Attendees will get a first look at Mastercam X5 from CNC Software, Inc. (Tolland, CT), which will be displayed during IMTS.

Attendees will get a first look at Mastercam X5 from CNC Software, Inc. (Tolland, CT), which will be displayed during IMTS. Features include:

  • Dynamic milling constantly adjusts the toolpath to ensure the most efficient cut possible and allows use of the entire tool flute length, often eliminating the need for multiple depth cuts.

  • Mastercam’s multiaxis suite has new machining techniques and a new, easy, workflow-oriented interface. Mastercam lets you choose the basic type of work you’re doing using clear illustrations, and then gives you a clear, step-by-step process for defining how you’ll cut the part.

  • Mastercam’s new 3-D surface high speed OptiRough toolpath is a new technique designed to remove large amounts of material quickly using its successful dynamic milling motion.

  • Hybrid finishing intelligently blends two efficient cutting techniques in a single toolpath.
