    :confused::confused:

    What does that have to do with an automatic saw? You walk away from your roll in and come back to 1 piece. You set up the auto and come back to 5-10-15 pieces, or a whole bar...

    Sounds like you have touched the tool off in machine at a different spot than how it is defined in Mastercam. If you look at the compensation for your tool/holder there are different options. One of...

    Why do you need to create a solid from surface?...

    Why do you need to create a solid from surface? You can program from wireframe and surfaces... (I get solids are IMO much better for 3d stuff tho).This doesn't sound like a CAM problem... although...

    3x/month? Last time I was looking at unemployment up there in IN it was 3x/week! Which is only (somewhat) fair IMO. If you can't job hunt and put in 3 apps a week you aren't trying that hard....

    Production parts? I would deburr in machine as much as possible, without getting carried away (ie extra setups). This does a couple things IMO.

    I don't think (or at least I was told) that is really the point of Camplete to check existing Gcode. It is to fix/minimize/optimize the toolpath motions before they are output into Gcode. Someone can...

    Maybe... at an additional cost (machine sim, kinematics, custom post processors, etc). So it might be a moot point, but I would like to touch on this -

    It seems silly to get a third party software...

    Well, that would be Vericut, which is universal, or canbe set to each machine you have (so to speak). My understanding is each seat of Camplete is dialed into your machine, your control, etc. So what...

    HS is one of those things/companies that sell because of who they are IMO. I am certainly not saying it is not a nice vise, or worth the money, but "the kid" probably won't like the price, or be able...

    Well, your machine is probably not "normal" for this consideration (as it is a hobby grade*), but most machines get a vise installed, even a small one will take up 2" in Z thereabouts. No real need,...
