  1. okay so--- should have added this, that while in drafting mode, hit smart intersection than hit the "i" key on the key board and select the first line, than hit the "I" key again and select the next intersection. It will find the intersection. i'm not sure why bother projection etc.?? Seems like a lot of extra work?
  2. So when you hit the "i" key (for intersection) before selecting entities it will find the intersection!

    Follow boundry with tip size not body dia?

    So I also tried, as suggested defining a taper mill instead of a chamf mill and it worked great! Thanks for that tip.

    Follow boundry with tip size not body dia?

    Thanks for the input nickbe10. I did play with the 2-d chamf option and got it to work out okay for me. I just thought that on the fly I might be able to do it without the "drop down" chamf. mode!

    Follow boundry with tip size not body dia?

    so I am familiar with the 2d chamfer from the drop down and use it often. I use it for chamfs on holes ect. I am wondering about just a pocket (flat bottom) that has side walls with chamfs. on an electrode. So the trode will need the over burn per/side. I guess I can play around with the 2-d chamf. drop down for that as well.? In any case it was just a question I have wondered about for awhile.!

    Follow boundry with tip size not body dia?

    So I wrote that post in kinda a rush! I am using just 2-d contour on a boundry pass, using 2021. I typically run into this when programing an electrode that requires overburn. So if the chamf mill is .01 tip dia. + 45 degs, and I am using .01 overburn it wants to follow the body size?
  7. I have always found that I am unable to profile a boundry with a chamf mill using the tip diameter? It always wants to use the "body" dia. Is there a way of doing this without creating new offset boundries?

    adding a label to notes?

    Thanks for that tip! i saw the option for leaders ect. but was missing the add button! Seems like an extra step but they added a ton of functionality to notes it looks like.

    adding a label to notes?

    So I just starting using 2021 and i'm not seeing how to get a label on a note? In 2019 the option was on the front page either choose note or label? Did a search also but not finding anything? Im probably looing right at it and not seeing it!

    Tool list question

    So just to clarify some, I’m not trying alter the posted file as Rstewart I think is having me go? And the active report that JP is speaking of is that in config. Reports? I see there several options but I’m not seeing any thing that has a tag “comments” that you refer to? Sorry for my confusion on this!

    Tool list question

    So my question is when I select tool list from operation manager it does not show the comments from my tool path? Is there a way to have it list my comments? I would also like it to list all my operation from the tool list. I am using version 2019. Thanks for any help!

    Creating letters question

    so I did try as you suggested Colin and it worked pretty good. Thanks for that suggestion !

    Creating letters question

    We are just using a stick font and making a pass on the centerline. I noticed that there is a arial true type font but its not usable for me. I would end up having to do a pocket pass, when a single pass on the centerline is all that's needed for us.

    Creating letters question

    This may be more curiosity than anything, and it may have been hashed over before and i'm not seeing it? Im using 2019 and when I hover my mouse over "create letters" in the wireframe area a window appears and says "create alphanumeric characters comprised of lines, arcs, and nurb splines". So when I create letters using generic stick font or box font it gives me only lines and no arcs? Im thinking there is a way to output as the "window" says, arcs? is there a setting I can change to achieve this?
