HSMworks does, they call it “adaptive clearing”. That’s just a little background to preface this statement: Post by vinny Post by Joe Post by vinny However, it’s a solidworks world right now. HTH — Black Dragon http: Post by vinny Mastercam x’s selection power seems like it takes a little while, kinda grows on ya. What is their policy on updates and maintenance? I didn’t get anything from you here at home, I’ll forward you the address.
Especially in my area. But lots of people like dialogue boxes. Post by vinny Post by vinny There’s no way in hell anybodys gonna make a cut in mastercam in 5 minutes without ever seeing it before. Post by vinny Guess we will wait and see. With SolidWorks many users were able to move away from products like Rhino and do everything inside of SolidWorks Post by Joe Post by vinny However, it’s a solidworks world right now.
Post by vinny I ,astercam people taking With hsmworks you can watch the youtube traing videos and be well on your way to making good parts.
You pick a command, say hsmmworks. Post by vinny Mastercam x’s selection power seems like it takes a little while, kinda grows on ya. It’s not a fair argument till the class of the software is known. Which are easier, better and more powerful? Post by vinny c2 surface editing?
Post by vinny I’m still curious about the costs of each product. Too bad mastercam solids suck. The last time I used it was Used to have to send people to another part of the country for a week, now, code in 5 minutes, saved and verified!
You have got experience with Solidworks. I would not be surprised if the CAM was just as expensive.

I plan a comparison of the two. If Vinny likes it it must be good because he knows Bing, and anyone that knows Bing Originally Posted by John Welden. I plan a comparison of the two. Post by vinny uhhh Post by vinny HSMworks wont tranform or copy operations, or copy them between views or faces.
It’s like the anti-esprit!

Post by vinny Post by vinny I downloaded and installed mastercam direct, masetrcam that worked ok. You will be impressed. We have one floating license on the network to share among three programmers.
Black Dragon Post by vinny Mastercam x2 opens solidworks part files, but this web site is selling a mastercam direct addon for “x2”? Hopefully when I’m wrong I will be corrected. It can make a copy, a full independent copy, or even copy the geometry and the toolpath. I could install the HSM module for Mastercam, have code in 30 seconds and be making chips 15 seconds after that.
Post by vinny I’m still curious about the costs of each product. But with mastercam direct it saves it with the tree intact. I will also say that MasterCAM makes me miss GibbsCAM desperately, and I wish that the 3D hsmsorks wouldn’t just blend into a single color non-shaded mess that makes my brain hurt if I shift the view the wrong direction. Post by Joe Post by vinny As far as liking solidworks, then not, then liking it again is nothing more than evolution hsmmworks it has to do with the software and not personal likes.
