    faceting on a surface

    .005 is very coarse tolerance. offset a chord on a 2" diameter by .005" and you have a .2 flat. Try a .0002 tolerance

  11. Watch this video, https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=572597186208043&theater Looks like it is a compressor screw. Can that be programmed in Mastercam or is it a special macro?

    X8 Drill Toolpath Backplot error

    Because of this issue you will also that the cycle times reported by classic backplot for drilling are much longer as it thinks that it is feeding from the clearance plane.

    Arc issue on Fanuc

    Thanks for that information Tim, that helps explain this mystery to customers and I will have to try those adjustments, when I get a chance.

    Arc issue on Fanuc

    I am at a customer right now that just got bit in the [email protected]#$%$ with this issue with a Fanuc 16i, I tried adjusting minimum arc length values and it did not make a difference. The culprit was the break arcs at 180 setting in the control definition. Since he is using IJ's, full arcs or > 180 are not a problem. The latest Cimco Edit does not show the problem, it just ignores that bad line, when I save as DXF it shows a gap.

    Arc issue on Fanuc

    I have seen this problem before on Fanucs and it always been when the customer has the arcs set to break on quadrants. Cimco Edit backplot will show the arcs correctly. You will notice that the arc segment is very short, so changing the minimum arc length to a larger value may also help.
