  1. I'm at my wits end with mastercam. Was trying to set up my machine simulation to try and verify some can syces, and I kept getting this error even now when I open verify. and then after running my simulation and I close out the screen, the window turns black and mastercam crashes and I need to do a Ctrl-Alt-Delete just to close it. This happens almost 4 to 5 times a day. If any one out their can explain to me what's going on and how to fix it that would help out tremendously. My IT department has no clue about this issue and my reseller has not gotten back to me so I'm stuck with this crippling problem. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Hello, I am using an older version of mastercam X3 from 2007. I use an assortment of older machines so every post I've had to edit to make it work, however, I am having some trouble getting my edits to do what I want this time and after looking everywhere and spending several hours trial error all I have is error.. What I want to do is move some of the comments around. I want to remove the properties - " " from the operation manager from showing up before a tool change to save memory. I want to move it to the header area under "program number", "created on", and above "material". I have tried an assortment of ways but nothing works so far. How would I go about this? The reason I want it moved above is because I'm not always the one running the machine so we always check the program for which machine it's supposed to be used on so we don't crash. The issue is that I have to manually add this line in ever single time and it's a little tedious OR I completely forget... For the life of me I can't figure out what to do because any time i move the line comment$ and pcan it removes all the checked (from machine file check boxes) to my comment area but leaves them on consecutive tools ... If anyone can help that would be great.
  3. Hi, I'm having an issue with an old post processor for an AXYZ router with an A2MC controller. Ever since the post processor was created, we have added a tool to our library. The router has 3 heads and each head has its own M code for mister coolant On/Off. Head #2 & #3 have exclusive tools that we leave in there and head #1 is where we swap the rest of the tools. So basically we need the post to go "if Tool #4 is called, activate mister for head #3, if tool #2 is called, activate mister for head #2, etc. I looked up the post in notepad and I found the following: # Coolant M code selection sm09 : "M09" #Coolant Off sm08 : "M418" #Mister tool On # 1-5-6-7 sm08_1 : "M420" #Mister tool On # 2 sm08_2 : "M424" #Mister tool On # 4 sm09_1 : "M419" #Mister tool Off # 1-5-6-7 sm09_2 : "M421" #Mister tool Off # 2 sm09_3 : "M425" #Mister tool Off # 4 scoolant : "" #Target for string fstrsel sm09 coolant$ scoolant 7 -1 As you can see, each head has its own set of M code. Head #1 is M418/419, Head #2 is M420/421 and Head #3 is M424/425. We now have a tool #9 and I don't know how to add it to head #1's pool of available tools (it currently triggers on tool #1-5-6-7). How do I tell the post processor to trigger M418/419 on tool #9 as well? I looked everywhere and couldn't find anything. Thank you very much for your time
  4. Hello, My name is Calvin, this is my first time posting on this forum and I’d really appreciate any help I can get! Recently, the company I work for upgraded from mastercam 2019 to 2021 and we did get new posts. All of the programmers including myself have encountered several issues with how mastercam looks for the post. Mastercam seems to always look in the wrong location for the control definition and post files. I’ve watched several videos and still I can’t get it to work. Part of the issue may be that I have 2 workstations (desktop and laptop) and I need to be able to transition the same mastercam file between both locations and save at each location and different points in time. I really need help on where I should have my post and control definition located as well as how to get mastercam to forget previous locations for the post and control definition. With mastercam 2019 we used to have our post and control definition located in a shared drive folder and now 2021 is still looking for that same folder although now we have the files located as follows: C/ users/ public/ documents/shared mastercam 2021/ mill. I’m not sure how clear my questions are but any advise would be much appreciated. This issue is really bumming me out and I’m very lost on how to solve it. Thank you!!
  5. Hello, I need to know how to change the generic Haas post processor to output extended work offsets PAST G129 in a G154 P## format. I found the place where it normally stops posting after the 25th extended offset and changed it to 104 (which would be G154 P99) but unfortunately the HAAS does not read the offsets past G129. So, I need to know how to either change ALL extended offsets to the G154 P## format OR change offsets past G129 to the G154 P## format. Any help would be great, and of course this is urgent as I am cross country doing this setup.
  6. Hello. I am extremely new to Mastercam, so forgive me if I don't make a lot of sense. I am working on a lathe part that also requires multi-axis milling. I've been tackling it for quite some time now. It is very important to note that I am doing this for work and on a company laptop. Said laptop is also being used by other programmers, for other machines (I am trying to program this part for an OKUMA.) When I tried to post my G-code yesterday, I noticed that the feeds for the multi-axis milling portion of the job had drastically changed. I am talking a difference of about 100-150 (I am not quite sure where to see what the units are). I did not make any changes to the program, I even tried posting the code from a similar (almost identical) project that I know was using the correct feeds before. Same thing happened. My theory is that one of the other programmers made a change to the software that I am not aware of. The code, however, seems to be ok- seems to be generated for OKUMA. Any ideas?
  7. Hey yall, I am attempting to update a generic Haas VF- TR post to accommodate my UMC 750. I have all the rotary axis and directions set, but I am getting this weird rapid motion between operations when the rotary repositions, instead of retracting and doing one single rotation, it seems to be attempting to track the x,y,z moves with the rotation. See the attached NC code, I've deleted a lot of the fluff to make it easier to read. I am fairly green at post editing, where do I need to be looking in the post to fix this? Thank you!

