    haha, dont blame you on mastercam, its far from my favorite program to use, but it is powerful.

    yes, that applies to all machines. no HSM is even less lines.
    we have camplete, and i do like it a lot! depending on what cam system you go with, it can either integrate into it so transferring the...

    do yourself a favor and stay away from dmg/mori!

    sounds like you've got your mind made up on the 500, i think you'll like it. other than my gripe about the processing speed limitation (80 lines...

    we got TSC with our umc and its one of the best decisions we've made. even though we dont drill a LOT, when we do, its just priceless, PLUS! i started using some endmills with coolant ports and its...

    i dont believe we paid extra for shipping

    p.s. talk to your haas sales guy, ours told us that they have a LOT of other financing options other than the ones listed on their website.

    for verification, you have Vericut, camplete and ncsimul (no personal experience with the last one) for 3rd party stuff, and then most cam systems will have their own machine simulation. we have both...

    this would be done in each operation using tool orientation.

    the way i look at it is: you can always do 3x work on a 5x machine, but not the other way around without spending more $$. so unless you REALLY need the large part swing capacity, its a no brainer...

    i wouldnt even bother doing any kind of surfacing on a haas with HSM. its a must imo. that said, its still not as good as any other control speed/processing power wise, but can be worked around with...

    chances are that if its over 6" you should be fine even without reinforcements. our slab was not only thin, but inconsistent.

    alignment process is still the same. we found out the hard way our slab wasnt rigid enough when they started leveling it first. could visibly see the concrete move with a level placed on it when we...

    beware with DMG support in general... socal support has been abhorrent for me.

    you well know the issues i've had with haas control and its processing power (or lack thereof...)

    this issue CAN be worked around with a capable cam package that can filter out the code properly....

    i have to agree, after a few initial install guffaws with our 500SS, its been a real treat to work with! not in the same class of machine as our matsuura LX160, but an incredible machine for the...

    i've programmed and set up parts without DWO/TCPC, i would NEVER willingly go back to that. extreme pain in the ass.
