I am having issues when importing a "STP" file as the solid model and trying to create toolpaths from this solid part. I use the TURN PROFILE command and in the SHAPES group select the TURN PROFILE icon, select the solid and in the dialog box, enable SPIN and UPPER PROFILE. It should section and only show the upper half of the part but I cannot get Mastercam to do this? I am using Mastercam Lathe 2017 and am trying to follow instuctions as for AutoCAD and Solidworks files. (Exercise #20 in the Lathe Professional Courseware booklet). Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Cam
