    Mastercam Celebrates their 35th Anniversary!

    eMastercam.com would like to congratulate Mastercam on their 35th Anniversary! The year 2018 marks the 35th anniversary of CNC Software, Inc., developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software. In 1983, two brothers, Mark and Jack Summers, came up with a new concept for programming CNC (Computer-Numerical-Control) machine tools. A third brother, Brian Summers, soon joined and together they developed a PC-based CAD/CAM software package that laid the foundation for what would be Mastercam, the world’s most widely used CAD/CAM software. * “It started out as a simple idea,” says Chairman Mark Summers. “I was a machinist. My brother was a mathematician. We combined our experience to put what was out of reach for most shops – NC programming software – right onto their desktops.” In the 35 years that followed, they have advanced dozens of important new technologies for those shops, including “smart” toolpaths, hybrid machining, mill-turn, multiaxis, their proprietary Dynamic Motion technology, as well as basic packages for milling, turning, and wire EDM. All of this couldn’t be possible without the valuable feedback from the industry and from what’s most important to CNC Software, the user base. In addition to manufacturers, the company has focused on selling and supporting Mastercam in the education sector since its inception. They first called the software program “Meghan,” named after Mark Summers’ eldest daughter, and then changed to “Mastercam” as a clearer descriptive of the software’s primary function. Today, Meghan is the CEO and Mastercam is the most widely used CAD/CAM software in the world, closing in on almost a quarter million installations at the end of 2017. “Mastercam users help drive our innovation,” says CEO Meghan West. “We’re in constant contact with shops, machine tool builders, educators, tooling suppliers, and they all help us focus on what shops need the most now and in the future, so we can deliver.” “One of the biggest reasons for our success is our global dealer network – probably the largest and most experienced in the CAM industry,” continues West. “They are true partners with our customers, offering advice, training, and applications experience to Mastercam users around the world. We’re also extremely proud to be the number one CAD/CAM program being taught by technology teachers in schools, colleges, and universities. Helping to train the next generation of skilled manufacturing personnel is an important mission of ours.” About Mastercam’s Global Headquarters Shortly after CNC Software started in Massachusetts, the company moved its base of operations to an office in Vernon, Connecticut. After a brief move to an industrial park, CNC Software built corporate headquarters in Tolland, Connecticut. When it outgrew that space, the Summers established the company’s corporate headquarters and training facility in a new, 38,000 sq. ft. building in the same town. The building was thoughtfully designed as a world-class “green” facility and built for expandability and environmental friendliness. In 2007, ground broke for a 12,000 sq. ft. addition to house a fully functioning Manufacturing Lab with advanced equipment for Mastercam product research and development. * According to CIMdata, Inc.
  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.
  3. Version 1.0.0

    This tutorial includes a variety of projects that are using Nesting options in Mastercam to fit parts onto a sheet of material for best yield. You will learn how Nesting operates on geometry and how you can create and use tabs to assist in holding down the nested parts. You will also learn how Nesting operates on toolpaths and how you can use WCS (Work Coordinate System) to set the parts of an assembly in the proper view for machining.

    Nesting operations from both sides

    Hi guys, Can somebody help me with my issue? I need to nest toolpath from sveral files with defined toolpaths. I have some parts where are defined the toolpaths from both sides. But the toolpaths are in two operation groups. When I import the file as a cluste the operations are splited in two clusters. I am not able to join both together in one part. I have checked previous versions and it works well in X6. From X7 the same function "Add operations cluster from files" behaves a different way. Is there a setting for this? Any idea? Thanks.

    Labeling Nested Parts

    I am using the nesting command to get many different part on to one sheet as efficiently as possible. the problem i am running into is that several of the sheets have parts that are very similar, and after they are cut out it will be hard to identify which part is which. I would like to set up the machine to go through and write with a marker an identification number before the part is cut out. The problem i am running into is when I nest the writing command (either engraving or contour) with the contour command for the larger part, the writing command doesn't stay inside of the part, and is just nested on its own. any advice on how i can end up with labeled nested parts?
  11. Good morning everyone. I've got a problem that I hope someone can help me with. I'm running version 9.1 on XP and the darn thing has a mind of it's own when it comes to nesting parts. I'll give grain direction to my parts, but on a lot of the parts it will flip them the opposite way so I have to manually translate, rotate etc and it takes forever. The older computer we had Mastercam on never had these problems, but this is a newer computer that had Windows 7 on it ( i think 64 bit version, but I'm not sure. I'm not to savvy on that stuff as the guy who worked here before me set it all up) that is now running XP and I'm wondering if that is the conflict. It's also a Hewlett Packard if that makes a difference.......
