    Efficient toolpath nesting

    Thanks for the reply! I will definitely look into that. I guess the only thing I can really do is nest the geometry and very carefully chain the toolpaths then? I appreciate the help!
  2. Hi all. I'm learning how to use Mastercam for a Wire EDM, and I'm trying to learn how to use the nesting toolpaths function efficiently. I guess my question is this: Is there a way to nest your toolpaths so that all of the thread points start outside of the stock? In other words, is there a way I can avoid putting in pre-drilled holes when using this feature? I would like to be able to nest toolpaths in a way that the Wire EDM threads at a(n) point/origin outside of the stock and is able to guide/maneuver around all the different nested toolpath geometry. I'm trying to avoid predrilled holes as much as possible to maintain the integrity of the stock infrastructure. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
