We use the setup sheet option in Mastercam and save to PDF so the guys on the floor at the machines can pull up the setup sheets on a computer. My request is; since Mastercam is already a CAD system why cant we do our screen captures as vectors instead of raster? If we could then we could zoom in on the screen capture and it would stay clear and PDF supports vectors. This is what is even being done across the web for websites because there's so many different screen sizes and resolutions. Vector is the way to go. I hope to see Masstercam do the same. Thank you.
At my old job we had a NC editor called "Edit NC", very original name there. Anyways, I was able to open up a posted program and back plot the tool path inside of this editor. This was very useful if the operator was telling me the program was doing something that I didn't see on my screen using our CAM software. Usually it was a post issue that caused the machine to do a weird machine move or something. Well I'm wondering if Code expert has that ability. I haven't seen anything in the menus that tell me there is a back plot option but maybe I'm just missing it. If Code expert doesn't have the option is there another route I could go other than having to purchase another Editing software?
