    Phoenix is a cool place, I spent a week in Mesa.

    For some reason I chose that week to be at the end of July though....I will not be moving there. lol

    We actually get less inches of rain per year than a number of places that might surprise you, like Houston for example. The difference seems to be that most of those other places will get rolling...

    Mounting a VM-3 to the turret is the ultimate big brain move.

    The problem with high flute tools in aluminum is that you lose the gullet. Chips pack in, or you overload it and the tool breaks. Since you're only doing about .060" RDOC you might be able to get...

    Hmm, I'm not sure exactly what's wrong as your snippet looks good to me, however I would make sure you throw a G97 in there somewhere before the spindle command. The only thing I can think is it's...

    So support didn't take a hit? Because our support through DP has been fantastic so far and that's what I'm the most wary about.

    We have an early 2010s TT1800SY here, so feel free to ask any specific questions if you have them.

    It has had some alignment issues and been down a few times in the year I've been here, but it...

    Yeah..... Imagine being the idiot that has spent the last 5 months migrating everything from Featurecam to Esprit.

    We do as well here, but I've worked in shops with much less of a tooling budget and it was always a PITA. Opening up those interior rads is such an easy way to increase the machinability of your...

    This. And if you really want to do us a favor, don't use fractional sizes, go up a little.

    ie. instead of .125 rads +/-.005, do .140 or .300 instead of .250. Our tools come in fractional sizes,...

    We used to use the white scotchbrite to help deburr a lot of our plastics. Doesn't help with holes though.

    If this is right then Yardbird was probably right. He never commands a G98 so I'm guessing the thing is trying to feed at 6 IPR.

    We are actually in the same position as you and just purchased two of the Fette axial heads. We haven't tried them out yet though, will probably start testing within the next month.

    I don't actually know what your New View plane looks like or how it's oriented, but I'd be leaning towards them all saying Lathe upper left. The stranger part about what happened to you is that that...

    Well, that shouldn't affect the orientation of your tool, but what it might have done is refresh or create a plane which solved it? It could also have just been bugging out, I'm not sure.

    I finally just recreated it. My guess is you had one of those new view planes completely active when you made the path. That's the only way I can get it to do this. Set your active plane to top (like...

    In the tool setup page, is the tool set as horizontal or vertical? It's also interesting to me that your tool angle button on your toolpath page is available. That box is greyed out for me. What does...

    Yep, that's right, I was wrong. My experience with mastercam is 90% on the mill side and it shows. Show us a screenshot of your toolpath parameters and the page for that tool.
