Akkk, should have started there first
Was pretty simple
The registry was messed up
It was still pointing to the 0.9.8 program which no longer exist on this machine

I edited the registry key to point to 1.0
Then I was able to associate a .cb file with cambam 1.0

Here's the registry path in case anyone else runs into this situation

Very good.

It's a coincidence you should come back on the forum today, I've been playing about with valves myself today trying to get the Leslie West tone. He used SUNN amps years ago with KT88 valves.

Good luck with that
Leslie's hands were a big part of his tone Smiley

Nice!! Been a while since I've used CamBam, but have a new project to do, and just checked on the off chance there might have been an update from the venerable 0.9.8N, and found there's a 1.0 - Super Duper Cool! (and its available for Linux, too - Super Duperer Cooler!!)

As a long-time user and license holder, I genuinely appreciate all of your work on CamBam - it has brought much joy, success and (emotional :-) richness to my CNC work.

Hello everyone.

Here is something I stumbled across when comparing version .98 to version 1.0.

Same cb file (attached below)  but posted (fanuc) with version 1.0 then opened in .98, and posted again without any changes for comparison of code.

Both post correctly, but the 1.0 nc file measures 101K and the .98 file measures only 61k. They both seem to go about the pocket milling slightly diffrently when looking at the code. My machine only has 256k of memory.

The 1.0 post actually takes 2 minutes longer according to NC Corrector simulator.

So, its a larger file with 1.0 that takes longer to sum it up.

This is a significant difference in file size. I tried it on another cb job file that involved alot of slope cutting and the sizes were the same.

The only difference with the cb file in question is that this file has pocket milling, and that is where it adds more code.

Has anyone run across this, and is it only when pocket milling is used?

hello
cambam V1 outputs the correct code. It seems like you found an unknown bug in Cambam 0.9.8.
In the Pocket mop you use a spiral lead in with a 10 deg. spiral angle.
It looks like V 0.9.8 ignores this spiral lead in and just goes straight down to Z -0.1875.
This saves Cambam 0.9.8 the entire spiral tool path with every depth increment.
What needs to be investigated in more detail.

Yes, I did notice the plunge move in .98.
I just assumed there was not enough room for a 10 degree spiral, so it just plunged instead.
Another cam package that I use (SheetCam) will plunge instead of ramping if there is not enough room so I assumed it was normal.

Edit: I switched optimization mode from 0.9.7 to 0.9.8 and it spiraled down correctly instead of plunging.
