    Tab help

    My problem is, I have steps that need milled on both sides and on the top side I cut the profiles full depth and it puts the tabs at the base of the part, when I cut the steps on the bottom the tabs either get cut away, or they are monsters ha ha, I could go in and step them down I guess.

    Thank you for checking it.
  4. Hi all, I'm sure this has been beat to death before, is there a way to raise my tabs from the bottom of the part?. No matter how thick I make them, when I cut the bottom of the part they get cut away because my part has steps that get cut away.. I tried moving my profile geometry to the middle of the part but the tabs always cut at the same place. I'm using X5, thank you for the help on this.
  5. I did a curve slice on these parts to run the profile with tabs, but after milling the steps on the second side the tabs are gone. The stock is 4x7x.75 and the parts are .725. Any help would be great. Now that I think about it, maybe I can raise my profile chain since it’s in the middle.
  6. It worked, thank you again.
  7. Great, I will check that out and thank you again.
  8. I don’t see a place to save it in Configuration/ Default Machines
  9. Ok, I will try that, thank you again.
  10. Every time I open a new Mastercam, I have to create or modify in the edit combinations, it won't save for some reason even after I move it to top top of the list.
  11. I just seen it, it is the three arrows on the top left to edit combinations. Thank you.
  12. There are a lot of things in Mastercam to poke around in ha ha, do you mean in here?, not that this is the correct machine, but this location.
  13. I'm sure this has been brought up a few thousand times, but I just need to remove the A0 from the g-code so I don't need to edit it. Thank you for your help.

    is there any hope for this program?

    If you go to users public public documents shared mastercam version you are using CNC Machines any control file like default.mcam from there will open your Mastercam by double clicking. Then you can adjust any oops settings.
