Stuck calculating toolpath

Using Carbide Create Pro v6 constantly freezes while calculating the rough toolpath at 45-50%. I use three different PC’s and all of them exhibit this issue. Usually force quitting and restarting CCP a few times gets it to chug through. Can’t even delete the path because it’s stuck calculating.

Anyone else experience this? Have a workaround?

Can we not calculate toolpaths with every single little tweak, maybe a “calculate button”.

Please post the file here or send it in to and we’ll do our best to look into it.

Hello Will,

It occurs with any of the files I have been working on and different bits/settings. At least 50% of the time it freezes running 50-60% processor usage (I’ve left it up to two hours with no progress, killed it and reloaded to have it work immediately), if it does complete then it’s fine recalculating any changes with that session. Additionally, I have been able to create a second identical roughing pass toolpath and have it complete calculating while the original path is still stuck on calculating.

If it will help I will create a sample file, the files I am currently using are proprietary and I cannot post them.

Please send us a file which shows this problem — post it here or send it to and we’ll do our best to look into this w/ you.

@WillAdams & @Symtrips - Where are you all at with this? I experience the same thing all the time, and it’s pretty frustrating. I like the Carbide Create Pro software, but a lot of people I talk to are moving away from this, and moving to the vectric software because of these issues.

I don’t think we have any files which have been sent in to which haven’t been resolved.

If you have files which you are having trouble w/, please post them here or send them in to and we will do our best to assist.

Shortly after posting this an update came out for Carbide Create which seems to have addressed the issue. Perhaps the installation I had experienced a compiler error? It’s still mind numbingly slow at calculating roughing passes on my less powerful PC that controls the machine, but it no longer hangs.
