SAT Fix on Student Computers



All right…. came in to school early before an all day meeting beccause I just had to try the .sat fix from the previous post as a student.

Good news or bad first?!?

Our school has two “fake” student accounts for us to test programs with, ect. I do not know the difference between the two accounts, b ut I tried them both.


First one didn’t work out so well.  I couldn’t even open EdgeCAM!  It worked September 7th, because I tested it. Somebody must’ve done something between now and then, I swear! This is the error I got.

Now for the good news? On the other account, other than the toolstore error, (which worked in September… I swear….) and it took ten minutes, I am not overexaggerating, for EdgeCAM to load and another 3-5 minutes for the part to load. I hope this is just a “first time” loading issue.

With those issues aside, the .sat finally loaded, I was able to apply toolpaths, and verify the part in simulation.

UPDATE! 7:45 12/8/2011 Just tried it with a real live student, with a real live student account, on a real live student computer, and it works!

Please try this in your classroom, on your computers, and let us know if it works!  Good Luck!

EdgeCAM Won’t Load an Inventor File?!?



So, This is a new one! Happy New School Year from EdgeCAM! It seems many schools are having problems where EdgeCAM Version 2011.10.1 or newer will not load an Inventor 2011 file in some cases. In what cases? Who knows. But if you come across this issue please thank Jamie Cuyler from Baldwinsville NY for coming up with the following workaround.

Please remember too: an SAT file is not PARAMETRIC. If you make changes to the Inventor file, you will have to go through the EdgeCAM process again I believe.

If it works for you, please let me know!
