Hello. I am learning on version 2021 and came to final stages of Mold extention -inserting standard components and cooling…trying to add components from DME company. But I can find only the Mold Bases, not any components(like screws, baffles, slides, locating rings, Interlocks cooling line design etc.)
When I look in the program subdirectory, I can see ZWMold>Standard>English>DME_INCH and in this subdirectory seems to be all the components I am looking for…but it doesn’t display under Mold extension command The window of any component is empty - I cannot even select DME supplier.
I am wondering if I have to do something(issue some special command) to initiate it or what? Can anyone help?

Hello…I’ve got a tip from someone today, that the DME components in Inches are there, but not under expected menu (the icon menu under MOLD-Library-like Loc.Ring, Screw, EGP etc…), rather under MOLD-Library-“General” Icon…The parameter(?) window opens on left side of the drawing screen and second item down are the different components by DME…like: Cooling, CorePin, DowellPin…GuidePins, Locating Ring etc…where you specify additional parameters…DME components

Hi Cowboy99

Do you remember the vernum of that version?

in the 2020 version the NC output in turning when it is in inches, throws this line of code


HI cale99:
This is really terrible. If there is no simulation & inspection, it will be a major accident.
