Streamlined Manufacturing Process

CNC Software's Mastercam Mill offers expanded machining flexibility and an increased emphasis on speed and automation. Multiaxis features, 3D enhancements and 2D high-speed toolpaths combine with dozens of additional new enhancements in a software package intended to improve shop floor productivity.

Multiaxis Improvements

Morph, Parallel, Along Curve and Project Curve are no longer individual toolpaths. Instead, users can now find the same functionality inside the Multiaxis Unified toolpath, which allows for more flexibility in cut pattern when programming multiaxis, all within a new advanced feature set and consolidated, easy-to-use interface. A new Feed Rate Control page consolidates the feedrate control options, making the options easier to find and simplifying workflow.

3D Enhancements

The Dynamic OptiRough and Area Roughing toolpaths can now be aware of undercut stock conditions, resulting in improvements to the toolpath motion, including less air cutting. Equal Scallop is now a fully stock-aware, semi-finishing toolpath that now identifies material left in corners and will machine with a single pass or with multiple passes to ease into the material. With the new linking parameters in OptiRough toolpaths, users can control and optimize air cuts, which allows for greater efficiency in roughing toolpaths when transitioning between passes or when in air.

2D Enhancements

The Slot Mill toolpath no longer requires two parallel walls when selecting the machining geometry. Users are now able to select any closed chain. 2D Contour Profile Ramp now supports the Override feedrate option, which allows operators to specify a feedrate for the entry or exit move, allowing them to slow down feedrates as they are engaging material. When users drag and drop items in the Toolpath Hole Definition panel, Mastercam now provides visual cues for the drop location. Also, the drag and drop icon now indicates whether one is dragging a single item or multiple items.

Additional improvements in Mastercam Mill include:

  • The Tool page and Toolpath parameters tab for milling toolpaths have been redesigned to provide a better, user-friendly layout.
  • Automatically Detecting and Including Stock for Z depths is now included for 3D high-speed toolpaths.
  • New Feed Rate Control page for Multiaxis toolpaths consolidates the feedrate control options, making them easier to find and simplifying workflow.
