  1. Version 1.2

    This book uses a variety of projects to describe the use of the View Manager for working with Cplanes and work offsets. It contains useful information for defining and working with different standard and non-standard planes and takes a look at using Mastercam's Transform Toolpaths in a multiple fixture environment. The last project covers Cplanes and work offset settings for a chuck indexing. Each tutorial guides you through Geometry Creation, Toolpathing, Verification and G-Code generation.

  2. Fellas, How are you setting up your tombstone programs? I want to see if anyone has alternatives to what I am doing. Currently, I have a template with the tombstone and vices loaded in as well as a few WCS already setup. I import a part model, position the part in the vise as I see fit, and program from that point. I break the tool paths down to operations as I'm usually only running a hand full of parts so it's not a big deal. A stock model is created for each op and I post each operation out on its own. I have a G10 setup for the post and get my numbers straight from Mastercam. It works okay but I wanted to see if others are miles ahead of me and what they are doing. Thanks for reading into this PS, the attached picture is an incomplete program so there are a few inconsistencies.
