Sounds like u are covered what mc version I have used mcx v9 2005 a bit but I have no schooling. The 3d modeling seems to lack a bit IMO. But cam works great 4 writeing a program.

M5 what windows version does that run? I also have used a 1995 version 4.1 just to communicate with the mill. The nice thing Imo about the newer version (besides not using windows 95) you can have the help bubbles come up and tell you what the button's are. As opposed to the old master cam was full of short abbreviation's Witch were almost impossible for me to decipher.

Cool machine photo I snapped earlier today:



some weight reduction milling on new lids for a 10 foot vacuum tank I'm building to upgrade one of the lines at the plant. programmed with Gibbs and cut complete in about 2 hours including programming... running a Sandvik 1 inch 390 with H13A inserts at 5000RPM/45IPM. About a quarter of what those inserts in that tool can do, but I'm maxing out my spindle horsepower so I'm happy with it. Using the "Golden Shower" cutting fluid... I actually don't mind this stuff compared to what I've usually run, which is the white kind you usually use with mostly aluminum workload. This stuff is better for steel, I don't mind it although it smells strong when it's fresh. Gonna put some vacuum seal glands in that outer perimeter on all 3 plates tomorrow and the next day... two of the plates are so long I have to do them in two operations, and dial it out and reset between each... Thank god for the Renishaw probe system when it comes to re-positioning

(PS for reference they're 2.5" wide pockets .750 deep with over 12 inch gap between vices, so some of the middle pockets are cut at reduced speed for harmonics)

Harmonics can suck I used to work on street bike wheels (Widening them) they could ring like you wouldn't believe. My teacher ran them at 35 rpm because of this. When I took over I set up a dampening system so I could do the work at 210 rpm doesn't sound like much but its fast on a 18 in wheel in a manual lathe. Nice job!

Yea I was reading about some of the harmonics calculations earlier,

Aluminum Cutters Discussion: Helix Angles

needed to pick between a couple options from Kennametal for doing 600 inches worth of 1/8" wide grooves, .300" deep in 6061 while being limited to 6000 RPM... got way more info than I needed in that thread. good read though, and interesting. I decided on the 2 flute 45 degree helix aluminum endmill, and when I called my supplier they convinced me to buy the 3 flute 37 degree instead due to less delivery time
