Arc Filter in Mastercam’s tricordial toolpaths can greatly enhance the efficiency and performance of your machining operations.
If we’re going to machine a casting, we need to know exactly where it is. And to do that, we’re going to probe it with CIMCO probing. CIMCO probing utilizes a probe tool to take measurements of the rough casting to locate the center of the imperfect shape to offset the toolpath for consistent finished parts. In this part, we measure the angle and overall width of a part. This allows us to set the machine right in the middle of the casting’s geometry.
Mastercam 2024 introduces a game-changing feature that allows users to save and load custom presets for toolpaths. David Ferguson from MLC CAD Systems demonstrates how this feature works in a step-by-step tutorial.
In this video, we will dive into the capabilities of PortExpert, a powerful multiaxis tool designed to automate and simplify machining.
Give your CNC machine intelligent automatic inspection & tooling offsets with CIMCO Probing; Integrated into the Mastercam interface.
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.
This Mastercam video tutorial explains how to use the 5-axis toolkit in Mastercam to automate your toolpaths.
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.
Mastercam 2024 includes a new option for high-speed toolpaths called that more aggressively engages the material with a much shorter ramp.
