  1. I have a Raster to Vector problem, not sure if the background default to black is the problem, but my white image won't show/stay on the screen and no entities show in the screen statistics. I only see the image briefly when I scroll the mouse wheel. This is only on the manual vector selected.
  2. 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.
  3. Great, I will try it, it is .75 thick material. Thank you.
  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. I don’t see a place to save it in Configuration/ Default Machines
  7. 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.
  8. I just seen it, it is the three arrows on the top left to edit combinations. Thank you.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
