    Tool Manager crashes in 2018

    Hi Radical1, The option to turn off the Hardware acceleration is now located in the Mastercam Launcher (found in the installation folder in the Mastercam folder from the Windows Start menu). Here is a screenshot: Hope this helps. Patrik

    Can't rename toolpath file

    We have several seats of Mastercam. X3 on all of them, but one computer will not allow the toolpath to be renamed, (Edit selected operations, Change nc file name). Clicking this does nothing on this one computer. Have tried re-installing, repairing and everything else I can think of. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks, Patrik

    I can't even see the box to make the changes.

    Can't rename toolpath file

    We will always try to write it local, because we have issues with the network as well.

    No, it's not 64 bit.

    Can't rename toolpath file

    No, it's Mill level 3. Mill only. The work around I have found so far, is edit selected operations, edit common parameters, then change nc file name from here.

    Dang, me neither. Thanks

    Mastercam Art

    Does anyone know how to re-define the containment boundaries in the Mastercam Art toolpaths? Once I select a boundary, I can't seem to re-select a different boundary or add to it and regenerate the toolpath. Thanks for the help, Patrik

    editnci

    Does editnci still exist in X2? I want to scale a toolpath. Transform toolpath doesn't have a scale option that I can see. Thanks, Patrik

    editnci

    Still would like to know if there is any way to scale a toolpath in X2. Sometimes, because of the complexity of the geometry, scaling it, re-selecting the geometry you need and then regenerating it can be a real hassle. If you can scale the toolpath itself, it takes care of all of these problems. So if anyone knows of a way to scale a toolpath in X2, I would love to know. Thanks, Patrik

    editnci

    Ok, so how do you scale a toolpath in x2?
  12. Patrik Warren

    editnci

    What I want is to scale toolpaths, not geometry. With the editnci chook, you had that ability. I can't find where to scale a toolpath in X2. Thanks, Patrik

    How do you get a .ge3 file into X?

    I can't bring in old .ge3 files into X. I get the error message that it is not a valid mastercam file. It appears that the chook, cvtold, has been removed from X. Any suggestions?

    Offset Contour - linearization tolerance

    Try the system tolerances in the configuration.

    fillets on polygons

    You should still be able to set your fillet preferences from the polygon command. It's a pain in the butt to have to not be able to change it here.

    fillets on polygons

    Anyone know how to make the fillet option in the polygon or rectangle mode change from full circles to small fillets? Everytime I use this it will create the full cirlces that I have to trim back to fillets.

    fillets on polygons

    hmmm.....I shut Mastercam down, then opened it up again and it works. Go figure?. Sorry guys, but thanks for the response anyway.

    fillets on polygons

    Create, polygon, use the fillet command in the expand box, and it gives me full circles without the option to small fillets.

    fillets on polygons

    They need to fix this.

    fillets on polygons

    No, when you create the polygon, you have the option of putting fillets on it. But, I can only get it to do full circles instead of fillets.

    Part Formation

    You can, but you have to make an .stl file from your part. Then in the verification parameters you can select that file to use as your stock.

    Locking up during post processing

    Memory is fine. I think it was caused by something it didn't like in the post. I think updating old posts is probably not the way to go. I should probably customize an X post for my machine.

    Locking up during post processing

    Anyone having problems with Mastercam locking up during the post processing? This is happening to me about every 3 jobs. Have X loaded on another machine and get similar results. On one job, when the depth cuts was turned off, it would post ok.

    Dragging issues

    I also preferred the way you locked it vertical or horizontal in version 9. When you lock these values in X, it doesn't snap vertical or horizontal until you click it. It was much more visual in version 9. (and easier).

    Dragging issues

    Can anyone use the drag function with 'copy', and not get extra entities when you try to exit the function? If you use 'move' I don't have a problem. When I use 'copy', after I position my objects, I get another group where ever my cursor happens to be when I exit.
