone please see if you can get this to work and school me on what it is I'm not doing right. For all I know I could be using the wrong toolpath or this part cannot be multi-axis milled. The MCX-8 file is attached / backup link sheet_metal_curve_mcx8.zip -------------------------- The picture below shows the edge I want need to machine. -------------------------------- Extra view John
