Mastercam X from Mastercam/CNC Software (Indianapolis, IN) has been streamlined—featuring powerful, new features that reduce programmer interaction and increase machining flexibility. The software delivers a new, streamlined customizable interface. Specially designed to minimize user interaction while maximizing programming options, the new interface is completely customizable and can be set to each person’s specific preferences. The new “smart” ribbon bar further boosts efficiency and maximizes workspace by appearing only when needed, and displaying tools specific to the job at hand. Capabilities include enhanced multi-axis cutting—helping ensure safer and more accurate five-axis machining. New features include shank and holder collision detection and approach/retract checking. The software also includes a suite of additional tools such as undercut programming, setting negative stock for flat end mills, and improved translators. Additionally, the Pencil Offset Finishing toolpath surface machining technique extends the crisp “cleanup” of a pencil trace toolpath across an entire part by automatically sectioning the part into logical machining areas.
