    +1 here. I still don't think 8 is ready for prime time. I am comfortable with 7 and not compelled to upgrade.

    Did you go into "System Setup" and crank up the settings under "Visualization"? There are several tunable settings like "Animation", "Perspective", and "Visualization Quality". In fact, playing with...

    Its Sprut flakiness. It has been doing this for me for the last 3 releases or so.... Not a show stopper, but certainly annoying.

    Beautiful! This, and Steve Huck's "Little Demon V8" on my must do list (modeled, not programmed yet), behind finishing my ATC. Maybe by 2020.....

    The Sprutcam plugin is just the equivalent of exporting IGS and importing to Sprutcam. Nothing you change in the Alibre model changes in Sprutcam. The Mecsoft Visual Mill (when purchased through...

    Well said. Too bad all this had to play out in public in the first place (or ever occur at all actually).

    A lot of the items relating to sensors, M7, etc... are very easy to do with addition of a BOB and using LinuxCNC. I have a CNC4PC C11 board, and 3 parallel ports (usual Tormach port, BOB port, and...

    The spindle speed at 200RPM happens via the way you create a tool. The fix is to pick an appropriate operation (i.e. create a pocketing operation), open that operation, and in "Tool", define the tool...

    A tension/compression head takes that worry away, especially when actual vs. commanded is that close. I tap on my 1100 all the time, no issues so far.

    Absolutely! I am currently doing this for my 1100... Very much like what Ray has done, and Hoss did with his ATC. I'm using proximity sensors to sense the tool in the spindle and the pocket, using...

    I have read the white paper, and I understand why Tormach made the choices they did. I was approaching this as more of a "return on investment" thing. You can test and tune to try to max out rapid...

    Why do people think this is a good idea? You are pushing the machine beyond what Tormach considers safe and reliable, and for what.. To shave 2 seconds off your total program time? Rapid moves are a...

    My experience with 1/2" 3 flutes has been poor on my 1100 for some reason, but 3/8" and under work great. I've tried several things without luck, just get a lot of squeal and chatter in 6061.

    If you're willing to send me the Gcode, I can cut air on my 1100 with it using linuxCNC (I don't run Mach3 anymore), and see if it gives the same error result.

    Do you check the tool path preview? You should be able to see situations like that with a deep z move. That is how I caught my tool table nicely setting tool #10 to length of 0! I have had the tool...
