    Default FeatureCAM 5axis machine simulation question

    Does anyone know what setting controls where the fixture is placed on the machine table in FeatureCAM machine simulation.

    I think it's the "stock dialog/indexing/5 axis positioning/fixture location/offset of touch off point from mach zero/z", but for some reason changing that number isn't doing anything. I've had this problem before but can't seem to remember what I did to fix it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can't check right now, but there is a "offset to bottom of fixture" or something to that effect somewhere in the setup properties.

    FeatureCAM support came through with the answer. The "Setup - Simulation information" dialog box is where the distance from the STOCK AXIS to THE BOTTOM OF THE FIXTURE should be entered. The easiest way to get to the setup simulation box is double clicking on the .md file shown in the status bar.
