  1. Greetings all, Is there any information available on Change Parameter at Point in the drill geometry tab? The Mastercam help is vague and playing around with the depth parameter seems to do weird things. If you change the depth on a certain hole, it flips the tool 180 degrees on that hole. If you enter a negative number for the depth, regenerate you tool path and go back into the geometry and look at the parameters for that hole, its now a positive value that's different that what you originally typed in. Thanks, Doug
  2. That's interesting, because it works with solid chains in MC4SW thanks, Doug
  3. Greetings all, Is there any particular reason why Mastercam won't generate tabs when you pick a solid edge? I couldn't get a contour to generate tabs from a solid edge so, for giggles I created a curve on the edge and it generates the tabs... Thanks, Doug
  4. I found it finally! it was in the pcomment2 section...
  5. That didn't make a difference. It's still posting those lines out
  6. Greetings all, I want to remove the group and machine name from the top of my program, see below. I've been up and down the post and cannot find where the heck it posts it out. I'm using the mpmaster post for 2023. Thanks, Doug % O2041 (GG2041M10) (CUSTOMER NAME= ARCH) (PART NUMBER= 250449XX) (PART NAME= EDM FIXTURE) (PROGRAMMER= D PIERCE) (OPERATION NUMBER=) (DATE= 2/9/23) (JOB= 28348) (DMG-MORI CMX1100) <------------------- I want to remove this line (MACHINE GROUP-1) <------------------- and this line (T5 - 1/2 FLAT ENDMILL - H5 - D5 - D0.5000") (T17 - 3/8 SPOTDRILL - H17 - D17 - D0.3750") (T18 - NO. 7 DRILL - H18 - D18 - D0.2010") (T19 - 1/4-20 CUT TAP - H19 - D19 - D0.2500") (OVERALL MAX - Z.25) (OVERALL MIN - Z-1.4417) G00 G17 G20 G40 G49 G80 G90 G53 Z0.

  7. Ok, so... I restarted my computer and it's no longer posting outside arcs at 500ipm... If anyone has any info as to why, I'd still like to know so I can avoid it in the future Thanks, Doug
  8. Greetings All, I've never seen this before using arc feed override. A machinist was all freaked out because the program was going around outside corners at 500ipm. When I set the override, I set outside corners to 0% so outside arcs feed at the rate set on the tool page. If I disable the function, it posts it at the set feed rate. Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks, Doug
  9. I'll have to check it out, thank you
  10. They must have included to NX file with our purchase since the extension was available in the list of file extensions
  11. we did not. What I ended up doing is, once I started the process of opening the file I would hit ctrl+s. After about 3-4 minutes the save dialog pops up. I save it as a parasolid and force Mastercam closed wit the task manager. I restart the software and open the parasolid
  12. Greetings All, Is there a faster way to open NX files? It's taking forever. It's been 20 minutes now and its not a large file thanks, Doug
  13. I've downloaded all of the Professional Courseware. The Multiaxis doesn't seem to cover 3+2 and the 2D advanced covers indexing on a horizontal but, not 3+2. I downloaded the 2023 stuff, I'll go through and see if any of the previous versions go into the 3+2 stuff in detail
  14. That got rid of the error message in simulation. I think I have the transform\rotate sorted out too. My back plot looks as it should. Are there any good online tutorials to help me with 3+2 machining? Thanks, Doug
