  1. Not running vericut at all. I've only ran simulation on one machine - a Mazak V100. Simulation sales always talk about the cost of one spindle but I've also never killed a spindle. Having said that, I do see the value of simulation but I don't compare it to spindle cost. Back to the lathe - I rarely cross turrets and we do prove outs of main, sub, then full program. I have programmed Doosan TTs in a medical shop with the generic fanuc post. That was nerve racking but fortunately all of the parts balanced out very well and I never had to cross turrets. Most of those parts didn't even need live tooling.
  2. Nope, I even throw it in my pocket when I need to work at home. Edit: there is no license sharing. All 3 of our seats are the same except mine has lathe. I can see that for sure. I've always worked in places that only have 3 or so seats so I'm in a different position with licenses.
  3. I'm running Postability posts for Mazaks with upper, lower and sub. The only editing required is to suit my taste in output.

    Large block of wood

    I've done the exact same thing Ron is talking about except we used 2x4s cut in about 4 inch lengths. I put them every 4 feet or so.
  5. This is why I prefer a good old dongle. I love dongle. Dongle is best.
  6. I'm sitting on 3 bug #s for 2021. I had none in 2020.

    Did you put this on the official forum? You're kinda peeing into the wind here.
  9. Did you go with pparameter or pnci?

    edge errors

    Totally agree. I disagree. I think subscription services where you lose your work when no longer paying are a scam. I also look forward to the next release. I've been included in several development studies and some of my input has been implemented in the software. I guess it depends on how you view the world but I'm going to put my best effort into any tool at my disposal.

    I see this with Catia models all the time. I've grown to hate Catia and I don't even use it.

    This would probably get more traction on the official forum. I would like to be able to select geo by level myself. I think this is a good idea. Then you can move any needed geo to that level and have all associated toolpaths regen.

    lens mill aluminum

    I'm very interested in your feedback on how you're running these and how they perform. I've tried a few and in my experience they chatter really bad. The extensions/gage line I've needed they seemed to have too much tool pressure. They were faster but they also chattered where a ball mill did not. Any way, please report back.
  15. I've gotten pretty proficient at applying the morph path. If you can post up a sample I'd be glad to give it a go.
