Re: DANGER!

It does seem like this stuff is released untested sometimes but I've ran into the same thing with other softwares before too.

We only have 2 user's and only use TopSolid for CAM so our PDM is local.

Re: DANGER!

I had a part with 13 repetitions today that started as a mill document then repositioned to an EDM document. Everything seemed fine with it. So far I'm loving SP7 over SP5 ( I skipped 6 cause it broke "minimum tool length"). It seems to have fixed all the issues I was having. *knocks on wood* Have y...

Re: DANGER!

I've also noticed the the error "!" symbol pops up while configuring a hole machining but goes away after validated. I'm not sure what that's about.

Re: DANGER!

I've wrote nearly 15 3 axis mill programs and a couple 5 axis mill programs and at least 10 wire edm programs since SP7 was released. The only problem I've had was trying to replace a shape to update it to the next Rev. After SP6 I started making a restore point before I installed so I could go back...

Re: Selecting a tool and analyzing radius

Mine seems to behave exactly how you want yours too. I don't remember doing anything special to make it behave that way. I do have all my operation tabs on a different monitor than my graphics window though. Maybe all your tabs open in the same spot on your monitor which is causing one to close befo...

Re: How to grab surface to limit calculation area?

Are you talking about picking boundaries for Roughing and such? If you go to your Geometry tab you can pick your X, Y and Z min/max if you want a square boundary. If you need a different shape you can enable Bounding curves management( at the bottom of the Geometry tab) then draw a sketch or use exi...

Re: Posslbe to dig inside "TopSolid Machinig Tools" library?

You can look in your entities tree under Parameters and functions and see everything that makes up the tool. Under each Function you can single click and it will highlight what you're selecting in the graphics screen.

I used that a lot when I was making my tool library and tool assemblies.

Re: Displaying tool by hovering over part

The bottom icon to the right of your screen(while you have an operation open) controls this.

Re: Machining - templates not availible

Hi Michelle, The only machining templates available by default is a "Blank Template". You'll have to create your own templates and put them in your "My Templates" document located in the top left TopSolid icon/ File/Document templates/ Open My Templates. Once you've created them there you'll be able...
