Hi Karl:

  I did find a bug in the VBit code.. new release soon to fix it. Still dont know why you crashed, but it may be related..

HIYA Art, I just noticed that in the 4 veiws you have the top and front bottons crossed.

Still working fine here except it does NOT  drill the holes (;-) must be a dull drill bit. It just mushes down through the material and springs back up.

JUST TEASING, it does show the tool motion  just no visual hole at that location in the material.

(;-) TP

Heres a new version guys, turns out any VBit would have failed to cut.. this version shoudl also be faster. Ill check the
other bits.. I may have screwed up one of those..

Here's the file I play with the most and the one that caused the crash in Extreme resolution.

Terry.  On my machine not only do the peck drill cycles show the motion, it also leaves holes in the model on the screen

I can make it crash repeatably
   Load Mach4
    Enable
    Recent File
    Cir-Sq_Var.tap
    Diagnostics
   Gsim
    Resolution
    Extreme
    Sim speed 100%
    Reset
  and it will crash when the prep for sim gets to about 5%
