Problem whit mastercam and robodk
#1
Hi!

Problem connecting RoboDK and MasterCAM. When I select RoboDK - Update selected operations in the MasterCAM environment, the following warning appears: 'Nothing to simulate. Operation aborted '.
What could be wrong? I have the operation selected in Mastercam and Machining Reference in RoboDK.

Hi Bruno,

Have you look at this part of the documentation: https://robodk.com/doc/en/Plugin-Mastercam.html#Mcam

Hello Jeremy, 
Thank you for the help with the previous issue - it's fixed now. 
However a new problem appeared - when sending the .NC file to RoboDK, the correct tool id is shown but the tool length is not added to the spindle. In RoboDK the option to create cutters is on.
Could this be a problem with the post-processor? Is there a way to alter the following code so it considers the tool length?

Hi Bruno, 

I didn't use our MasterCAM plugin in a while as I don't have a valid license here, but if I remember correctly, you need to set the tool length manually after the cutters were created. 

Maybe @Albert can confirm?

Hi Bruno,

If you use MasterCAM I recommend you to use the native MasterCAM NCI files instead of an NC file. This is the default behaviour when you use the RoboDK Plugin for MasterCAM. NC files depend on your post processor and you are likely to see strange behaviour.

If you can post the NCI and/or NC files we can better help you.
