Comparing 3D and Multiaxis Cutting Strategies in Mastercam 3/5

In this video, we will discuss when to use 3D machining and when to use multi-axis machining using the example of cutting simple tool paths. We will demonstrate the use of flowline toolpath in both conventional 3D and multi-axis perspectives. The aim is to convey the advantage of multi-axis machining in improving cycle times on a 5-axis machine by generating larger step overs, without compromising on the surface finish.

Mastering Multiaxis Machining: Curve Drill 5-axis vs. Contour Toolpath 1/5

Curve drill 5-axis, as the name implies, is a multiaxis machining technique that allows for precise drilling or milling along a curved surface, offering exceptional control over complex shapes. Unlike traditional contour milling, which relies on axis substitution, curve drill 5x provides a more flexible and efficient solution for cutting irregular surfaces. This feature allows machinists to wrap a tool around intricate geometries and generate toolpaths that perfectly follow the desired curve, resulting in smooth and accurate machining operations.
