Showtool and showtoolpath options

Postby md2756 » Fri Nov 21, 2014 5:49 pm

Ok, the word doc for cutviewer 3.2 says their should be show tool and show toolpath options under menu=>view tab.


I do not see them?

Hi mikem, and welcome to the forum. I have never seen those options in CutViewer. I would like to see them myself. The only way I have gotten CutViwer to show the toolpath itself was to not define a tool. It then shows the toolpath since it cannot simulate the cut. But it would be nice to single-step through a program and show both the toolpath and the cut it makes.

Hello,

I just discovered this forum (I use CV since some years, coupled with CamBam)

For me, this menu items are visible and they works well (but you must pause the simulation to change the settings)

the menu is a context menu that appears with a right clic, not the 'view' menu in the main menu bar

!!! Thank you, David, and welcome to the forum! I have been using CutViewer for over 10 years and did not know that! I guess Stan assumed everyone knew that "popup menu" meant "right click", but I did not... :)
