  1. The machine is brand new. What happened was it was in a tapping cycle while it ran out of travel. So it alarmed out and would not recover until I forced it out of the tapping recover feature in the digital relays in the controller. It was trying to recover the tap, but couldn't because the overtravel alarm wouldn't let it move.

    Dynamic mill random cut order

    That also seems to have no effect on the toolpath.... hmmmm Whats weird it the chain order dictates the cutting order with contour, but not dynamic mill. I wonder why.
  3. Hello all, I'm milling out these slots. I picked them in the order of the blue numbers. The machine cuts them in order of the red numbers. I have rearranged the chains in the manger several times but it seems like the correlation between chain order and cut order doesn't exist. How can I tell this toolpath to start with the left slot and move to right one slot at a time?

    New computer.

    I agree with Matt on looking for a processor with the best single threaded performance. They all pretty much have a bunch of cores now. I have an i7 9700k and it does fine. I would assume a Ryzen 7 3800X or Ryzen 9 3900X would do even better.
  5. Nvm I got it. Turned out to be a relay flipping ordeal.
  6. Hello all, I have a DNM5700. While I was tapping it ran out of Z travel, it alarmed out. But now I cant get It to move. I tore down my setup around it and removed the part. Nothing is in the way. I shut the machine down and restarted it, but it is still stuck in a z over travel alarm. If anyone has an idea of how to get this thing to move, it would be appreciated...

    Planes origin jumping around

    +1 for locking the planes. Once I get a plane where I want it I always lock it.
  8. I figured it out. When adding the 1st picture, select all pictures you intend uploading at once, then all will import into the list.
  9. Hello all, I'm trying to upload 2 pics to output on my setup sheet. The first one uploads just fine, but when I try to add a 2nd one it doesn't work. When I hit "Add", it opens up the file explorer like its supposed to, then I select my 2nd pic, but it never gets added to my list of images. Does mcam only allow 1 external picture?
  10. i'm also interested in your 3 drilling platforms..

    Solid model groups?

    Is there a way to create groups in the solid model widow? Like toolpath groups. Just so there's a way to condense the long list by minimizing a bunch at a time.
  13. It is blind. width and depth are +/- .005. Finish is 125 or less.
  14. Machining a slot in inconel 718. It's .050 wide X .315 long with full radius corners X .650 deep. I think this is a feature that should be EDM. What do you guys think? Possible to get a endmill <.050 to a depth of .650 in inconel 718...
