At Eastec, Mastercam/CNC Software Inc. (West Springfield, MA) will showcase the Mastercam X2’s Maintenance Release (MR1) with improved toolpaths for high-speed machining, multi-axis enhancements, and much more. The high-speed machining pencil toolpath has been enhanced to provide much smoother motion with fewer retracts when used with rest material. The software also can calculate the appropriate number of offset passes needed, based on tool diameter. Trochoidal motion in high-speed toolpaths assists with the machining of harder materials. Trochoidal motion maintains an acceptable tool load, allowing feeds and speeds programming to be reliable. In MR1, the software gives the user the ability to control when and how the trochoidal motion occurs in a toolpath.
