Mastercam SIM Number



Found 3 results

  1. I have made a new tool library with different tool numbers. But since we have many 1000 old programs, they all need to be renumbered. I wanted to write a script that queries me all the tools what new number they have. Since many operations have the cutting data adjusted separately I don't call "op.AssignMillToolBySlot(slot);" but set the number on the tool and still separately on the operation. The whole thing works, except for facing and slot milling. If I call there "op.Commit(false);" the geometry is discarded, also with true the same. Why? Or how does it work differently? Can I also change the tool number without recalculating the operation? That would be much better. Thanks for all ideas Use Mastercam 2023 The actual code is attached Renumberator.csx
  2. So I'm currently working on some molds with some pretty deep pockets - tall setups, long tooling. At the start of the program, the spindle always approaches at the height of the tool changer, regardless of my clearance/retract/etc. It also always retracts back to that height between tool changes. How can I change this so that the spindle retracts higher between tool paths? My sketchy solution is to add a contour that acts as an entry/exit around where it would crash, but I'd like to figure out what setting I have to change to properly solve this issue. Machine is a Haas UMC-750, if that helps.
  3. We recently upgraded to a new computer, moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and from Mastercam 2022 to Mastercam 2023. As a result, our configurations were reset to the default. I don't know if this is due to an update or just going back to the default settings, but I started to notice little orange dots and discovered the 'Arc Center Points' toggle in the display tab. Is there any way I can default this setting to be off when I open Mastercam? I can turn it off manually, but it's a little tedious having to do that every time. I tried looking at the 'Customize Ribbon' tab, but I'm not seeing an option for that - only an option to remove the setting from the ribbon (it's greyed out, but I'm assuming that's just because it's not a custom group? Either way, I don't want to remove it. I just want it to not be enabled by default). Any help would be appreciated UPDATE: The problem was what Aaron Eberhard suggested. I had multiple instances of Mastercam open, so when I closed it, the setting didn't save. Thanks to everyone who replied, your help was indeed appreciated
