CNC Software announces the release of Mastercam X6. Mastercam X6 introduces significant new capabilities, including new stock models, Mastercam Blade Expert, the new OptiRest toolpath, Hybrid Finish Filler Passes, and so much more. 


A precise machining stock model delivers a variety of benefits—viewing and verifying work as it progresses, performing stock model comparisons, and easily choosing existing stock for rest machining. Mastercam gives you the power to create accurate, fully-associative stock models at any point in your machining process.


Mastercam Blade Expert greatly simplifies the toolpath creation process for any multi-bladed parts, including fans, propellers, impellers, turbines, marine screws, and more. There is no limit to the number of blades, splitters, or sub-splitters that can be programmed. Blade Expert includes a variety of powerful and flexible multiaxis roughing strategies. Automatic tool axis control ensures smooth machine motion.


Mastercam’s latest 3D High Speed Toolpath performs Rest Milling operations to remove remaining material with optimized roughing motion. This powerful new toolpath can use the new stock model functionality for defining stock removal areas.


3D high speed Hybrid toolpaths now maintain all of the Z level cuts in the steep areas of your parts while filling in the shallow areas with scallop motion within a single Z section. These toolpaths combine the best of both worlds with waterline (constant Z) motion and scallop where needed. Now you can have both waterline and scallop motion at the same Z section, section after section. The result is a much better finish and more efficient use of the tool.
