    It uses the created NCI. So no, not technically Gcode but its what the Gcode comes from plus some extra goodies from the post which all get combined to drive the sim. They use the same logic to...

    If you already run and know Mastercam and want to make your life easy, as mentioned above, just get a post with simulation from Postability. You'll need a post anyways so going this route you're...

    AD enforcing the 1 user things, yes. I remember a few threads, not sure if they were here or in a fb group.

    Mastercam already offers a subscription option. So, go have a chat with your boss!

    My thoughts on this and what will happen....

    Mastecam WILL move to subscription only and online licensing just like Fusion is doing. It seems to be the play for any public company hocking...

    Not off the top of my head. But as you were told, its not only the control but the toolpath in CAM as well as the post must all be onboard for this to work. Toolpath has to be capable of providing...

    Someone who only does 3D work? Not many controls support 3D compensation.

    Already went through this. There are tons of reasons why, basically, its easier.
    You want to use offsets, go ahead. I'm not going to try and convince you otherwise. But there is a reason why this...

    You will have look ahead issues and even problems with rads smaller than your cutter, cutter path crossing itself...forgetting to turn off on when retracting...the list goes on and on.

  10. Poll: The only time you'll get compensated feedrates is...

    The only time you'll get compensated feedrates is when using full diam comp. So your roughing passes will not have this adjusted feedrate, unless you are comping all those too, which would be...

    Biggest reason is leads. Lots more, like the one I mentioned above.
    Also, most program in CAM so there really isn't a need to simplify the code for manual editing. Post and go. No need to sit and...
  12. Poll: If the size of the tool needs to be drastically...

    If the size of the tool needs to be drastically changed, then most likely the program needs an edit (speeds feeds leads etc) Wear comp only.

    No. You cannot program in HLE then post in a licensed version. If you could, shops would only ever buy one licensed copy.

    Mastercam and 4k do not play well together. I would research this a little before making that move.

    Translate-Stretch.
    This keeps its associativity with toolpaths/solids as well and no trimming or extending needed. For this scenario, this is no less or no more efficient than parametric. And as I...

    Parametric is not something I see as a deal breaker for CAM. Sure it would be nice but if you know how to use the software you're only a couple extra clicks anyways. And if you're that concerned,...
