Intended for the advanced Mastercam user, this book contains new projects demonstrating a variety of Advanced Multiaxis milling applications. The initial tutorials introduce Mastercam’s simplified multiaxis user interface featuring custom application toolpaths, and they later transition to the more advanced interface.
Topics include Tool Box toolpaths such as Projection, Impeller floor surface and Impeller blade swarf finish toolpaths. From the Wireframe toolpath family, you will learn how to use Parallel to multiple curves and Morph between two curves. You will also generate rough and finish toolpaths from the Surface/Solid toolpath family, such as Morph between two surfaces, Parallel cuts, Swarf milling and Parallel to surface.
Additionally, a special project is designed specifically to familiarize you with different Collision control strategies and how to verify the toolpaths using the new machine simulation module that combines toolpath backplot mode and material removal mode with collision detections.
