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.
When using VBScript, more precisely the 'StartDBSearch' function, I can easily find draft entities by isolating entites by looking for entities where GetEntityType = 64. I cannot find similar functionality using the new C# NetHook API. Is there a way more similar to the referenced VBScript to locate and select only drafting entities. Am I missing something simple? I attempted to circumvent the problem by firing an FT command using the ExternalAppsManager class to "QuickMaskAllDraftingAll" This works to select all drafting entities, but attempting to move them or work with them as normal geometry results in the following error message. Box Title - "Error: Typecaster::GeometryCaster" Box Text - "One or more of the geometry entities could not be added - Typecaster encountered an unknown geometry type I dont see (I could be missing it) any other entity types in the API, nor do I see any methods for dealing with drafting entities directly. Thank you again for your time.
