    This sample is in color as it appears in the eBook version. The print version is printed in greyscale. 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.

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.
