    Boom. I had the method set to coordinate with a 0 delta translate. Changing it to Toolplane did the trick. Thank you!

    SubPrograms

    I'm on MCAM 2019. I can't open your file anyway. So I wouldn't have known you were an idiot if you hadn't said anything. That is exactly how I want it to post out though.
  3. I'm working on converting my programs to subprograms for each tool. Our repeat orders vary in quantity so doing this makes it easier to add/remove vises and quickly change the program with two lines of code. When the program posts out, it creates a sub for each offset. I'd like to create one sub and reference that same sub for each offset instead.

    Tiny Slots

    What does that do? Either way, I'll have to slot through that at full WOC for the first pass through and that's where the vibration is.
  5. I'm milling a part out of 6061 and have to make a series of "fins" at .06" wide, almost 1" deep, and .24" apart. I tried running a .125" EM through it at .025" DOC, but the chatter was so bad it ended up snapping the endmill. Anyone have a work around for this, or a better method?
  6. Good morning, I'm working on a program that has a couple different multisurface toolpaths and a few opti rough toolpaths. Pretty much every time I make a change to one of them and regen the program crashes. I have my memory buffer set to 99% and delete regen files on exit checked. Would this be a memory issue?

    Hmmm. Good thought. Let me try that out. I got the Optirough toolpath to stop crashing, but there are a couple swarf toolpaths that decide to plunge through the part as it indexes. I'd imagine that may be why.

    For this specific toolpath I'm only indexing the A&B axis, so I left the the "no rotation" box checked.

    That makes sense. Thank you for the input. I'm very new to 5 axis programming so everything is a bit of a learning curve.

    Sike, The stock model shows those crashes. I'm not sure why the tool would rapid through the part though. I'm not understanding this.

    I gave up on making my own machine. I found a good video on Youtube to set up the machine, but in doing so found a way to use the generic 5 axis machine with my setup.

    I ran it through verify as well and the "crashes" are not there. What would that tell you?

    But that wouldn't fix the toolpath correct?

    I got it. I didn't set the machine def. I used to be able to do this in Mastercam for Solidworks, but it works differently in the native Mastercam application. I did set my machine up in the machine simulation. I'm not having a problem with the tool crashing into the part, but it's not being recognized as a crash for some reason. I can't figure out how to fix it.

    I have the parts selected as fixtures for simulation options, but I figured they had to be set in the machine definition in order to make them move in the simulation. Is that true?
