    sorry about your luck on that. like I said 2019 seems useable., 2017 better yet... etc. we r looking at sw cam. now... to get away from the backslide. with my 20 years at MC. I don't have time to get that good at SW. so I am stuck too. Fumble on man.

    Anybody have experience cutting Carbon Fiber?

    I heard talk of "down cutting" reverse helical endmills for lamination issues. almost married one of those!

    Toolpath display not working!

    Downgrade your MasterC. to a release that works for you. I use 2019 2017 is better yet.
  7. u could modify an end mill into a woodruff shape to eliminate chatter. if u leave .1" or less of tooth at the end it should cut well.

    Absolutely! agree and when previous innovative conveniences are ignored and thrown out it becomes retarded . like if u want to change depth at point on an individual point of a drill set... it used to carry forward the actual setting in the field for u to modify. Now it comes up with a fat zero to help u out! same goes in many places. once the point was modified it used to grey the depth field to show that something was modified... now there is no evidence. I could run a fricking class on how things are worse now and how not to screw up a program ... I'd have material for a year easy. Fish in a barrel.

    I stopped updating at 2019. but I should have stopped at 2017 for the drill point manager. ( they ruined it in 2019 and the just left it blatantly stupid,, release after release...) the operations manager was ruined about 15 or 18 years ago with "X" each new version gets worse IMO. 20 years ago it was So GOOD! lately it looks like it was coded by children. Too bad no one checked their work.
