    Is the drive installed? Doesn't look like it's showing up in the list of drives available.

    Have you looked through the parameters list for anything regarding axis enable/disable?

    Sign me up for a CAT 40 holder as soon as you have them. Would be cool to sell an 1" OD extension (maybe 6") that plugs into a holder as well.

    Thanks for the info regarding the monitor support and direct modeling. Seems as though SolidWorks is intent on milking their ancient code base instead of doing a proper re-write. Nothing...

    Happy (relieved) to report the machine made it's first chips with the new drive last night. Drove it with some HSM tool-paths and it chewed through a some 304 SS parts just like always.

    Does 2020 support high-res monitors?

    Does 2020 have high resolution monitor support? This is a biggie as I have a high res laptop that makes using SolidWorks a pain in the ass.

    Yea, I agree across all points. The maintenance structure is garbage. Never used tech support once. Issue is I have HSMWorks that will cease to support 2017 after next year (although HSMWorks is...

    I may have fixed the issue by tuning at the lower speed. Originally I tuned the drive at around 300RPM and then again at 500RPM. This time I very carefully tuned the drive at 50RPM and the issue...

    Yea, I agree, not the same. My machine is stock except for the new drive. You mentioned an undersized motor (mine is stock). I'm going to tune the velocity loop at a much slower RPM to try and dial...
