    It's time for another Mastercam rant

    Thanks for the response. I don't believe turning is included in the free version. I run very similar and repost all code and verify on each order. I know there are those that don't but I do it to refresh my memory of what to expect at the machine. We maintain our own post. One thing am...

    It's time for another Mastercam rant

    Thats cool. I briefly used CAMWorks many years ago and did not remember those options. Or likely did not spend enough time in it to discover them. So while cutting a groove camworks will automatically change offsets if it cuts with the front edge vs back edge? I only ask because I use SW and...

    It's time for another Mastercam rant

    LOL, probably nothing really. offsets on both sides of a groove tool and have them change automatically, parameters in dialog boxes, call custom code in a post from in the program with user elements etc..... To be honest I don't know how long all of these features have been in there. I can...

    It's time for another Mastercam rant

    Been using smartCAM since V13.5 It is funny to see CAM software brag about things they are do that I did in that late 90's.

    Fusion 360 RIPS OFF subscription customers by removing multiaxis tool paths

    Hello gkoenig, I have similar experience. 15years SW and Fusion before it was called Fusion. First time downloaded from apple app store in 2011. I would agree that there is likely not much fusion cant model. But that is like saying there is not a house I can't build with a hand saw and...

    Yes it is getting old. They seem to find something to change every couple months. Named user license, now cloud credits are going away and the all new Flex Tokens will take the place. Fusion Ultimate and Fusion standard. Never mind lets roll it into one. Then extensions and credits. We...

    OT : CRF250R Backfire

    We did install a new plug. Wow those are a little salty to buy. $30-$40 each depending on where you get them. This things has throttle position sensors and crap like that. I bought he service manual that tells how to test the throttle posiiton with an ohm meter.

    OT : CRF250R Backfire

    Thank you. I would not call it continuous but it happens once then a delay then again. Thank you. The exhaust seemed to be cocked at the studs where it attacehs. It has a copper gasket. Will look to see if it is bent from not being installed correctly.

    OT : CRF250R Backfire

    Hello, I know this is WAY OT. Does anyone know of a good resourse or forum that could help me diagnose a backfire on a CRF250R? I tried the thumper talk forum but never got a response. This is a backfire under load or acceleration NOT deceleration. It works fine at idling along. Once you...

    Where are the six new steel mills?

    Wisconsin Legislature: 939.48 I think the entire rittenhouse situaton is terrible from all sides. However in Wisconsin the law is clear that even if you provoke the situation and loose your claim of self defense it can be regained. I would asume his running for 2 city blocks would regain his...

    Changing lathe chucks

    Thanks for the answers. I assumed it was fine but thought I wanted to be safe. I understand what you are saying about a flat back chuck. However I already own the one I am installing and will likely never change it back. This kind of work makes up 95% of what I do so a 4 jaw is a must. I...

    Changing lathe chucks

    I have a HAAS SL30 with a 12" Samchully hydraulic chuck. I want to change it over to a 4 jaw. We mainly manufacture split parts and must center the split line in the chuck before turning. The back of the Samchully chuck does not have an A2-6 taper. It has a flat back and uses an adapter...

    Sandvik Group buys Mastercam

    Hard to say it will have good implications for many. What alternative does it provide that was not already there? MasterCAM was always an alternative. Now if they change something it may be good for many.

    Problem with Fusion360 on Haas machine... Z height to start is too low.

    Have you tried this in single block. I assume the head is dropping on the G53 Z0 line. Likely you just don't have enough travel. I believe G53 z0 is below the max z height the machine can travel. In MDI crank the head up as far as it will go and command the G53 z0 and see if the head drops

    G68 Rotation

    When using a G68 to rotate the coordinate system do I need to cancel it before changing work planes (G17,G18,G19)? I assumed I need to call out the work plane before the rotation command so we know what axis to rotate around but then once the rotation is set I could call up other work planes...

    So I assume everyone doing ITAR or who has signed NDA's only use paper drawings sent through the mail to suppliers?
