I'm new to Mastercam 2017 (upgraded from X7), and I'm trying to create a lofted surface with multiple curves using the window option for my chains. The files are cranial scans that get saved as .iges files with curves consisting of lines that from a head (see image). In X7, I'd easily click lofted surface, select the window of all the curves, select a starting point and the surface was created instantly. In Mcam 2017, when I match the surface configuration settings as X7 it takes forever and creates thousands of surfaces that wrap from top to bottom. When I change the setting from NURBS to a curve generated surface, the single surface is created similar to X7. The problem is I need to re-save the file as an .iges and 2017 crashes every time when it's curve generated. When it creates the thousands of surfaces (NURBS setting) I can save as .iges no problem. My goal is to quickly create the SINGLE surface, and re-save just the surface as the new .iges file. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
wdg5555 posted a topic in Industrial ForumI'm trying to program a drill toolpath for a rotary that has 4 holes at 90 degrees. My problem is that for some reason I cannot select ALL of the four holes using entities option. After I select the four circles it only shows 3 holes being drilled. If I try to add the 4th one it doesnt work. I tried selecting the problem circle first and it will drill the hole. But when I try to select the other three it always wants to skip one. I've attached the file I'm working on. Any ideas? t.mcam
