  1. Hello everyone. Couple of times I have had this problem in MasterCAM and I can't figure out what is wrong. I created 3D tool, I'm sure that tool is made correct. When I run other part/different toolpath there is no problem. However in this case Mastercam shows me "Tool collision with stock! Continue writing toolpath?" but the thing is that there is only .01'' stock to cut, lead in and lead out is set with clerance. When I allow to write the toolpath and then verify the part, no problem. Verify doesn't show any collision. I tried to switch to 2D tool and everything was good. I'm not getting any information. Can somebody know what is wrong? I add that I had it in the past and I run the program on the machine and was fine. It just bothering me and I would like to know what it's happening. Thanks for help.
  2. Good day, I had a gouge at the machine from a rest roughing program that did not show up in Mastercam's Verify. Has anyone had this before? I ran a Surface Rough Pocket with a 3.0" high feed, then a Area Rest Rough with a 2.0" high feed then another Area Rest Rough with 1.25 high feed and that is the part of the program with the gouge. Mastercam showed a perfect part in Verify. The only thing I can think is that the way the machine interpreted the arc's is different then the my post settings? I am using a traditional bullnose tool to define my high feed tools and not the new high feed tool which would give me more accurate toolpath. Any ideas? I wish I had Vericut. Thanks, Greg
  3. Version 1.0.0

    This is en eBook. An internet connection is required to read it. Published by: In-House Solutions Inc. ISBN: 978-1-77146-795-7 The Mastercam 2019 Mill Advanced Training Tutorial contains projects and accompanying practice exercises that span a wide degree of complexity. It is strongly recommended to have a good understanding of 2D machining (provided in the Mill Essentials Training Tutorial, for example) before beginning this book. All of the parts are designed with machinability in mind and include suggested fixtures and tool setups. Clearly laid out objectives and dimensioned step previews make it easier than ever to follow along. The content covers 3D wireframe, surface geometry creation and solid creation, Surface Finish and Roughing toolpaths. An emphasis is put on the advanced Surface High Speed toolpaths, STL Stock creation and its use in solid model verification. Also covered is how to create and manage Stock models in the Toolpath Manager.

  4. I have a part that has a lot of wavy 3d work on the Top. I would like to set the part up at a slight angle in order to avoid engaging with only the tip of my ball mill. Is there a way to set set up '18 to compensate for the part sitting at say a 15 degree angle? Thanks in advance for any help

  6. Hi guys, I am needing to 3d mill a 6 degree angle on a 3 axis cnc milling machine. I have never done this before and have been told I am better doing it bottom of the anlge to the top. Not sute how to tackle it. Any advice would be grateful. I have attached an example of what the part is hope it helps.
  7. Hi everyone, I've imported a 3d .ipt into Mastercam and I'm trying to setup the toolpath to machine the part. However, I am not sure which toolpath I should use. I've tried doing a regular contour with a ball nose endmill and it didnt work. I'm pretty new to Mastercam and have only done a few Mastercam programs so far - I've watched many videos and done many tutorials but this is in 3d and I can't seem to get it right. Description of part: Its a rectangular part with a 45 degree slanted cutout on each side running through the centre of the part. I don't know how to achieve the slant for the cutout. Any help would be appreciated - thank you Joanna
  8. Hi, I am trying to machine a mold for a blade and having trouble with multiple errors such as: 1. A solid with at least one serious fault has been created, keep it anyway? 2. Operation can not be performed on sheet body solids Im trying to fill the cavity to be able to machine the surface, then in a separate set up machine the cavity. I've tried some different things but i am not sure how to do this or fix these errors. Attached is the file, thanks! Mold Half 1-OLD.mcx-8
  9. Subject should be " Surface Finish Blend stray toolpath x7" Hi, Surface Finish Blend is one of my favorite toolpaths. I feel I understand it well, but sometimes these stray wall climbing paths form. They don't actually touch the surface but are out in space. Takes me a lot of tweaking to get rid of them sometimes. I start with simple setting; .002 or .005 Total Tolerance/ .01 Step, Zig zag, Gap is 800 and No Arc Filtering on a 3/8 Ball milling .270 typ fillets. Anyone have an answer to this? Thank you
  10. Back again with another question I have this part with 3D circular surface, but after much trying and frustration, I cannot find a proper way to apply toolpaths. The toolpath keeps digging into the hole in the middle of the part. How would you do it? TEST.MCX-7
