Static tools in Mastercam?


Recommended Posts

What are some of the other peoples thoughts about this topic?


Does anyone know of a CAM system that does this in the Verification and Simulation?

I have used Finish in Lathe and Point along with Mill 3D contour. In Mill 3D Contour and Point toolpath.


How do you normally program it?


I think there are much bigger fish to fry in the grand scheme of things, but trying to send something to someone showing a finished part that does not look like the finished part makes it hard for them to feel comfortable I am not really crazy.


I put this below 100's things on the needs to be done list for Mastercam, but maybe some others can shed some different light on this subject that maybe I am not seeing.


Thanks in advance for comments suggestion or ideas.

I see the need but, I'm not sure if  its high on the list as of being a reality with any cam vendor as a new feature. I would love to see it on both mills and lathe, I think it would be a plus and a good selling point for whoever doses it first in the industry.
