Shot Peen Full Round Deburr – Tips & Tricks for the Mastercam Mill Programmer
When you need to add a fully rounded edge finish to part geometry it can be difficult to program multiple passes of a spherical mill, especially on parts with non-planar edges. The deburr toolpath has been enhanced with the 2022 release of Mastercam to include the ability to create full-round edge breaks that may also be known as a Shot Peen deburr. Use a spherical tool and post in either 3- or 5-axis that can meet any edge finish specification.
