  1. Version

    The CAD Import & Mill Advanced Toolpaths Training Tutorial consists of projects and accompanying practice exercises. It is intended for intermediate to experienced Mastercam users who are primarily importing 3D geometry from another CAD software package. It is strongly recommended to have a good understanding of 2D machining (provided in the Mill Essentials Training Tutorial, for example) before beginning this book. Each project explains how to prepare the imported geometry using levels, how to check for problems in the geometry and how to move the geometry to set the work zero. All of the parts are designed with machinability in mind and include suggested fixtures and tool setups. Clearly laid out objectives and step previews make it easier than ever to follow along. This book covers Surface Finish and Roughing toolpaths with an emphasis put on the advanced Surface High Speed toolpaths. Other topics include STL Stock creation and its use in solid model verification and how to create and manage Stock models in the Toolpath Manager. Machine Simulation is used to check for collisions between the part, the tool and any of the machine’s components.

    From $39.99

  2. Version

    The CAD Import & Mill Essentials Toolpaths Training Tutorial is intended for anyone looking to understand the ins and outs of Mastercam Mill Essentials toolpaths, while learning the best practices for importing geometry from various CAD software packages. You will learn how to import AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Parasolid files and create the 2D toolpaths for them in Mastercam. Each tutorial walks you through preparing the imported geometry using levels, shows you how to check for problems in the geometry and how to move the geometry to set the work zero. We also cover tool settings, stock setup, drilling, tapping, contouring, pocketing, circle milling, slot milling, 2D High Speed Toolpaths (such as Dynamic Mill, Area Mill, Dynamic Contour, Peel Mill & Blend Mill) and using the WCS in multiple fixture applications.

    From $39.99

  3. Version 1.0

    The tutorial consists of part-oriented tutorials intended for the advanced lathe user that wants to learn how to program lathe parts that include milling operations. You must have the Mastercam Lathe and Mill Software in order to use this tutorial. You will learn how to create the more complex 3D geometry and Advanced C-Axis toolpaths. The tutorial also covers toolpaths that support the Y-axis rotation and examples on how to use the Mill toolpaths on a Lathe with Live Tooling.

  8. Is it me or is anyone else fed up with using mastercam? We have X7 here in the shop and we use it for primarily turning operations and for god sakes I waste more time trying to figure out how to circumvent the minor quirks in this software's ability to function properly. Now I'm have a problem with its stock updater. Im Drilling a 3.5" hole in a 18.675" X 10.5" piece of stainless, then facing an 1" off the 1st side, then coming in with a 2" boring bar and rough turning a lot of stock off the I.D. Its telling me the tool starts embedded in the stock, however, its been faced off, so why doesn't it recognized that? I should not have to start a whole inch off the face of the damn part cutting air. Someone please help. Ill try to include the file 1356 OP20.MCX-7
  9. Hi everyone, i'm starting to use VBScript to manage some lathe operations but i can't find anyway to create lathe toolpaths, I can only work with millng operations. Can you guys help me with some informations or documents you might know? I'm searching through the help menu on the code editor of MX9 but only mill operations appear. Is it possible to work with lathe operations using VBScript on MX9 or is it necessary to work with Chooks and Net-hooks instead. Is this the only option? Thank you.

    A scallop path that avoids flat areas. Just curious if any one else has thought of it benefits Cheers Rick

    programing

    ok i got my drawing and it specifies that "NO CUTTER COMP. centerline programing only" (dimentioned geometry IS the toolpath).......does that mean with the givien information of X's and Y's points, make the program? or should i add the Radius of the cutter and manually calculate a path to those points? tool is a 3/16's End Mill (.1875) (R.0.09375) im making A Cube that has Milled Out Shapes that will Float Free Inside (Circle,Square,X-shape,Diamond,Triangle,and Clover) I need Help Please & Thanks

    Which toolpath should I use?

    Hello all! I have one of those "What toolpath should I use" types of questions. I have a thin wall ITAR part I'm working on that has rigidity issues due to being on a 5-axis out of necessity but forces some pretty long tools and such. Many deep pockets with acute angles and the like. Long story short, I need to be able to drive against surfaces and use thin wall techniques. The pocket in question would be an open pocket, 0.06 walls, and acute angles. Dynamic Core with a thin wall finish pass similar to a Surface Rough Pocket that can be driven against a 3D model would be the perfect toolpath. When using the Surface Rough Pocket I have to go inside out or outside in and this is more of a Waterline open pocket. Since it is ITAR I can't share the file but I will try to work on a dummy file to give a visual. So, is there a toolpath that can rough with dynamic/opti and take 2-3 finish steps for every rough step?

    Machining ULTEM 1000

    Greetings! I'm looking for a bit of input. I've been working with ULTEM 1000 recently and have had some surface finish issues. All the tooling we are currently working with is carbide. I've read that HSS, and diamond tooling, produce a superior surface finish with this material. My employer is willing to purchase a limited amount of new tooling for this next project and I want to get the correct tools. So, here's my question. Would it be better for me to purchase HSS, or diamond tooling? Also, if you've worked with this material before, any tips on feeds and speeds would be appreciated. Looking forward to your thoughts.....and thank you in advance -BC
