  1. Thank you sir, that did the trick!
  2. Greetings All, Doing some tutorials while I'm slow and one of the exercises is a 2D blend mill. It's giving me an error that says "inconsistent number of syncs" . I've tried rechaining a few times. My chains look like what's in the book. What should I be looking at? Our internet is down right now so, I can't share my file at the moment... TIA Doug
  3. The only thing I've found so far is they're bonded together with a resin. Another forum I 'm on, several people have said its not an issue to use coolant
  4. Greetings All. Anyone here versed in machining laminated shim stock? Can you run with coolant or will it compromise the adhesive? I would imagine that heat would affect it too. Thanks, Doug
  5. This has to be one of, if not he best forums I've ever been on. There are many smart, experienced people on here so willing to help. When I come here I know I'm standing in the shadows of gods...
  6. That's what I figured, I just needed a sanity check...
  7. Thanks, I try to remember this next time
  8. Will do, thanks. I was able to make it 3 surfaces instead of 5 at least...
  9. I was able to do the boolean operation but, when I go to use it for a 3d toolpath, it sees them as separate faces. We only have level 1 mill so, I'm only able to machine a sigle surface at a time. It's not the end of the world if I have to machine each face as it's own cycle. we don't do a lot of 3D stuff anyway. It's typically little blends like this Am I asking too much of the software at this point?
  10. that's awesome, thanks! How where you able to determine which geometry is giving you trouble?
  11. I'm getting an error when I try to boolean them to gether. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it doesn't like the geometry boolean.mcam
  12. I'll give it a whirl! Thank you Love this forum! There are a lot of very smart people here willing to share their knowledge. If I posted questions on a Camworks forum, it could be weeks before someone answered. If you even got a response at all. More often than not, I get answers here before my reseller gets back to me Thanks again, Doug
  13. NICE!, thank you! My reseller showed me the same thing but, only using 1 of the straight line. One thing I noticed is that this creates 2 separate surfaces. At the end of the day it's not a big deal but, is there a way to join them into 1 surface? That was the nice thing about using the net surface, it created a single surface Thanks, Doug
  14. Yes, I'm running 2023. We just changed from Camworks to Mastercam this past summer. My reseller got back to me on this. He had no answer as to why it chained one way but, not the other. He said a sweep surface would have been a better choice to generate the surface. The net surface worked but, I got an error message with regards to the "chamfered" edge exceeding 10°. In the end I got the surface I needed
