Mastercam 2022 on Display at EASTEC

EASTEC show attendees will have access to the latest Mastercam machining software. Mastercam 2022 offers features and enhancements that streamline the entire process, from job set-up to job completion.

According to Mastercam President and CEO Meghan West, "Mastercam is developed by listening to our users and creating solutions for their problems. We adapt to changing needs to ensure that the customer experience is the best it can be as we continue to innovate for improved automation, efficiency, connectivity and precision."

The 3D High Speed Dynamic OptiRough toolpath is now available for all Mill and Router product levels. This allows users to machine large cut depths with a bidirectional cutting strategy to remove the maximum amount of material with the minimum number of stepdowns. Dynamic OptiRough allows users to create a single toolpath to machine a part, instead of creating multiple 2D operations to achieve the same goal. The toolpath is collision aware of the part, and for complex machining, the toolpath can also be aware of the tool holder.

As more shops seek the benefits of a single set-up, multiaxis cutting strategy, Mastercam 2022 adds new techniques and strategies such as the Unified Multiaxis toolpath that allows users to select multiple pieces of input geometry to generate the toolpath pattern. Using those geometry choices, the toolpath picks the best algorithm to calculate the path. Multi-pass on Deburr toolpaths supports flat chamfered and rounded edges, which gives the user added flexibility, allowing the Deburr toolpath to create a quality surface finish on larger chamfered or radiused edges.

"Mastercam 2022 introduces powerful mesh creation and editing capabilities that deliver a new class of modeling tools, including the ability to reconstruct models from scanned data," said a company spokesperson. Being able to directly edit wireframe geometry without interacting with the dialog box speeds up design and modification work. The Overflow UV function allows users to replace multiple surfaces with inconsistent flows with a single surface for flowline toolpaths. Users can also simplify surfaces for general modeling. Overflow UV generates a single unified surface with a desired UV flow on a connected set of surfaces.

A suite of system-wide enhancements helps automate tasks and speed workflow. New automatic region chaining uses a "smart" approach to auto-select logical chained areas. Holemaking from imported solids is faster because Mastercam will now automatically extract appropriate information and pre-populate programming options. Tool imports have been made more intelligent because Mastercam will infer more tool properties from an incoming tool CAD model.
