    How to save temporary updated stock in solid verify?

    Hello guys.
    I am new with solidcam(SC).
    In another words of my question, I want to stop recalculation of stock in solid verify each time I add new operation.
    I know STL milling, but I don't want to split job to some parts.

    Thank you in advance.

    Not sure why u need to do that.
    You would like to mill different parts in one job?

    Open the CAM part, at the of the Job Tree, under the CAM Manager is a branch called 'Settings'. Open this and go to the 'Updated Stock calculation' page and down towards the bottom there is a radio button called 'Manual'. Turn this button on.

    Then when running SolidVerify you will see some additions to the icon menu for save and restore. These will save the updated stock in SolidCAM's *.STF format. If you want to save STL's, click on 'File' and then select 'Save stock to STL'

    That should do it

    No, no guys. I don't need STL. I just want to remove calculation each time I do solid verify. It consume more time than I do operations.

    I found it. 'Settings'. Open this and go to the 'Updated Stock calculation' "save updated stock calculation for every" change 0 to 1 or what your want number of operations.

    OK, just do the first bit and set the stock calculation to manual. Then just save the stock from within SolidVerify at the intervals you decide, like after a long sequence of 3D Milling before a whole load of Drilling jobs.
