  1. Hello. I would like to rough this pocket by ramping all the way down, in multiple stepovers, with a high feed face mill. I cant figure out which feature to use, I am using Mastercam 2021 2D/3D. Thank you! Andreas F Validate
  2. Hi Guys, Needing some help Trying to do 3d contouring on a 3 axis machine. I have attached an example file in Mastercam x9 but not sure if it is right? Could someone please give feedback on it https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8NaxduLlxIQb1dsRXNOdlNfcE0/view?usp=sharing
  3. Hi guys, I am needing to 3d mill a 6 degree angle on a 3 axis cnc milling machine. I have never done this before and have been told I am better doing it bottom of the anlge to the top. Not sute how to tackle it. Any advice would be grateful. I have attached an example of what the part is hope it helps.
  4. I have an issue with cutter comp not activating on finish passes. Can someone verify? 1) Create a circle 2) Create a contour with wear comp and contour type = ramp 3) Use a depth in "Ramp Motion" 4) Check the box "Make pass at final depth" 5) Enter a 90 degree lead in and out. Do not use arc. 6) Turn on muti passes and use 1 rough pass. 7) For finishing use 2 passes with zero spacing 8) Check the "Final Depth" radio button 9) Enter a depth 10) Post it out and look for cutter comp on final passes. It will not post out finish pass cutter comp on any of our posts when using X5 or X7. Note: This is very buggy and will work with certain instances. Sometimes it will give comp on the 1st finish pass, but not the 2nd. Try comping in from exact center of circle vs moving the lead in a little. Also, try multiple finish passes vs 1 finish pass. Try a few scenarios and check the output. I would appreciate any feedback to see if it's Mastercam or "PEBCAK" (Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard)
