Transferring Setup

Transferring Setup

Note: At any point that (version) is present enter/insert/reference the version of Mastercam in question.

ie. A path states as ‘C:\Program Files\mcam(version)\common’ if you are working in Mastercam X8 the path will be ‘C:\Program Files\mcamX8/common’

 

Machine files

  • Control files (.control) found C:\users\public\documents\shared mcam(version)\CNC_MACHINES
  • Machine definitions (.mmd, .lmd, .rmd and/or .wmd) found C:\users\public\documents\shared mcam(version) \CNC_MACHINES
  • Post files (.pst, .psb and/or .psm) found C:\users\public\documents\shared mcam(version) \machine type\Posts (machine type could be Mill, Lathe, Router or Wire)

 

Tool Libraries; if you have modified or created your own C:\users\public\documents\shared mcam(version)\ machine type \Tools

 

Power library (wire machine only) C:\users\public\documents\shared mcamx8\wire\Power

 

Operation Libraries (.operations); if you have modified or created your own C:\users\public\documents\shared mcam(version)\machine type\Ops

 

Operations Defaults (.default); if you have modified or created your own C:\users\public\documents\shared mcam(version)\machine type\Ops

 

It is not recommended to transfer your configuration because there will be different paths and settings from one computer to another.
