Mastercam: Next Generation

Description

Mastercam 2018 brings a suite of programming tools focused on delivering speed, automation, and efficiency for all machining jobs. Mastercam 2018 offers 2D/3D Milling features, design improvements, powerful turning and Mill-Turn enhancements, to name a few.

 

Stock awareness has been added to select 2D toolpaths and allows tool motion on the top, bottom, or both values of the stock, providing a safer and more optimized tool motion. The workflow for all 3D High Speed toolpaths has been streamlined and gives you fine control over exactly where to cut and offers smoothing controls to deliver a finer finish.



Mastercam’s Chip Break control prevents problems by allowing you to set length and time conditions, retract, and dwell options. Mill-Turn machine definitions now contain tailstock and quill components tailored to your machine. Exclusive to Mastercam, a set of turning strategies automate toolpath generation and support for Sandvik Coromant CoroTurn Prime inserts and PrimeTurning method. PrimeTurning provides superior metal removal rate, productivity gains of over 50%, and increased tool life in a variety of materials.  

 

CAD functions include Angle Sweep, AutoCursor, Seam Control, and Hole Axis. Angle Swee improves the creation of more complex wireframe functions and AutoCursor offers on-screen sweep and rotate controls. To make Roll and Unroll results easier to predict, Seam Control lets you visually rotate a seam to see how geometry will respond, as well as snap to AutoCursor positions. Hole Axis makes it easier to work with a large number of holes, especially holes with matching diameters that are selected as a group.
