  1. Hello everyone, I was creating a simple lathe toolpath (finish a line) and when I went to prepare my stock setup, into Machine Group Properties, I couldn't see all parameters to fill, it means, I can't see all the window, as the picture below. I have already tried, for hours, change my screen resolution but didn't work. And the fonts are also BOLD, does anybody know how to fix it? Will help me a lot. PS.: I'm using Mastercam 2019 (I tried using Up1, Up2, and Up3). The error does not appear in Mastercam 2020 (Any TP or Beta) Thanks Kenny Machado
  2. Hi guys My name is Glen, I am new at emastercam and new to cnc lathe machines. i just have a question regarding tapping with live tooling( radial). I can back plot it and everything seems fine but when i post it machine error NO SPINDLE SPEED. This is the G codes for the drilling and tapping, i only have problem with tapping. thanks in advance

  6. Hello everyone, Can someone please help me with the attached part. I am still stupid (learning) LOL Anyways, I need to machine a groove wound around a shaft diameter. I would appreciate any help at all but if possible could you explain in a rudimentary way. I would not want misunderstand. How can I create a line at the bottom of the groove in order to generate my tool path Should I use a lathe button tool or a 1/16 ball end mill. Is there anything else I am not thinking about. Thank you so much. This site and you guys are fantastic I am so happy I found it and became a member. MachineGroove.mcam
  7. hey guys I'm a bachelor student in mechanical engineering and I'm doing my final project on a simple 2 axis lathe CNC available in my university and I'm using MasterCam 2018 for generating g codes so recently i was looking for a challenging shape or object to turn with CNC and I found this old YouTube video of someone making an asymmetric shape in 2 axis lathe and I can't figure out how he did it. there no explanation about the video so I'm asking you guys if anybody can help me figure this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_0PafcGSK8 thanks and sorry for bad english
  8. Mastercam X4 lathe has been giving me an error for the past few days that I cannot figure out. It keeps telling me that my tool is colliding with my stock—after the stock has been set up—but there is no clear indication of where the tool collides with the stock. Also, it only happens with one specific tool while doing a specific face. I've tried messing around with Tool Clearance option in Stock Setup as well as DOC, but nothing. I have attached three pictures that include the tool Mastercam is failing with, the parameters I am using and the error I get on the geometry I am running. There are other tools I can use to program with, but we have alwas used this tool and we're trying to verify all of our parts, except this cannot be done if every time we try to regenerate we get this error. Thank you for your time.
  9. I have a toolroom type CNC lathe with a Siemens 828d control on it. The control only has 8 active tool offsets possible. However, the tools are hand changed on an Aloris type toolpost, so I could have way more than 8 tools for a job. So the question is; how to change the number of active tool offsets? I'm sure this control is also used on lathes with larger tool turrets than only 8. Any info or links welcome
  10. Hello everyone, I am using 2018 and when I create a face groove tool I would like the add the tools back clearance. Is this possible in 2018 or is it something I will have to wait until 2019 for?

    Creat lathe custom tool

    Hello, everyone. In these days, I am learning how to creat a lathe custom tool. But when I get into the Geometry tab, I am confused about geometric tool orientation and tool orientation in turret. I want to know how I can select these two configurations. From the tuorial, these two configuratons are set in same position. I do not know whether I can always do that.

    Stock Flip Questions

    Good Day, I created a part for our lathe complete with a stock flip, after the fact I wanted to change the order of my setups. What is the best way to do this with minimal re-programming? I have my programs in operations groups as follows: Setup-1 Stock Flip Setup -2 I swapped Setup-1 with Setup-2 but the masks are still applied to the Setup-1 programs from the stock flip, I'm sure I could post and everything would be fine but the MC file is kind of messed up. My guess is that I need to delete the stock flip and re-create it put the geometry on a new level and re-select geometry. Anyone else have a better method? TIA, Greg

  23. So my shop has recently bought a Mazak Integrex, so with that we purchased a lathe seat. The post/ machine def/control def are lathe and not mill. The first part I programmed was all mill work, so i was needing the verify to display as a mill stock def and not a round lathe def. I was able to select a model (looks kinda like a boomerang) as the initial stock but when i pulled it up in verify to check for collisions it was not ,it displays my part as round and not what i actually need. What can i do, if anything? Thanks in advance

  25. the pic is from mastercan 2017 lathe finishing parameters using a nurbs spline as geometry. When using mastercam 2018, the Linear Tolerance field window is missing and the spline is interpolated roughly when machined. I solved this particular problem by simplifying the spline to an arc and reposting. But I need to have a better solution going forward. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Chris
