    2020 Turn Profile

    I tried to do a turn profile on 2020 and it didn't give me any geometry, does it work different to 2019?

    I downloaded 2020 last night and right away I noticed that simulation is a LOT smoother.

    Lathe Compensation for tools

    No compensation. When I said that "I make sure that the radius on MC matches the radius of the tool on the machine" I meant the radius of the physical tool, not the radius call out on the control. I don't use compensation on the program. On the lathe all you need to do is change the "WEAR" on X to change the diameter it cuts at, or the "WEAR" on Z to change the depth/length.

    Lathe Compensation for tools

    Lathe is very easy, don't make it complicated by messing with those. Only thing I try to make sure is that the radius of the tool in MC matches the radius of the tool on the machine.

    Helical entry.

    If I understand it correctly, you should be able to use a ramp contour.

    MC2019 Crashing when choosing machine

    Ill try that
  11. It happens every time. I open a file, I set planes and/or set the part up the way I want it on the screen, I save the file, and when I go choose a machine type it crashes. Any ideas?

    MC2019 operation numbers

    I noticed that when I move operations around they don't renumber anymore. I don't do it a lot which is probably the reason why I jusy barely noticed. Its not a big deal but it triggers my OCD. Is there a setting to make the numbers change?
  14. Try OptiRough and set it to "From Outside"