  8. I tried generic Fanuc, MPRouter posts but keep getting error numbers that won't let the program run. Error20 Error24 Error33 Error9. The working sample runs, the other is mine and has errors as shown in the last program from Candle. I'm sure this has been a topic before. Thank you for the help. working sample gcode.nc EMASTERTEST.NC emastererrors.nc
  9. Good afternoon, I'm wondering if it would be possible to alter my 5 axis post to output "C" for the table on the trunion instead of "B"? I've been manually editing my posts to fix this issue but like most of my problems here I'm sure I'm just a few clicks away from saving myself all sorts of time.
  10. So, I think this is unusual, or maybe I'm a newb. This is the first time I've run into this problem which leads me to believe I accidentally changed something without knowing. I'm selecting several toolpaths to post for my program. Mastercam wants to post one of my toolpaths by itself, it wont post with the rest of the group. What did I mess up here? Thanks Nick
  11. Hello , I have a x minus machine and when i post a canned turning cycle the U value is a + number. I need U- on OD and U+ on ID cycles.
  12. Hi everyone, This is my first post here. My work has recently bought a twin ram VTL & we have been playing round with how best to generate the programs for it. I have been drawing everything in the bottom right quadrant & have been using the multi axis VTL machine type. I have been selecting left turret/right turret in the tool path parameter screen but I cannot get master cam to output two separate programs (one for each turret). Am I missing something basic as I am sure I had this working when I was playing round with it few weeks back. Any help will be appreciated Ryan
  13. Hey first time posting so if this isn't the correct place forgive me. I want my post to have custom code before every tool change. is there a way to make this happen I'm using 2018 with cimco

  18. I'm using 2018 and I'm having an issue with 2 of my seats behaving differently... One seat will never, ever show the correct "drill parameter text" in the operations. I am under the impression that this info is stored with the control definition? yes? no? text files have long since been abolished, right? Here's what happens; My seat of Mastercam works just fine, that is, when I make a drilling cycle, I see all the correct cycles and get all the correct parameters. I copy all 4 required files (Post.pst, post.psb, machine.mcam-mmd, machine.mcam-control) to the second seat, open a session, and BLAMO... all the drilling cycles are gone. Everything wiped out. What gives? What am I missing? Why can't I see the cycles on the second machine? J

  20. Hey friends, I looked around and didn't see a thread that addressed this problem, feel free to direct me if this is a duplicate. I am trying to clean up our lathe post processor and one of the annoying things it does is that sometimes, not always, it duplicates the last tool entry in my tool table. I can't find what controls this process or why some programs have the problem and some don't. My code for the tool table is: ptooltable # Write tool table, scans entire file, null tools are negative tnote = t$ toffnote = tloffno$ tlngnote = tlngno$ spaces$=0 if t$ >= zero, [ "(", *t$, " | ", plistcomm, ")" ] spaces$=sav_spc Which produces the following tool table in my program: (T1 | R .032 OD ROUGH RIGHT) (T2 | R .016 OD FINISH RIGHT) (T5 | OD THREAD RIGHT) (T12 | .118 PART OFF BLADE) (T12 | .118 PART OFF BLADE) Any suggestions on how to stop it from duplicating the last tool? Many Thanks!
  21. I hope I get this all right, this is my first post here. I would like to incorporate some of the Setup Sheet information into my part programs (project #, part #, rev., etc.). Is it possible to extract this info via variables in the post? I know I can prompt for inputs during the posting process (and have done this), but this has to be repeated each time I post the job. Any help is appreciated.
  22. Any help please. One of my customers has a few Milltronics Centurion 7 machining centres. Now that I have started posting dynamic tool paths with 2018, the machines are doing odd things but not always. Mastercam verify shows a perfect profile, cimco matches this with g-code backlit. But machine on occasion will cut straight into the part, breaking the tool. Checking on the machine graphics verify, this shows the error path. This means the custom can catch the error before any damage. Any ideas would be great, my thought was the look ahead setting. But just a guess.
  23. Hi all, i juste made a post that converts any grooves to thread. So you can make ,buttrest, acme, round or any form of thread with a grooving tool. Really easy to use. Contact me if you need it [email protected] Cheers
  24. I'm modifying the generic 4-axis mastercam post. Everything is working great, except when I post the rotational axis is is off by 90 degrees with the coordinate system I like using. Is there a way to change this? I know I can just change my coordinate system, however I was trying to avoid doing this. Thanks for the help.
