  1. Mastercam X4 lathe has been giving me an error for the past few days that I cannot figure out. It keeps telling me that my tool is colliding with my stock—after the stock has been set up—but there is no clear indication of where the tool collides with the stock. Also, it only happens with one specific tool while doing a specific face. I've tried messing around with Tool Clearance option in Stock Setup as well as DOC, but nothing. I have attached three pictures that include the tool Mastercam is failing with, the parameters I am using and the error I get on the geometry I am running. There are other tools I can use to program with, but we have alwas used this tool and we're trying to verify all of our parts, except this cannot be done if every time we try to regenerate we get this error. Thank you for your time.
