  1. 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.
  2. I currently have all my vertical mill posts (Mazak, Haas, Fanuc) setup to post sequence numbers only at "operation comments" using the pcomment2 block pcomment2 #Output Comment from manual entry scomm$ = ucase (scomm$) if gcode$ = 1005, sopen_prn, scomm$, sclose_prn, e$ #Manual entry - as comment if gcode$ = 1006, scomm$, e$ #Manual entry - as code if gcode$ = 1007, sopen_prn, scomm$, sclose_prn #Manual entry - as comment with move NO e$ if gcode$ = 1026, scomm$ #Manual entry - as code with move NO e$ if gcode$ = 1008, n$, sopen_prn, no_spc$, scomm$, no_spc$, sclose_prn, e$ #Operation comment if gcode$ = 1051, sopen_prn, scomm$, sclose_prn, e$ #Machine name if gcode$ = 1052, sopen_prn, scomm$, sclose_prn, e$ #Group comment if gcode$ = 1053, sopen_prn, scomm$, sclose_prn, e$ #Group name if gcode$ = 1054, sopen_prn, scomm$, sclose_prn, e$ #File Descriptor this is the only place that sequence numbers are in my programs ex: N10 (SKIM FACE OF STOCK, +.002 FOR FLY CUTTER) T01 M06 (1.5 FACE MILL | H01) G00 G90 G56 X16.025 Y-2.1249 S3500 M03 Z2. T6 I always put comments on every single operation, this way the operators not only know whats going on in every section of the program, but can quickly search and start at the relevant section. however, i would like to create, if possible, a buffer which sends all of these comments with their sequence numbers to a .txt file that i can print out as a reference with the job setup paperwork. Is this going to be more complicated than its worth?
