    DRILLING HOLLOW SQUARE TUBE

    I haven't tried it, but you should be able to by using edit toolpath, after you've created it.

    Changing drill speed mid cycle

    I would think it would be difficult to find a 1/4" endmill 9" long!

    Metric Thread milling

    You can enter metric values and MC will automatically convert it to inch units for you. Just be careful that you enter the TPI correctly.

    Holey moley! I've been fighting this for a while and the fix was simple as could be once I had the full list of tags. Set the Datafield for Max Z to MAX-Z-TPLANE & for Min Z to MIN-Z-TPLANE. It works perfectly now. And I saved the entire tag list as a pdf for future reference. There is no need for the script at all.

  6. Thanks, I already had the tips & tricks document, but was unaware of the secret handshake having unlisted tags. I'm going to see what I can do with this. Zeke

    Spoke too soon. The report is generating now without errors, but the incorrect Min Z & Max Z output is unchanged.

  9. Well, I couldn't figure out how to do that without breaking it. So, I just created non-visable text boxes with the X & Y calls. It's working now

    I got it working!
  11. Ok, that got rid of the errors for the Z min max, but I'm still getting the X & Y errors. Can I just delete the sections of the script that reference them?

    That would be wonderful!

    I'm using a custom sheet that I made.
  14. I may be posting this in the wrong forum, but this seems to me to be the place where I would get the most knowledgeable response for this issue. I'm trying to incorporate the min max fix described here: https://kb.mastercam.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50303.aspx , into our setup sheet. I'm not a coder, so I just copied & pasted the script into our setup sheet(I'm pretty confident I have it in it's proper place), but I'm getting a bunch of errors saying that the following don't have definitions: txtMinX, txtMinY, txtMinZ, txtMaxX, txtMaxY & txtMaxZ. Can anyone tell me how I can define these?

    Geez, I'm an idiot. The script is included in the sample RPX file.
