How to Align Imported Parts in Mastercam – Flat Pattern Skills 

How to Align Imported Parts in Mastercam – Flat Pattern Skills

One of the fundamental challenges often encountered is the alignment of components for manufacturing. When parts don’t have nice square corners, you can use this process to align parts using a bounding box.  Mastercam’s Bounding Box creates the outline for a best-fit stock model that is customizable by material type.   

Moving beyond basic alignment using transform, it is important to understand gnomon alignment and entity transformation. After aligning the gnomon to the selected entities, it is very easy to transform the bounding box and underlying geometry quickly to the WCS.
