I have been looking into the issue some of you have been facing where MasterCAM hangs / crashes when it is loading. I may have found a potential fix for this. In digging around I have found this to solve the problem for me:
- Browse to the folder with the MasterCAM application in it (C:/Program Files/MasterCAMDemoHLE2017)
- Find the Mastercam Application file
- Right Click on the application > Run With Graphics Processor > High Performance Nvidia processor
It seems as if this issue is related to an incompatibility with certain versions of Windows, Nvidia graphics processors, and MasterCAM. This solved it on my computer, but I haven’t had a chance to test this elsewhere yet.
