Mastercam 2017 Mill
Mastercam 2017 Mill offers expanded machining flexibility and an increased emphasis on speed and automation. 2D High Speed Toolpaths, 3D enhancements, and Multiaxis features combine with dozens of additional new enhancements in a package intended to improve shop floor productivity.
Here are some of the most significant highlights and new functionality in Mastercam 2017 Mill:
2D High Speed Toolpaths
In an effort to streamline and simplify workflow, Mastercam 2017 supports Region Chaining Preview which allows you to see your machining, air, and containment regions. Mastercam 2017 also builds on its already efficient and powerful Dynamic Motion engine, and introduces micro lifts which use a line-of-sight approach to move the tool where it needs to go through unobstructed areas. Reposition moves are now more efficient, less complex, and travel a shorter distance which creates smaller file sizes and improves cycle times at the machine.
Additional powerful tools in Mastercam 2017 Mill include:
- Toolpath Preview is now available for select 2D High Speed Toolpaths in the graphics window before closing and generating or regenerating the toolpath.
- Point and lines selected for tool axis control will now be associated with the toolpaths in which they are used.
- Point sorting is now available for Multiaxis Drill and Circle Mill toolpaths.
