    multi surface will do it.

    The stand alone tool manager could be so much better. I have all my holders done along with quite a few assemblies... Its just a pain in the but to go back and forth. You would think we would be able to grab a holder that we already created in our library and throw a new tool in it assign all the proper fields and then save it back into the library without even opening the stand alone manager but no lol. I do make all my holders from .stp files. that is one other funny thing about the stand alone manager you can only import custom geometry from .dxf files. Its like the manager was an afterthought and it is less powerful than actually creating a tool in an instance of Mastercam. Its a time vampire

    Why is it not possible to create a tool assembly in Mastercam and back save it into a custom library. I will stay in the stand alone tool manager for an instance and then vanish.

    Dynamic OptiRough

    I have never had this happen to me on any control. Did it show in verify?

    gnomon settins

    pretty sure that's on your planes manager tab at the top it should have some options up at the top I know it took me some digging to figure it out

    Camplete help

    It had something to do with camplete updates not having a safe positioning move in them... the newest update seemed to fix everything and I'm back to where I was last week... It was just so odd. And tracking it down was even harder because I couldn't figure out why these extra crash moves were being put into my code or why... I had a friend at another shop post it in mastercam with his mastercam post and those moves just weren't there..... Kinda wishing we just got the mastercam upgrade for this machine... Or went to the dark side of hypermill.... However now it works again and life isn't so bad

    Camplete help

    I don't program off of center of rotation for any 4th axis or the new five axis machines... Call me crazy but it's much better in my opinion to have zero always set to part zero if possible. Makes moving parts to different machines with different centers of rotation much easier. It also allows my stock sizes to change a bit with no reprogramming by me, furthermore it allows me to put any proven out part or fixture on any available horizontal we have on any side of the tomb and I don't have to change anything. Probing routines and G10 methods of programming are awesome!!

    Camplete help

    Oh yeah I always forget about that!!!!! kind of annoying...… I just fixed it again yay! my IT guy must have done something with my software the other day because the latest update for camplete was not installed anymore. Thanks again guys for all the help

    Camplete help

    alright guys what Am I doing wrong here? the demons are back help.cs4 help.ZIP

    Lots of good enhancements

    I bet the multi threading goes even faster now!!! Who cares. I wish they would just spend some time and streamline the software... Also it would be cool if it would tell you why it can't generate the toolpath you're trying. I mean it's got a dynomite button but does anybody ever click on it? Why can't we delete original planes that don't get used? Does circle mill have an entry feed and speed yet that spools up at the bottom of the hole and hoes ham? How about first pass feed rate reduction support on surfacing. I don't care about viewsheets I have no need for them. How about a better printable format for tool lists and assemblies..... I could go on and on.

    Best method for closed circular pocket

    Like previously stated ramp that thing and Finnish with comp. If possible I like to get the biggest tool in there I can while leaving a little on the walls then Finnish it up either with a smaller tool that will overlap or the same size tool with comp. Hard to beat a good ramp with modern carbide I'm ramping in at 7 degrees minimum in aluminum.

    Arc Filter and tolerance input

    Some solid models come into mastercam worse than others.(I always seem to fight Catia and old auto desk stuff coming in dirty) I turn on my arc filter for all high speed paths and also Finnish contours... 50% usually seems to get the best of both worlds... Especially when you run into parts with arcs that start looking faceted when machined in actual material... I can snag you some pictures of surface Finnish results with and without arc filter on if you want to see what I'm talking about... 100 percent difference even in our okk horizontals with crazy AICC 2 lookahead

    Camplete help

    I think I went wrong in my plane construction I made planes to entity normal off of lines and points made In the hole axis feature of model prep because when drilling holes in a conical wall I didn't know how else to go about getting normal to it (any tips and tricks appreciated) I'll post some stuff up tomorrow of what I was getting....also I have been in contact with Ivan today from camplete. He's been incredibly helpful so far compared to the other people I was dealing with previously. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get a part out that's within .003 of nomanal on every feature... The grob is an awesome machine and camplete is a great tool o just have to fully unlock it.

    Billet roughing programs

    What kind of machine are you running in?hp wise ?Make sure you crank up your backfeedrates up as mentioned. And you can also pinch down the Micro lift to a thou or so. I also change all transitions to minimum distance not full vertical retract and I output that move to a feedrate of the max the machine can feed I agree Opti rough is better for end Mills but it can be deadly with face Mills too... I have been using one of the newer Mitsubishi adx shells with impressive results... It's a monster of a hog out tool
