  1. This ^. I have what I feel is a pretty solid system and this is infinitely frustrating.
  2. I understand camplete will probably be the best route. But that will be 3-4 weeks out. Meanwhile I would like to get a head and make sure on a few programs I dont need extra tooling ordered or extensions. Do you want me to send you an email with what I have currently?
  3. Hello all, We have recently placed our order for our shops first 5 axis machine, a Matsuura MX-520. We will have CAMplete for it later on, when we get training after the machine is installed in a few weeks. We did purchase a post from postability and have it installed and working. I have all the models of the mx-520 machine, and I am trying to build a machine sim my self for it. since I wanted to start playing with programs and checking clearance to get a head start. Currently I thought I was close with making a machine sim file on my own from watching some you tube videos and using that to get mine built. I have everything currently setup, with movements and limitations. But when ran, I get visual errors like on rotation the c axis table takes off. If I am reading the brochure right, the machine is A axis and C axis. I did a test nc file, and it outputs A and C axis movements. When I am running the machine simulation file the move list with in the machine simulator, it shows C and B? At this stage, was wondering if anyone had a mx-520 machine sim they would send over? But I am not sure if this is considered bad etiquette to ask on the forms? If it is, I would be confused why, I would think Mastercam and machine tool builders would want us programmers to have as much success as possible. If it is bad etiquette sorry for asking.

    Complete uninstall?

    Nm, was able to find a Microsoft download to check for failed install trouble shooter. This cleared it up.

    Complete uninstall?

    Got a new laptop for some write offs for the year. Had a failed install, and can not get it to uninstall so I can start over. I deleted the directory in program files, Deleted the 2 registry keys Deleted the user and public documents. Not sure what else I can do to start a fresh install. Any ideas?

    Dynamic optirough issues

    Do a phony .02 facing of the top of the stock. Let the stock model process that and see what happens.

    Tool database?

    I was afraid that would be the answer. I hate having to maintain multiple tool manager database's. Would love to switch machine and select tools and tool holders that are already defined.

    Tool database?

    Just curious how others are handling their tool data base ( tool manager )for multiple machines? Are you building a data base for each machine? I wish the tool manager had an option to select which machine I was working on and share the data base. So not have to rebuild tools that are already built? Or am I missing an easier way to share tools through machines?

    Mx330 problems

    I also have heard of the 20k spindles have been way better. We are feeling because they are air oil spindles they are lasting much longer.

    Mx330 problems

    I was very curious about this post do to my own problems with matsuura. I have gone through 4 spindles within 4 years on our hplus300. This is a 15k greased spindle. I have also had others message me and tell me they are also having spindles fail on them through Instagram. Since recently I made a post about matsuura spindles failing from light duty work. Last spindle I even changed nearly all my programs to run 10k max and still lost a spindle in a year.

    2021 crashes on fillet

    I have posted on the Mastercam forums about crashing. And I have been going back and fourth with Steven and Brian. They have logged into my computer and watched me crashed it regularly. They have scoured my system and are still stumped. Last I talked to Steven they have a hopeful idea they want to try out. But crashing is happening.
  13. Crash 4/29/2020 15:41:27 McUex: Mastercam raised a unhandled Exception
  14. Just crashed again, by accepting the geometry selected in Surfaces finish. If I had to guess, I feel it has to be something to do with the data base mastercam uses. How as a user can I fix this?
  15. I thought about that also, But I need excel for a lot of things. Hard to remove such a necesary program.
