Mastercam 2018 v20.0.21885.0 Update 3 (x64) | Size: 1.78 GB
CNC Software Inc., a dedicated to providing state-of-the-art software tools for CAD/CAM manufacturing markets, announced the release of Mastercam, is a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software program used by manufacturing or machine technology professionals, such as machinists and CNC programmers.
Mastercam is a type of software used by professionals in the manufacturing industry. It is similar to other computer-aided design (CAD) programs, like AutoCAD. This software helps to produce mechanical drawings of machine parts, learn how to operate CNC lathes and mills and create 3-dimensional wire frame models.
Developed by CNC Software, Inc., Mastercam is Windows-based CAD/CAM software for 2- through 5-axis routing, milling and turning, 2- and 4-axis wire EDM, 2D and 3D design, surface and solid modeling, artistic relief cutting, and Swiss machining. The most powerful machining software yet - Mastercam , introduces many significant new capabilities, including the new Mill-Turn product and much more.
CNC Software Inc. is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art software tools for CAD/CAM manufacturing markets. Our goal is to provide superior software products based on our users' needs to solve simple to complex design and machining problems.
Mastercam 's powerful tools are designed for the most important job there is - your. From CAD created with an eye to toward the NC programmer to advances in cutter path creation, Mastercam helps ensure you make the most of your shop.
Here are som key Features of "Mastercam":
CAD for CAM Programmers
New tools to get your parts prepped fast.
Expanded Dynamic Motion
Mastercam's signature technology is more efficient than ever.
Refined Machining, Made Easy
New tools make your jobs faster, easier and ensure the results you want.
Better Ways to See Your Work
Push-pull modeling and editing, feature identification and editing, and more.
Powerful Mill-Turn additions
Crisper simulation and full fixture support.
More Power for your CAM Investment
Several powerful add-on tools are now included at no extra charge.
This release features new functionality focused on delivering speed and efficiency to your machining jobs.
Stock awareness has been added to select 2D toolpaths. The tool motion can now use the top, bottom, or both values of the stock, and all the linking parameters can be set to adapt to changing stock values. Add or remove finish cuts, based on the number of rough depth cuts specified on the Depth Cuts page. The workflow for all 3D High Speed toolpaths has been streamlined. Users can assign variable stock to leave values on its walls and floors.
Chip Break is now available for Face and Finish Toolpaths when chip breaks occur. Mill-Turn machine definitions now contain tailstock and quill components. The new Tailstock Operation allows you to define how the machine's tailstock is used.
Angle Sweep improves the creation of more complex wireframe functions and when creating or editing primitives, there are now on-screen sweep and rotate controls which can snap to the AutoCursor positions of existing entities. To make Roll and Unroll results easier to predict, Seam Control lets you visually rotate a seam to see how geometry will respond, as well as snap to AutoCursor positions. Hole Axis makes it easier to work with a large number of holes.
Also available in the Mastercam 2018 release are the following features:
- A new set of turning strategies that automate toolpath generation and support for Sandvik Coromant CoroTurn Prime inserts and PrimeTurning method.
- My Mastercam gives access to your profile, Mastercam's social media outlets, your Reseller information and the Mastercam Forum.
Streamlined workflow with improved plane management, level and geometry control, toolpath analysis and more.
- Model Prep and Solid Model enhancements such as Multiple Undo/Redo for up to 25 functions and Solid Sweep has more options and controls than ever.
- The Collision Control and the Multiaxis Link Safety Zone pages for Multiaxis toolpaths have been redesigned .
- Common direction has been added to the Tool Axis Control page for Multiaxis toolpaths and keeps the tool at a uniform tilt angle to reduce tool and machine motion.
