CAD is OK, but CAM is not a CAM

CAD is OK, but CAM is not a CAM

"If I am currently using an NC license, and have my computer setup for
distributed services on my machine, are you saying that the
dcadsetup.bat will use my existing activated floating license?"



Yes.



"And while the distributed services are calculating my cl file, will I
be able to do other tasks in Pro-E? Currently, when a CL file is being
calculated locally, the software is 'busy' and unresponsive."



That's the best part of it. You wil be free to create new toolpaths...
great for mold makers.. that are used to long computation times...



Pro/NC was very innovative on this... it's pity that they could not keep
ahead of the competition... with things like that, they were, 10-15
years ago...

CAD is OK, but CAM is not a CAM

OK. It's been a long time coming. But I was finally able to get out IT
dept and our VAR to work together on getting Distributed Computing setup
on my machine and it seems to be working.



Now, if I want to calculate a sequence, or output a CL file for an
operation, I can 'submit' it to my distributed computing resource and it
does indeed work in the background.



The problem is when I 'fetch' the completed results; my session of Pro-E
seems to be recalculating the sequence again negating any time or
productivity savings.



Is this normal? How do I get to retrieve the results without
recalculating?



Thanks in advance,
