    Ignoring that this thread was brought back from the dead last month from over eleven years ago I've been using Hypermill at the current job for about four months, had a week of training, and...

    I wouldn't pay a ton of heed to the terminology. CAMWorks has a toolpath called Corner Slot that isn't what I'd call it. The damn thing just needs a name and everything has a tolerance. Optimal load...

    Chip thinning should explain why these are actually cutting the same chip thickness. Think thick-to-thin chip formation. I have never seen an HSM toolpath vary in reality by more than the tolerance...

    I've been using HSMWorks for four years and this doesn't happen if your toolpath is set up appropriately. You're using the free version, correct? If your stock matches the toolpath it will not exceed...

    Frankly none of this is canon, except probably sharp inserts.

    We use three flutes as much as possible, and aluminum-specific models such as YG's Alu-power or Destiny's Viper. They work very well....

    Curious... I've only been through Heathrow once, and that's the most I've ever seen of the UK.

    I didn't modify lead settings, stay-down distance, etc. so it has a lot of retracts, a start location that I'd probably change a little, might tweak lead arcs depending on machine, basically what...

    Didn't see HSMWorks yet, so here's one, close to bog standard (this can be tweaked to be a bit more efficient, include both ways travel, etc.):

    There is more nuance than that simple language in the actual license agreement.

    This is not true if you are a student or enthusiast, you certainly can continue to use it for free if you are not using it for monetary gain.

  16. Any Way to Disable Truncated Tool List?

    So on our 2012 VF-6SS if one runs a program in Edit mode to see the simulation, the control cuts out any tools not called in the tool list for the offsets table.

    However, if you run the program in...

    What do you want in a tool library? There are certainly plenty of ways to gain efficiency in HSM, especially if you're making similar parts frequently.

    And as has been stated, it's going to be...
