    i have tried another file and it does the same. you have me wondering how many regen buttons you have. i have only 2. regen selected and regen dirty. both give the same message

    error message is how i typed it. i thought the quotes meant that. anyway , i tried clicking different op, since there are only 2 ops i have tried #1,#2 and both together and still get the same alarm. i was getting message to update to open cl 1.2. i.t. changed to new computer and now i get this message.

    can you hold castings

    the company i work for is in need of a machinist that can make jaws to hold aluminum castings. we have many dozens of castings to setup on our new fleet of ganesh mills. we are using chick workholding so many of the parts will be setup to cut 4 pcs per vise and 3 vises per machine. it looks pretty easy but they have to function perfectly. we will deal with you as an employee or a vendor. a good opportunity for someone who can make this happen. i am also making fixtures and this rush will last a few months at best. if interested please pm and i can show examples.

    wear button not working

    hi, is there some reason my wear button for contour does not highlight? sometimes it works but many times i cant use it because it is not lit up like the computer,control. i'm thinking it is from the parasolid files that i recieve from engineering. it is pretty consistant but occasionally it works. thanks
