    Creating grid?

    Thank you for all the great input, I ended creating a straight line adding points along that line and then transforming the points on that line as needed. the c-hook option looks like it would have done the job as well. Thanks again all

    2019 Lathe tool libraries

    I need advice, I am really getting frustrated or not getting the whole tool library thing for lathe. I have built and maintained libraries for or VMC, UMC, & HRZ machines with seemingly great ease, why does it seem to be so difficult in lathe!! Can anyone offer advise or the actual steps, or point me in the direction on any info to begin creating a library of inserts, holder, live tools (axial and radial) any and all help will be greatly appreciated

    Lathe tool manager?

    Is the Tool manager program (not inside mastercam) basically setup for mill tools only? When I open the stand alone tool manager program to create new or edit a tool database, I only see mill tools, holder, etc. nothing related to lathe tools.

    Creating static & live tool holders for lathe

    Great, I will do the same, since they are currently getting about 10k from us to build us 2 new machines for vericut, maybe they will comply...
  10. Anyone have experience creating or importing lathe tool holders into the tool manager for verification purposes? I am trying to create static and or axial & radial live tool holders, etc. for use in Vericut verification software. I have been able to do this successfully with all of our milling machines, but can seem to get the lathe holders.
  11. Colin - you seem to have a lot of knowledge on the subject of in-process on the machine inspection probing using mastercam. This is something our shop does using PC-DMIS currently and I am trying to get the probing programming of the CNC machines moved into the programming dept. instead of being done by the quality dept. I am interested in training and configuration of the software to get this done. What do you offer as far as training and configuration? Thank you, Tim
