  1. 2018 Verify has the option to reference a stock model thats in the tree in the toolpath manager right?
  2. I was machining a part and the part moved considerably. I have created a stock model for the toolpath that was running when said incident happened. My question is, is there a way to create curves or something on the stock model so I can attach the origin point to existing material? Any help on how to create geometry on the stock model or any other solution would be greatly appreciated.. Thank you Cheers!!
  3. I am having a problem in X8 with the stock model. I have the build from Sept 22 (under the help>about tab), pretty sure I downloaded the latest version... So if I verify a part and save it as an stl it looks like garbage when I use the file as the stock model. Oddly, if I use the stock model toolpath and generate it from source operations it looks fine. If I take that stock model (generated from the source operations and stock setup) and right click and export to stl it looks fine as well. Any ideas? I have my save as stl tolerance at .005 in the mastercam simulator defaults. I don't know if the probelm is repeatable in other files yet, but I did try and restart MCX and that didn't help. I vaguely remember seeing this a little in X7 too... Would the geometry of the part affect any of this? It was a .step import FWIW. The part itself is fairly small, 1/2x2x6 roughly, but it does have a lot of small features. I can't post any pics or files because it is ITAR controlled. Thanks for any help
  4. Hi All, I'm trying to create a stock model from an op using a custom tool and I'm getting the following message: "Stock model regen failed to access toolpath data - unsupported type? unsupported tool or bad tool definition? missing custom tool file." The tool geometry is coming from a dxf file. I had no problems creating the tool and it verifies just fine. For some reason the Stock Model operation can't use it. Are there any special requirements for Stock Model that dictate the tool type or the location for a custom tool's geometry? Thank you for any advice, Dan

    Stock Model Toolpath

    Hello everyone, Wondering if anyone has some insight on why do you have to setup the stock view in the Stock Model Toolpath to TOP for it to display right. I am using a Solid Stock on a separate level on my Current OP1 WCS but if I setup the stock view to OP1 the stock does not fall in the right place. See attached !
