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.

Due to post Brexit calendar austerity measures, coupled with US trade sanctions on working hours, what at first glance appears to be several months since the previous development release actual only equates to a few short, EU approved weeks!  Roll Eyes  

That said, I am pleased to announce a new (official) V1.0 alpha 15 release…

http://www.cambam.info/downloads/#devt

As always, release notes are at the bottom of the what's new page.

The main focus has still been trying to make sure V1.0 is a big improvement over venerable 0.9.8 and not to introduce any new or unexpected problems.  

If you have already made the move to V1.0, there is a new menu option, 'Tools - set file associations', which will associate .cb files with the current running CamBam version.

I think we are getting near now to retiring 0.9.8 but please shout out if anything looks odd or unexpected in V1.0.
I very much appreciate the amount of trust placed in CamBam's g-code, with your expensive and passionately built
CNC machinery and tools, so thank you very much for your patience and feedback while we make sure everything works as expected.

Regards

Andy [10bulls]

Thanks for the development work!

I got a crash however, trying to set file associations. Could it be because I still keep 0.9.8  and didn't completely remove R14?

Before asking a question do some effort and walk through all menus and options in CamBam.  Maybe the answer is there. Please.

Hello

I did the same, R15 installed over R14, 0.98 still here, and file association works (W7 - 64, admin session) ...
