Adjusting Model for Coating in Mastercam


Recommended Posts

I have a complex part with a lot of datums and features with true positions that will needs a growth coating after machining. The model I have is the final part after coating. Is there a good way in Mastercam to "shell" 0.001 off all surfaces of a model to represent the part pre coating so I can program to this model without having to think about how much stock to leave on each feature? The model is too complex to recreate from scratch without a huge amount of work. I have done this in Solidworks in the past but it does not seem to be liking this model. Thanks for your help!
