lucky for me I was half way through setting them up a hand-me-down. All I needed to do was install MasterCam.
Looked through the server closet and found the latest version on the shelf. Got all the way through the install and update. Went to start it up and got this
I tried getting them to try mecsoft visual cam for Onshape, but they kept blowing off the salesman. Their loss. Licences fall out of my responsibility. Good luck y'all
Not to mention first install failed in the very end since windows had some unfinished updates requesting system restart.
All I needed to do was to quickly tweak some timers.
It's not cad but all other traditional software sucks too..
Great post, @NeilCooke!

How long did it take you to bump into all these errors, must be at least like a week or so
here is another one, at least I know what it is doing, be good if I did not have to hit save all the time!
Everything in black was already opening fine, so no issues there, everything in green I took the time to browse and double click, so I know they are there also... Well, that was a huge waste of fricken time...
God I hate linking file based references...
I wish SW was as easy as Onshape sometimes... Right click, copy document, done
Meanwhile at Onshape HQ: "Hey everyone, new improvements have been added, here they are and how to use them! Enjoy"
But they have no issue spamming the hell out of the email I attempted to register...
Solidworks is now a phishing company I guess.. What a shady company they have become.
With the app store. If your sub is paid, you are working.
And thankfully the guy on the phone was a native English speaker no Latin required this time
Well it got stuck, guess all i can do is alt+f4 because i can't even save what i have on the other open documents...
This is what i get for trying to add one more configuration to a design table..
What a backwards world they work in.
Now I'm waiting for some time to Remote Desktop back to my Workstation to try to sort it out and Deactivate the license on that machine....meanwhile, I'll keep motoring in OS while on the road.
You do your overtime on onshape anywhere you want, and still take 1/4 of the time and effort
I was trying to work on two assemblies (separate instances of SW) While one was saving (takes a minute or so) I was gonna switch over and tweak views on a different job. (used to do this before)
Now with the icon showing an hour glass it blocks access to all other open windows, which means I have to wait for these long commands to finish before I can work on any other SW process...
How I miss "Open in new browser tab" right about now...
EDIT: Never mind, I was trying alt+tab and was getting no response, but I tried again and this time it let me alt+tab. Could have been wrong keystroke or some kind of glitch
Feel sorry for anyone who doesn't know keyboard shortcuts..
I have to manually constrain sketches on the part sometimes to get that obvious result.. :rolls eyes:
If they are in acad, there is a good chance if they want to move to 3D, it may be easier to convince them to try Onshape. Because they may not have been tainted by the bad habbits of SW and Inventor
