    mind blown

    Thanks, faster for me in most cases just to use the stl's
  2. In the config there's a chord height setting, it can help, just be careful how much you turn it up... At least it's there in the full version but I would imaging it is in the HLE as well and be aware, on board graphics cards are not supported and under perform as well as most need hardware acceleration turned off ust to function

    mind blown

    and I have had too many times where the stock model has "holes" in it..... Which has caused issues... There are times stock models work just fine, VMC flat work....once you get in rotary and multi-axis work....most times you'll find you have to modify your gameplane...stl's still work and for the most part, that's what I use as well as the bulk of my work is HMC/Multi-axis or Mill/Turn
  4. What resolution is your screen set to? That's the only way to get better look is to run as high a resolution as your screen and card can handle

    What database? Mastercam doesn't have a database in that kind of sense... You can output reports, there are several methods from Active reports to .set sheets, X+ and several other ways as well
  7. I prefer to set mine up like so... ptap$ #Canned Tap Cycle pdrlcommonb pitch = 1 / n_tap_thds$ #added 7/2/07 ADDED Peck Tapping option -09/05/2018, result = newfs(17, feed) # Set for tapping Feedrate format pcan1, pbld, n$, *sgdrlref, *sgdrill, pxout, pyout, pfzout, pcout, [if peck1$ > 0, *peck1$], prdrlout, *pitch, !feed, strcantext, e$ # changed from *feed to *pitch, !feed 7/2/07 pcom_movea

    G55- G56 Posing out on 4 axis... why?

    I use it when transform parts in a strip on verticals mostly

    G55- G56 Posing out on 4 axis... why?

    Mastercam considers by default a new plane, a new work offset... Set them to what you want...if only G54 is desired set the work offset value to 0

    Adding a Peck Field to the Toolpath Tap Menu

    If the logic has not already been added to the post, it's a 100% post issue....the control def fields are just the method of inputting the data. If the post doesn't know what to do with said data, it will do absolutely nothing different

    Hello looking for help

    Nope, they, the HLE's time out purposely... It's 4 versions old, soon to be 5....Hopefully they're using a later version by this time
