    Active Reports Capture

    Here is an example of my problem. I took a screen capture of both the square and the circle. I want each on their own page. Look at the "Image List" page and they are both on the same one. SETUP SHEET TEST.pdf

    Active Reports Capture

    Ron I have been trying to modify the template. I have been doing pretty good on getting the "General Information" and "Tool" stuff the way I like. I don't know a lot about how it works but have been trying to teach myself. My goal is to have 1 full size capture per page. I can get somewhat there but fist capture may be towards bottom of the first page and the next capture towards the top of the next page etc.

    Active Reports Capture

    Hi All I am playing around with Active reports. Can someone help me out with getting my screen captures to show one per page. Right now it is fitting 2 per page. Thanks Mike

    Thanks for sharing!
  6. Are you just dragging your sliders to shrink everything? That will not stick. Make sure you click on the column and drag and drop it where you want.

    Toolpath suggetions

    MrFish Nice looking toolpath but I think that will give me my same NC length issues as the peel mill. And I have to try and keep my cycle time down. I need to make a 100 of these parts. Thanks for taking a look!!

    Toolpath suggetions

    I am probably leaning towards roughing with a 2d swept down the center of each fin then doing a finish contour.

    Toolpath suggetions

    I just ran a test peel mill path at the machine. 22000 rpm 115 ipm .010 step over. with a 3/32 EM The machine feedrate never made it above 30ipm. I think this is a robodrill thing. If it were much faster the machine would shake way to much for my liking anyway. It took approx. 7 min for 1 slot. and the code took up most of the machine memory. I attached the test file if someone can take a look and maybe give me an idea if I am doing something wrong. TEST.MCX-7

    Sorry the material is 6061 alum. I will probably go with peel mill just want to see if there are ways I'm not thinking of that may work as well, Thanks

    Toolpath suggetions

    Hi All I'm looking for suggestions for the best (fastest) way to mill these fins. The spacing is .130 x .646 deep. I will be running it on a Robodrill with 24K max RPM. I tried a peel mill path with a 7/64 EM but the code was way long. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks Mike TEST.MCX-7

    Crash when closing X7

    John...just tried it but it did not help. I deleted the config again then rebooted my pc and still no difference. When I close there is a short delay up in the lefthand corner of the screen next to SP2 it says not responding another short delay then crash.

    Crash when closing X7

    Sorry for the delay getting back. I have been running X7 for about 3 weeks now. This issue just started out of the blue this week. Yes I can just open Mastercam, do nothing go to close it and it crashes. This happens every time.
