  1. Limit A +-180

    Not exactly but you gave me an idea that worked a treat, Thanks Alex I ended up putting similar logic in Toolplane positioning. pxyzcout0 #Toolplane Positioning xabs = vequ(x$) iout = vequ(i$) if cuttype = 2 & rot_on_x = two & vmc, c$ = -atan2(vtoolx$,vtoolz$) if rot_on_x = two, csav = -c$ else, csav = c$ while csav >= 180 #added from here [ csav = csav - 360 ] while csav < -180, [ csav = csav + 360 ] #to here
  2. Limit A +-180

    Thanks Ron I appreciate the input The A travel total in mach def is not used for any calculation in MPmaster as its just used as a error check msg, and used for unwind logic. I know re-ordering operations will give different results, but in real world application you have to have flexibility, Also if you don't have an A0 (top) operation between front/back post outputs to keep going in the same direction, +90 then +270, or -90 then -270.
  3. Any ideas where I should alter MPmaster so the post only output +/- 180 Degree on A axis. I've tried messing with some of the calculations as well as machine/control def setting with mixed results. tyia Ray CODEWORX A+-180.mcam

  5. Machine Sim vs true NC verification

    machsim not tied to the post is verify with machine models, has its uses but is limited
  6. Sending my list to santa (New PC)

    I wont hold my breath 😉
  7. Sending my list to santa (New PC)

    i know intel core speed is faster, was curious if the extra cores and cache would offset the clock difference resualting in a net gain. Could be faster for stock models and opti/modulworks paths but defiantly slower in legacy surface.... 2D who cares regen is negligible Ram/ssd/gpu will be top end for budget.
  8. Sending my list to santa (New PC)

    its not uncommon for my files to be 300+ mb and regenerating multiple operations. (lots tied to stock model's)
  9. Putting together a list for Santa for a new desktop. Has anyone tired AMD Ryzen for a processor? Specifically the 1900X 3.8Ghz with 40mb cache. Or should I steer clear and stick with i7-7700k/7740X From everything I know about Mastercam and everything I've read on PC spec thread we want Highest Single core speed with lots of Cache and the threadripper meets those criteria, just not sure I want to be the Ginny-pig
  10. Transform a Trasnform and add to WCS for each

    I believe you are right, I was hoping to save the extra work . Short term i'm going to hand edit the last 3 positions of each op. Long term Customer is adding a work probe so this problem goes away and I can use a sub with variable offset #. Thanks JP
  11. Transform a Trasnform and add to WCS for each

    I had coordinate set because the base position is center of fixture(sorry forgot to mention it in original post), so all the positions need different output and different offset. Otherwise I would just use a subprogram. Also when using Toolplane Rotate throws an error in MPMaster
  12. I'm either missing something or this is not possible. Sample is mill default but I'm using a MPmaster based post. I am trying to use Transform > Transform and make the output WCS for each position +1. G54.1 P11 to G54.1 P19 I'm able to get the first 5 positions but the last three don't increase (something is wrong in second transform). I know I could make geometry to replace first transform and transform that but my file already has 300+ operations as is and adding 4 operations for each path is not ideal. TIA Transform Transform offset NUmbers.mcam
  13. remove this -1 from groups

    I have mine set to prompt, name groups to meaningful names that make sense for part/paths. This way posted group comment may or may not be useful.
  14. I did some followup testing, You can only pull the "Tool Name", and "Manufacturers Tool Code" from the General Category ( Tested In X8 and 2017). Bummer, I guess I will have my client update his library to have MFG numbers in Description and Crib location in Tool MFG so we can post it
  15. Wondering if anyone has the prmcode$ handy for X8 Tool Description? My MPPARMATER post doesn't pick it up. I am setting up a Clients post to use a Crib location output from this field. TIA Ray
