    Are you looking for the Arc Filter/Tolerance page? It's right above planes. Usually this will shorten the code a bunch.

    Mastercam 2019 Bugs

    Thanks for the info guys. I am stuck at 32 gb of ram as that is all the mother board will allow. Perhaps when I update to 2020 I can talk the boss into a sweet new computer! I use Area Rest Roughing, Morph, Dynamic and Parallel quite often, so more Ram would be great.

    Check out Parameter 1404 bit #2 (F8A) in the manual. It should be on 1 to allow more than 999.99. That said, as with any parameter change, do so at your own risk.

    Mastercam 2019 Bugs

    Thanks for the input Colin. All these are really great ideas. I have a few questions: Is there a way to configure Mastercam "Tool Display" to always be off, or is this something I need to do each time I create a tool path? Do I Have to manually close the event logger each time I start Mastercam? Is it faster to set the hyper threading to only do one task at a time?

    I shut my computer off every night. I also reboot when it gets laggy or starts acting weird....The 80% Ram has really helped a lot. Even if I can't make it more stable than what it currently is (I agree with it being the most stable to date) maybe others can help themselves by upping the Ram used. 10 times this year isn't a lot, but I was curious if anyone has found anything else to help with the stability or if it is as good as it is going to get.

    It was more often but I went to System Configuration/Tool Paths and changed my Memory Buffering to 80%. It has really helped my system become more stable.

    Actually no, but I hear we may be related somewhere down the line? He isn't that far away from me in location either...It really is a small world....

    Mastercam 2019 Bugs

    I have a few bugs when using 2019 that I'm not sure if it is me or the software. First off, I get some crashes in thee middle of tool path regens. I know this could be a million things but was wondering if anyone else gets frequent crashes? I decided to keep track on my white board the number of times it crashes since January 1st. The current total is 10. Not a huge number but it seems to be about once per week. I save often but I do lose some production every now and again. I am running a Dell Precision T1700 with an Intel i7-4790 at 3.6 GHz. The system has a SSD and 32 Gb of Ram. Video card is a NVIDIA Quadro K2200 Wondering if there is anything that I can do to minimize the frequency of this happening? Can I tweak some settings to give me better stability? Another Bug I get is when Exporting Tool Paths. When I export Ops, I Export some ops with Geometry and some without. Lets say the first 10 Ops have geometry and the last 30 don't. I export the first 10 with the geometry and they export as expected. Then I un-check the box, and just select the remaining Ops. I export and for some reason it selects the first 10 operations and does those too. I end up with duplicates of the first 10 operations, but with no geometry. This makes it cumbersome when I import the operations to use at a later date. I was able to replicate this issue on our reseller's computer and stumped them as well. Does anyone know what causes this? How to Fix it?

    Custom drill cycle

    I have never thought about using 3d contour. That's a great idea! I have used Manual entry and typed the entry feeds/speeds and depths before and then copied it where needed. 3d Contour would be easier though in my opinion though. Just giving you another option with manual entry.

    Thanks! I was trying to do this yesterday and couldn't remember how to do it!

    MC2019 "Reporting Computation Error"

    I have gotten rid of this in the past by changing some of the depth cuts (or step ups) by .001 or turning off arc filters.

    Using Tool Path Editor

    Thanks! That helped a bunch. I'm on my way now!
