  1. We just updated to MasterCAM 2022, and now whenever I select a solid or a face it is difficult, sometimes impossible, to distinguish that I have actually selected anything. Two specific examples which I do very often. First, selection of a solid when setting up a Bounding Box. When asked to select which solid to bound, when I click on a solid there is no change in color to tell me that it was been selected. Second, selecting "Model Geometry" for a 3D operation such as Raster. When I'm selecting which faces for the operation to use, clicking on a face changes it from dark grey to "slightly less dark grey". It is *very* difficult to distinguish between what has been selected and what hasn't. I have looked under File-Configuration-Colors, but can't seem to find the choice that will change the colors for the issues I'm referring to above. Please advise.
  2. Hi does anyone know how to disable the WCS blue plane square that shows up in MCAM 2020? Also I run Mastercam at work with our HASP on a server, we have three seats. Every time we update to a new version, whichever configuration settings for WCS color gets saved first seems to be locked in. For instance I use a black background color with a green WCS, if someone saves a file with the default grey white gradient background with dark blue WCS first I am unable to change my WCS to green. It changes the background color to black but my WCS stays dark blue even though in my configuration colors it shows that I selected green...Please help this has been driving me nuts for a minute!

    Size matters :-)

    I'm trying to help a friend who is retired and using Mastercam 2019 to teach his grandsons CAD with huge 3D printer. The guy is amazing especially considering he has severe reading disabilities (with both letters & numbers). He worked for 30 years at the same shop doing precision CNC machining. For the last 10 years he had taught himself to use Mastercam. He bought a powerful server and 2 huge high resolution screens. All was well until he did something wrong (we don't know what yet but know that he must have fat fingered a hot key or some other bone headed move). The result is that his whole screen is the drawing window!! The file commands at the very top and all toolbars seem to be under the oversized drawing pallet or workspace. I think it is enlarged over the rest of the screen features because in my trying a couple of hotkey strokes (Alt+F, etc), some small toolbar type boxes appeared in the upper left corner with numbers and letters in them. What can I do to help him? Do I need to reload everything? Thank you all so much. Great grandpa.
  4. My coworkers and I are relatively new to Mastercam, so forgive me if this is a simple fix, but every time one of my coworkers goes to add a chain or change the parameters all the entities on his screen disappear, and the only way we have found to make them reappear is to go to the level manager and click the hide all button twice to make everything reappear. I am not sure if it is a setting, but we have tried replacing his configuration and workspace files to no avail the problem still persists. I would rather not have to reinstall Mastercam to fix the issue, so do any of you have any suggestions? I am stumped... Thanks,

    Fanuc 5-axis Machining Condition

    Hi, Do any of you have an idea or can point me to a resource to fill in the Fanuc 5-axis Machining Condition table. It is supposed to be developed by out Tool Builder, Yama Seikie has tried to configure our AWEA FCV-620 but failed in their many attempts at it. It has been nearly 9-months and the machine still jerks when changing direction and does not have a smooth motion at all. See attached for clarification. -Will
  6. I like to have a very dark blue background, so I'd like to make the WCS icon brighter. The WCS color in the configuration is not having any effect. What am I missing? Pls see screen grabs.
  7. Hello, This is my first time reaching out for support over these forums and I hope to continually learn/share moving forward on this forum. I've currently run into an issue, I've only been using mastercam for about a year now, and was thrown into it with little knowledge or training, I'm attempting to change my default operations library, but cannot get it to save - it's constantly reverting back to the default (C:\Users\Public\Documents\shared mcamx9\lathe\Ops) Literally I want to default that to (c:\programs\) I must not be seeing something somewhere. I cannot get it to stick, it's continually reverting, hoping someone can shed some light on it. Thanks. I've searched through the forums for this issue already but had no luck. (see attached photo)
  8. Hi all, I'm not familiar in conditioning rule of MDCMAX. I just want to ask how to create a condition for my cyclecount that it will increment by 1 if it read the cyclestop and partcomplete? I did this condition "MSG[CYCLESTOP] AND MSG[PARTCOMPLETE] " but it is not working. Thank you in advance
  9. Hi, I want to have exactly the same configuration settings for MasterCam X7 MU2 on two separate computers that I use. One is a desktop and one is a laptop. I want to have the same tool libraries, toolbar, operation defaults etc to be duplicated. Which files do I have to copy from the already configured PC to the other to do this. Has anyone done this with success?
  10. I haven't use Multiaxis toolpath for a awhile. Today, I try to do one toolpath but I found that the toolpath setting window got some problem!! The picture at right is been cut as my attachement. If only the picture is cut would be fine. But, in Collision Control tag, the icon at right side of the table is been cut also. (See the other attached picture) Then I can not define the checking surface! I tried to change my laptop resolution, icon size setting, connect to a external screen. Nothing help! Could any one help me to fix it? Is there a setting in Mastercam I should change? Thanks.
