You shouldn't need solids. If you want to post the file here we can take a look at it. Otherwise it's going to be hard to diagnose the problem.Originally posted by wingman
I am having trouble getting Mastercam to recognize the surface I lofted in Mechanical desktop. It is a smooth contoured airplane wing surface (not solid). When I go to create my toolpath (-surface-rough-flowline) it will not allow me to pick my surface as the drive surface. I also just installed Tahlcam, but haven't figured out how to use it yet. Any suggestions? Do I need a solid to cut a freeform surface in Mastercam?
I would appreciate any help, comments, suggestions. Thanks
