  1. This is weird, After re picking the geometry the fourth time ,,, it worked right. circle mill simple 2d stuff and I have to work at it to randomly come up with a good tool path!!!! WHAT NEXT??? yesterday I went to a new level and created some cad, when I went back to work on the part, my latest plane had moved drastically and trashed my previous work ! BshT.mcam

    I noticed that point one is always red. it won't change when selected like the others do. My delete key works good.

    Can't agree with this more. It may be that I just haven't figured out how this is supposed to work yet, By the way there is one thing I like about the drill point manager, it keeps your work when u escape to close... one less click with the mouse is always appreciated! lately my left hand has been holding my head up more than working hotkeys.

    Who besides a wet behind the ears infant would design a toolpath hole selection window, where the list of points is a narrow vertical column running out the bottom of a short wide window that keeps retarding back to its default shape? WTF ? Every time I delete points it's aN ORDEAL!

    Still day to day usability is clumsy. They obviously care way too much about shiny new whistles and bells than they do about what it's like to use the software. or they would listen to us . The other day I modified a plane and MC threw out 6 view sheets for me. yesterday I changed the dia. of my spot drill, so MC tripled the spindle speed and doubled the feed rate for me! There are so many glitchy ways that the software works that it's impossible to predict what it will do next. Why does the toolpath manager jump around so much? Why does it scroll to a different spot if I even sneeze? I wish they would just work on what they have got and make it run smooth. they need to work on improvements rather that adding more stuff to impress non users into purchasing!

    convert config files

    But beware of losing post edits, toolpath defaults, possibly other defaults as well, and tool library fetching after the change!

    Feedrate over-ride for opti roughing! Please!

    WE keep asking them for the same option on Z finnish passes in 2d facing and contour... They don't seem to care what we want!

    RAM usage on stock models

    I keep hearing mention of this priority setting... so I looked for it again in task manager, this time I found the setting by right clicking on mastercam under processes page , and found priority listed I went ahead and set it to high, idk if that will make life better, but i hope so. thanks Corry.
