I have several plugin .dll files in the plugins folder, the only one that is visible in the "Plugins" pull down menu is the height map plugin.  Any Idea why I can't see the other plugin's?  I have the plus version 9.8i latest version and I'm registered.

I have windows vista, if that helps.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Hopefully this will explain things...

Thanks for the rapid response. I understand what is documented on that link, however I added what I thought was a plugin that is called SpiralMillDoc.dll  into the plugins folder and restarted CamBam and I don't see it.  
Maybe its somewhere else, but the author shows it as a member of the plugin pulldown menu.

It looks like I picked a bad plugin, since spiral mill depth of cut is supported already, maybe this is why that plugin does not show up.  I'm just trying to install a plugin that shows up in the menu.

Regards,
Chris

Ah, I see.

I think that plugin was developed for version 0.9.7.  There were some changes made in 0.9.8 that meant older plugins need to be modified slightly and recompiled to work with 0.9.8.

However, I think that particular plugin is no longer needed in 0.9.8.
In 0.9.8 a depth increment property was added to drilling operations so it will use that to calculate spiral angles rather than the ratio of the cut and plunge feedrates.
