    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.

    If you go to CNC machines folder, you can open Mastercam from your machine file in there and it won't give you a crash report error.
  3. Thank you, Ron. I will try it. After I find it. MX6 was a little more user friendly than 18.
  4. I tried redrawing the arcs using 3 point arcs on my silhouette boundary, but no luck on smooth rads.
  5. Hi Chris, All of my radius cuts are choppy.

    How wide is your cutting tool?. I used a .25 thick slot cutter here with a ,5 wide and a.175 dia. shank.

    Currently working on the geometry from your model. It was choppy like it was 3d scanned from the real thing.

    I will help in a few hours after work. You should be able to chain around the inside wall completely if you wireframe it. Run it clockwise and chain arrow outside.

    Sure, make sure your lead in and out are big enough for clearance, and you start at the cutter depth and not the start of the cutter.

    I would use contour, here I just called it a slot mill and used multi passes and depth cuts with a big lead in and out.

    I don't see why it wouldn't work if you use a sharp corner cutter with no radius and multi passes. (Seems no rad on the model). We use torus cutters on our aluminum parts. Use direction to lead in and out.
  13. I had a guitar neck scanned, but my model is rough, so my cut pattern is rough around my radius cuts. Any help would be great. Step file attached. Thank you. emasternew.stp
