    Size matters :-)

    First thing to try is deleting the workspace file. Close mastercam and go here It will be in my documents/my mcam 2018/config folder Then delete the workspace file Restart mastercam That might not be the exact path but point you in the right direction anyway

    Small file eating Ram

    not sure if this is the issue but i created a pmesh from the last stock model in operation 1 then i created a stock model from that in the 2nd machine group then it seemed to work not too slowly the other thing is that you dont have to have 2 machine groups for this especially if it is the same machine

    there is a spot calculator built into mastercam that will tell you how deep to go based on the diameter and angle of the tool aswell
