Hi, I have a question, I am using the mastercam X5, v1 and i have been using it for almost 2 weeks. I am trying to create an arc shape toolpath with using the swept 2d option. However i keep getting an error. the error is" warning- the along contour does not lie in a defined view". please help and let me know if there is any way to fix this
We use the setup sheet option in Mastercam and save to PDF so the guys on the floor at the machines can pull up the setup sheets on a computer. My request is; since Mastercam is already a CAD system why cant we do our screen captures as vectors instead of raster? If we could then we could zoom in on the screen capture and it would stay clear and PDF supports vectors. This is what is even being done across the web for websites because there's so many different screen sizes and resolutions. Vector is the way to go. I hope to see Masstercam do the same. Thank you.
I don't understand why they removed the Gview button from the lower status ribbon bar. I mean... they included the Cplane, Tplane, and WCS buttons- Why not include the Gview button as well?? I have a file with 20 custom Gviews, and I was using Gview... Named Planes.., to quickly select between custom views at the bottom of the main window. I can't use the C-plane named views button, because the gview doesn't follow the Cplane (and there's no way to force "Gview follows Cplane". The only way I see to quickly switch between named Gviews is to use the plane manager. I'd rather select a gview from the main window, without opening the plane manager. Why not include a Gview button, and have the Cplane/Tplane follow the Gview? I would think that graphical view selection would be an easy selection on the main screen. I can't even select a named Gplane from "graphics view" in the main ribbon bar. The only way to select a custom Gview is in the planes manager window. Why would I have to open the planes manager to select a Gview that isn't one of the main "Top/Bottom/Left/Right" Gviews?
