  1. My computer crashes when running a mill turn simulation
  2. 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.
  3. Hi all, I am trying to simulate a lathe operation on a lathe billet with a machine I have created myself based on a commercial CNC lathe model. I follow the tutorials to create the .xml file with the kinetic diagram and the solid parts of the machine. Once I get it, when I try to open it, the following message appears on the screen several times: A translation axis is missing in xml. machine definition initialised with default definition. The thing is that I don't know how to solve it. I hope I can find help here, I have looked all over the internet and I haven't found anything that could help me. Thank you very much.
  4. Is it possible to load a tool used in a milling operation onto a tool locator that is loaded onto a tool spindle, It seems I can only load tools used in turning operations onto tool locators. Here I am attempting to load a milling tool onto a tool locator and it doesn't work, I can only load the tool directly onto the tool spindle. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hi guys, I am curious if any of you have ever had this error "cannot normalize null vector" after verifying/simulating and trying to save the .STL? Any help would be great thanks!
  6. 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
  7. I have just bought an matec 5-axis machine With the configration as on Picture. Anyone have an machine file for this type of machine ? Anyplace i can download else buy one ? Understand that i also can Draw one myself in Mastercam. Best From Henning
  8. What are some of the other peoples thoughts about this topic? Does anyone know of a CAM system that does this in the Verification and Simulation? I have used Finish in Lathe and Point along with Mill 3D contour. In Mill 3D Contour and Point toolpath. How do you normally program it? I think there are much bigger fish to fry in the grand scheme of things, but trying to send something to someone showing a finished part that does not look like the finished part makes it hard for them to feel comfortable I am not really crazy. I put this below 100's things on the needs to be done list for Mastercam, but maybe some others can shed some different light on this subject that maybe I am not seeing. Thanks in advance for comments suggestion or ideas.
  9. When I do a toolpath simulation with a stock model is there a way to record it so that it can be played back using windows media player? It would be nice to be able to do this so that we can show the simulation to people who do not have mastercam on their computer.
