CNC Software’s (West Springfield, MA) Mastercam® CAD/CAM software. Attendees will get the first look at Mastercam’s new Feature Based Machining (FBM) as well as the Mastercam in SolidWorks add-in. Mastercam’s new Feature Based Machining automates the machining process. It automatically evaluates a part and programs pockets, contours, bosses and drilling routines with minimal user input. Mastercam’s FBM will be part of the Mastercam X3 release, later this year. Mastercam in SolidWorks is fully integrated CAM that runs seamlessly in SolidWorks. SolidWorks users can now program their parts for machining directly within SolidWorks using Mastercam’s toolpaths and machining strategies. Mastercam in SolidWorks will be available after the release of Mastercam X3. Mastercam X2 features include: powerful multi-axis enhancements included in the advanced multiaxis toolpaths; Peel Milling toolpath moves the tool in and “peels” away material, layer by layer; Operations Manager pane floats to a different area of the graphics window or to a separate screen when working with dual monitors; Create Boundary function greatly expands Mastercam’s toolpath boundary creation, restricting the toolpaths to highly specific areas; common edge optimization in nesting.
