CNC Software (Tolland, CT) has released Mastercam X5. Mastercam X5 introduces significant new capabilities, including new dynamic milling techniques, multiaxis machining, Smart Hybrid Finishing, and much more.
Dynamic milling constantly adjusts the toolpath to ensure the most efficient cut possible and allows use of the entire tool flute length, often eliminating the need for multiple depth cuts. New dynamic milling techniques include Dynamic Rest Mill and Dynamic Contour. Dynamic Rest Mill behaves in a manner similar to the current toolpath, only it uses dynamic milling motion instead of core mill or area mill motion for the rest operations. Dynamic Contour uses an intelligent, efficient high speed contouring strategy to remove material along walls. It supports multi-passes and can optionally include finishing passes.
Mastercam’s multiaxis suite has new machining techniques and a new, easy, workflow-oriented interface. Mastercam lets you choose the basic type of work you’re doing using clear illustrations, and then gives you a clear, step-by-step process for defining how you’ll cut the part. Mastercam’s multiaxis machining also includes a new highly specialized interface for smooth, gouge-free engine head porting.
Mastercam’s new 3-D surface high speed OptiRough toolpath is a new technique designed to remove large amounts of material quickly using its successful dynamic milling motion. Large, aggressive cuts are followed by fast, smaller up-cuts, safely delivering a fully roughed part faster than ever.
Hybrid finishing intelligently blends two efficient cutting techniques in a single toolpath. This new toolpath evaluates the model shape and smoothly switches between Constant Z cutting and Constant Scallop machining. The result is a dramatically finer finish with less work.
Mastercam (also MasterCAM) is a suite of Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and CAD/CAM software applications. Founded in MA in 1983, CNC Software, LLC is one of the oldest developers of PC-based computer-aided design / computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software. They are one of the first to introduce CAD/CAM software designed for both machinists and engineers. Mastercam, CNC Software’s main product, started as a 2D CAM system with CAD tools that let machinists design virtual parts on a computer screen and also guided computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tools in the manufacture of parts. Since then, Mastercam has grown into the most widely used CAD/CAM package in the world. CNC Software, LLC is now located in Tolland, Connecticut.
Mastercam users can create and cut parts using one of many supplied machine and control definitions, or they can use Mastercam’s tools to create their own customized definitions.
Mastercam also offers a level of flexibility that allows the integration of 3rd party applications, called C-hooks, to address unique machine or process specific scenarios.
thanks for your introduction, our company still uses Mastercam as CNC programming tool
Compared with the previous Mastercam version, Mastercam X5 function has been very powerful
Mastercam has been used in our mold workshop, no problem!
I am an senior Mastercam engineer, I have used it as Writing CNC program tool for many years! I like it, because it is easy to operate
Mastercam X5 is a very powerful version.
Masterdom X5 is a high cost-performance CAD/CAM software
in our mold company, Master X5 is our CNC programming tool，no problem!
in my opinion, Mastercam is a primary CAD/CAM software
I want to say Mastercam is a very useful CNC Programming tool
in our local place, most companies prefer to use UG or Pro/e
mastercam is an excellent CAD/CAM software, it is very easy to operate.Purchase price is very cheap
Mastercam X5 function has been more and more powerful
Mastercam is still used in our mold shop, it is very useful and easy to operate
