  1. So I was in the shop late last night programming this 4th axis part, and well this morning when I ran a simulation, all my tools became TINY. The holders are the same, but all my tools are very small causing errors, even though it's programmed with a 3/16 cutter. The regular backplot works fine. Why does Mastercam have to do this? Mastercam 2019.
  2. Does anyone have an explanation why it is that whenever i copy operations in the operation tree and paste them into a new folder or group that mastercam has to expand the other toolpath groups? like i paste my ops in "new group" and it makes operations expand in other operations im not even working on at the time,makes for a lot of clicking-oh and this is happening if the other groups are collapsed or not
  3. Please help. When milling circles we are not getting a perfectly round surface, it is more like 100 straight surfaces together to form a rad. Like a faceted round surface. Any suggestions to fix this? Thank you.
  4. Hi, Im new at the forum, Im having a problem with Mastercam 2017 in windows 10 the problem is that I've already installed twice mastercam 2017 and when I try to verify the machining (simulate) gives me this error " C-Hook not found... C:/ Program files/mcam2017/chooks/MachSim.DLL " Anybody with the same issue that can help? Thank you
  5. First post! Hello Folks! Amateur programmer here only using mastercam for about 3 years now. A lot of the older guys like to have me do all the research on issues with their software. Let me get straight to the point. We have about 8/9 PCs around the shop running mcam, and 5 of which are full time including myself. Recently with the install with 2018 being released I installed it on all of our machines. Some programmers are not so quick to jump into the new release as others. Myself, I jumped right in. I encountered an issue with printing from and through phone calls back and forth, sessions with our re seller we were unable to come up with a solution or reason for the issue. Basically it would only print the top maybe 10% of the page and cut off the rest. Long story short I just resulted to printing to a PDF and then printing from there. Short work around, but work around none the less. I was the only one having the issue until a second machine started having the same issue. After some use and a few weeks went by one of our machines had encountered an issue where we would open MCAM 2018 and nothing would happen. No splash screen, nothing. Yet after some investigation opening the task manager mastercam would still show up in processes but nothing would be open. After working with our reseller and going back and forth with them attempting to fix the issue for days they were unable to figure out the issue or why this was happening. The reseller even got CNC Software involved and they couldnt figure it out. Our short term solution was to choose a system restore point previous to the issue. It has since happened three other times. Once more with the same machine and twice on another. Now this time the system restore point has not worked. These are just happening at random times upon closing/opening or on restart. Wanted to post here to maybe see if anyone else is having similar issue or may have suggests of us. Much appreciated! Sam
