woodWOP 7.0 - SLOW on CNC BMG511 (2016)

  • WoodWop 7.0 using .mprx format. on my BMG 511 (2016 year) cnc is slow when generating the program and when changing the value in the program(offset takes 4min to change) it has a delay (lag). Maybe somebody had a similar issue and sorted it out. I have already changed the CPU to an i7 and added an SSD hard drive. I think the problem is that the WIN7 OS is 32bit, with only 2GB of RAM, other computers use 64bit Win and have at least 6GB of RAM, I think that's the problem, but I can't change the WIN and motherboard.

  • Yes even on our newer machine (2021), the PC is unbearably slow.

    No solution yet.

    We do all our simulation on the office PC, because it is many times quicker (even with having to walk over to it!)

  • using WoodWop 7.1.94.15 doesn't seem as slow as WoodWop 7.0.51.5 in this case. I am thinking of updating the firmware somehow to confirm this version. is it possible to do this and does it help?

  • We have the same problem with our CNC BMG 310 (2017) and it is not compatible for an WW8 upgrade... what a bad joke....

    haben auch die bmg 310 aber aus 2019 mit win7 professional und bei uns läuft ww8 perfekt und schnell

    pc hochfahren in 3min und runterfahren 1min. die platzbelegung machen wir immer mit mprx und das dauert nur ein paar sekunden bei aufwändigen teilen vielleicht 10sec. es ist ein handelsüblicher dell rechner verbaut. aufgerüstet mit ssd und mehr speicher von dell direkt.

    grundvorraussetzung zum kauf der cnc war ein normaler pc, und das kein industie pc verbaut ist. denn mit industrie pc s hatten wir schon schlechte erfahrungen was aufrüsten und neu versionen betrifft. was bringt die beste cnc technik wenn sie nur im ausslieferungszustand einwandfrei läuft, und nicht mit den update versionen einfach angepasst werden kann.

  • also have the bmg 310 but from 2019 with win7 professional and we have ww8 running perfectly and quickly

    boot up pc in 3min and shut down in 1min. we always use mprx to allocate the space and it only takes a few seconds for complex parts, maybe 10 seconds. A standard Dell computer is installed. upgraded with ssd and more storage direct from dell.

    the basic requirement for buying the cnc was a normal pc, and that no industrial pc was installed. because we have had bad experiences with industrial pc s when it comes to upgrading and new versions. what is the point of the best cnc technology if it only works properly in the delivery condition and cannot be easily adapted with the update versions.

    I wish we had done the same! How do you find using the normal PC? Was there any issues?

    nur erst als er auf die letzte version von ww7.2 umgestellt wurde haben die probleme begonnen das er damit komplett überfordert war.

    häufige abstürze und aussetzer und ewiges laden im hintergrund bis hin zu meldungen von ww das zu wenig arbeitsspeicher zur verfügung steht.

    habe dann da die garantie schon abgelaufen war angefangen mit hilfe des technischen support von dell den pc aufzurüsten.

    jetzt läuft er perfekt keinen eizigen absturz mehr oder hängenbleiben im postprocessor. bin mehr als happy das es geklappt hat. mit einem industrie pc würe es nicht gegangen ohne alles neu aufzusetzen denke ich.

  • only when he was switched to the last version of ww7.2 did the problems start that he was completely overwhelmed with it.

    frequent crashes and dropouts and eternal loading in the background up to messages from ww that there is not enough memory available.

    Since the warranty had already expired, I started upgrading the pc with the help of Dell's technical support.

    now it runs perfectly no more single crashes or getting stuck in the postprocessor. I'm more than happy that it worked. I don't think it would have worked with an industrial pc without reinstalling everything.

    I would be interesting in swapping our industrial PC, for a set up like you have. Did you have any guidance for this?

  • bei uns war der pc von werk aus verbaut. ich habe keine ahnung ob er bei ihnen auch funktioniert. wird mit sicherheit die entwicklungsabteilung von homag abklären müssen.

  • I think the problem is not only with the computer but also with what software version is used. If WoodWop 7.0.51.5 is used even on a faster computer, it is still slow, but if version 7.1.94.15 is used, that slowness is not noticed.
