    Wire V6 posprocessor for AGIE CUT 100

    Does anyone check post dates? The OP posted this in 2000, and hasn't visited since. Your chances of a response from them are pretty remote.

    NCSimul vs Vericut

    I'm currently beta testing Vericut V9, and all I can say, is that the graphics are definitely improvement. As I type this I am currently running a hefty simulation, and the difference is plain to see.

    NCSimul vs Vericut

    So, it looks like your question has been answered There have been some major improvements in V9, and yes, it is looking good.
  4. It only started with my workstation when I installed 431.70. 391.74 worked fine for me.

    Machine simulation graphics

    It is... There are bunch of improvements to V9.0. I'm looking forward to that
  6. Hah, I upgraded my Quadro drivers the other day. Everything works fine, TopSolid, Vericut, Solidworks, Cimco. Opened up Mastercam for the first time in a while this morning, and what do you know.... Aero turns off.... Out of all the Applications...
  7. With you guiding them Doug, they will do well!

    Lots of good enhancements

    Those three things matter to the Autodesk hipsters who latch on to a buzzword, and use it as much as they sip their double shot espressos. The latest one I am hearing is "disruptive". LOL I'm not a fan of Mastercam nowadays (more political than functional, though the interface and some of functions are bleh), and we went off maintenance last year, so no 2020 for us.
  9. Heh, well, I get clean code to 2 - 5 axis and Mill-Turns, but yes, I agree with you. I spent a bunch of time with UG, and to be honest, I was underwhelmed with the post processing. The lack of users comment, yes, is a common response, and to a certain degree it is true. However, sometimes "I'll use that app because everyone else uses it" isn't the best reason. Anyway, I was just pointing out the "relatively new" thing. It is a common misconception. (Like "Mastercam is good at everything" )
  10. It's not relatively new, its just new to a lot of people in these here parts :)
  11. *Cough*, Mike is everywhere LOL I'm betting you're using a kinematic model that looks very similar to mine. I also have a beautifully dialled Vericut machine and control as well. We'll touch base on the dark side By the way, I have the utmost respect for some of the contributors in this thread, and Chris Kozell at CNC Software. I even had a couple of drinks with him when he was down here
  12. Eh? Are you Canadian? The issue I see, is that the Hasp is the old white parallel port Hasp. They have V6 installed, but it comes up with "SIM not found", which points to a driver, or lack thereof, issue. I'm going to have to visit them to take a look myself I think. A white paralle port Hasp is taking me right back, though I do remember the green Activator/M sim
  13. Thanks for the replies. These guys are somewhat stubborn with technology (that is an understatement ). I agree, V6 is going back a long way, (remember *.ge3 files? They were told (by someone, not sure who...) that V6 would run on Windows 7. My response was "I believe it wont". I'll break the news to them.
  14. Does anyone here have a Mastercam Version - Windows version compatibility list? I have had an enquiry from someone trying to run Mastercam V6 (not X6... but V6...ancient!) on Windows 7. I dont think this is possible, but I need to check.

    Mcam 2018 Mouse Wheel Issue

    Good to know that. Even though the only application that I would need to check that option would be Mastercam
