  3. So I've just started back into the most recent version of Mastercam after using VISI for a number of years. So here's my current stumbling block it appears that when I post a G-code program that things are working properly. The control see's the program it even shows that the comp is on the correct side (right in this case) and displays a tool path that looks about right. BUT when the tool comes in to make a cut (only a finish pass in this case) the displayed x value is much smaller than the programmed one and indeed it will cut on the small side >.< Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried flipping the comp to the other side going through touch off and tool definition a number of times all with the same results. Here's the code in question: % N100 G96 S400 G99 N110 T03 M6 N120 G42 G0 X.2995 Z.0625 N130 G99 G1 Z-.0375 F.003 N140 X.303 Z-.0385 F.003 N150 G2 X.318 Z-.054 I.0120 K-.0155 F.003 N160 G2 X.31 Z-.066 I.0195 K.0000 F.003 N170 G2 X.3055 Z-.0685 I.0155 K.0120 F.003 N180 G1 X.3065 Z-.0785 F.003 N190 X.307 F.003 N200 G2 X.322 Z-.094 I.0120 K-.0155 F.003 N210 G2 X.314 Z-.106 I.0195 K.0000 F.003 N220 G2 X.3095 Z-.1085 I.0155 K.0120 F.003 N230 G1 X.3105 Z-.1185 F.003 N240 X.311 F.003 N250 G2 X.326 Z-.134 I.0120 K-.0155 F.003 N260 G2 X.318 Z-.146 I.0195 K.0000 F.003 N270 G2 X.3135 Z-.1485 I.0155 K.0120 F.003 N280 G1 X.3155 Z-.169 F.003 N290 X.5155 F.003 N300 G40 N310 M30 %

The Mastercam X8 Port Expert Tutorial is a single tutorial that introduces Port Expert, walks you through a practical example of how to precisely machine a head port from both sides using a tapered lollipop tool. The Port Expert toolpath uses 3-Axis machining as far into the port as possible, then switches to 5-Axis motion, leaving no fishtails, reverse moves or uneven transitions where the toolpaths meet. Within the software, collision checks are in place for the entire tool (shank, arbor and holder).

  18. I downloaded the mpaster X8 post processor. Updated post, control, and machine def to X9. Trying to use the post for a 4 axis HMC (B rotary axis). I make the Top plane the WCS, Front plane is the Tplane --- no B axis index (should be B0.0) when i post. However everything seems to be working fine when I change the Tplane to another plane. In this case I do get B index moves, which is what I want: WCS Top, with Tplane Right outputs B90.0 WCS Top, Tplane Back -- B180 WCS Top, Tplane Left -- B-90.0 Is there a way to get the post to output B0.0 ? thanks Bret

  22. I've just started using X8 - i think it is fantastic. I'm looking to find the parameters for the Description, Manufacturer name & Manf Tool Code in the 'General' Field of the Tool Manager. I would like to get them into my Tool List. Thanks in advance for any help, and retro thanks for all the help you guys have been in the past, I have picked your collective brains for several years as a browser and have benefited greatly from your knowledge .

  23. Verify started displaying ball mills, bull mills, as sharp pointed tools with faceted surfaces; see attached pictures. The work piece suffers from faceting also. I did nothing to provoke this. I simply showed up to work last Thursday, went to verify a part, and got this. I have been dealing with it ever since then. Any Ideas on why this is happening?
  24. Comrades, I have been searching for machining and manufacturing industry-related wall posters to hang in our programming room. Believe or not, I have been have trouble doing so. I called Hass, Mori seki and Cimtech. Those company's said they would look into it; that has been weeks ago. By posters I mean mastercam and machine tool company advertisements types. I can make my own, but there is nothing like the industry posters grew up with. Does anyone know where I can find some posters or wall decals? Thank you, John B
