  1. So not a Guru

    Tool library defaults read into High speed toolpath

    I fully agree. The subscription model is just a continuation of our slide into vampire capitalism. Adam Smith would not recognize, what we today, call capitalism and would probably be repulsed and offended to have it associated with the system he championed. Windows, since the release of Windows 10, is essentially doing this with it's operating system.
  2. While you can't record functions and operations in Mastercam, you can create operations and export them. You also have the option of including the geometry during export.

    Odd stock model behavior

    No worries, I don't need it for these particular parts. I just wondered if I was somehow doing some thing wrong.

    Odd stock model behavior

    We have a repeat project, that we had done several years ago. The files are MX7 & MX8, so I'm updating them to 2018. Most of them are no problem, but several of them fail miserably when I try to generate a Stock Compare stock model. The stock model generates fine, unless I enable Stock compare, doing so causes the model to shift oddly. I've attached a file, with 2 stock models, one standard & one identical except that stock compare is enabled. Anyone ever seen this before? 2878-2550-402-17_G.mcam

    HELP WITH G05.1

    I took a quick look at the mpmaster after Pete posted about his crash. I didn't see the logic to reset G43.4 on a null tool change, but I didn't have time today for a thorough look-see. I'm gonna take a better look this weekend, if I get a chance.

    You could try replacing this: if mr1$ = 2, #AI-NANO 2, AI(nano)CC output (Artificial Intelligence Contour Control) - G05.1 Q1 [ pbld, n$, *sg49, e$ #Must be in G49 and remain before G43 if ipr_type > 1, ipr_type = 0 #Must be in G94 pbld, n$, sgfeed, e$ # pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", [if mr2$, "R", no_spc$, *mr2$], e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", *mr2$, e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P mr1_flg = 2 ] With this: if mr1$ = 2, #AI-NANO 2, AI(nano)CC output (Artificial Intelligence Contour Control) - G05.1 Q1 [ pbld, n$, *sg49, e$ #Must be in G49 and remain before G43 if ipr_type > 1, ipr_type = 0 #Must be in G94 pbld, n$, sgfeed, e$ # pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", [if mr2$, "R", no_spc$, *mr2$], e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P # pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", *mr2$, e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P pbld, n$, "G332", *mr2$, e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", e$ mr1_flg = 2 ] The G332 line may need the "R", which would mean that line would be: pbld, n$, "G332", [if mr2$, "R", no_spc$, *mr2$], e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P Again, I can't stress enough, make a backup before making changes to you post.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    That wasn't the case here, the code output exactly what the display showed. I think it may have always been like this.

    That change is just for the phsm1_on section I don't know if it would be needed in your phsm2_on section or not.

    Backup your file, with a different name. Change this: if mr1$ = 2, #AI-NANO 2, AI(nano)CC output (Artificial Intelligence Contour Control) - G05.1 Q1 [ pbld, n$, *sg49, e$ #Must be in G49 and remain before G43 if ipr_type > 1, ipr_type = 0 #Must be in G94 pbld, n$, sgfeed, e$ pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", [if mr2$, "R", no_spc$, *mr2$], e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P mr1_flg = 2 ] To this: if mr1$ = 2, #AI-NANO 2, AI(nano)CC output (Artificial Intelligence Contour Control) - G05.1 Q1 [ pbld, n$, *sg49, e$ #Must be in G49 and remain before G43 if ipr_type > 1, ipr_type = 0 #Must be in G94 pbld, n$, sgfeed, e$ # pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", [if mr2$, "R", no_spc$, *mr2$], e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P pbld, n$, "G05.1", "Q1", *mr2$, e$ #Mr2 gives accel/decel value/coefficient, usually R or P mr1_flg = 2 ]

    Thanks Ron, I knew I made it work correctly before. I've slept at least twice since then, so my oldtimers wipes that memory away.

    Odd threadmill action in 2018

    This might just be how it works, but I seem to remember doing this in earlier versions differently. I have a threadmill with 1/8" of flute lenght and 7/8" of extended reach, and I'm threading .40" of depth. The path is broken into 3 separate vertical sections, instead of screwing all the way from bottom to top. Am I missing something in my settings? I've attached a pic showing what I'm getting on the left. Ignore the paths to the right, they're made by the full length threadmill that hasn't gotten to our facility yet
