Mastercam Mill-Turn makes machining on today's high-powered turning center and full-function machining centers simpler and easier. Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process with intelligent job setups that are keyed to the exact machine in your shop. Utilizing intelligent work plane selection, it's as easy as selecting the spindle and turret you wish to utilize, and creating your toolpaths using Mastercam's proven milling and lathe toolpaths.
Improved Backplot and Verify Utilities
Knowing your results before committing tool to material is crucial. Mastercam gives you several ways to ensure your part will come off the machine exactly as you want it. The Mastercam Simulator offers a single streamlined interface for solid-model verification and toolpath backplotting with a powerful set of analysis tools and information. Mastercam Simulator opens in its own window, letting you work and adjust your project as the tool motion display continues.
New Tool Manager
Mastercam's new Tool Manager provides a whole new way to organize and create your mill and router tooling. It has been built from the ground up as a flexible and efficient way to manage tools and tool holding components and to create tool assemblies that can be used in Mastercam. It also integrates work material and cut parameter data so you can take advantage of a manufacturer's cutting recommendations.
New Lathe Dynamic Rough Toolpath
The Lathe Dynamic Rough toolpath is designed for hard materials cut with button inserts. The dynamic motion allows the toolpath to cut gradually, remain engaged in the material more effectively, and use more of the surface on your insert, extending tool life and increasing the cutting speed.
3D HST Hybrid
The 3D HST Hybrid toolpath now includes a new Optimize cut order check box. This option defines the cut order Mastercam applies to different cutting passes in the toolpath. When selected, Mastercam works in tiers, ordering the toolpath's cutting passes based on proximity and safety.
Mastercam X7 integrates Renishaw's Productivity+ for in-process gauging. This is the ability to use a measuring probe on a machine tool to determine fixture offsets, orientation, and critical dimensions. Probing eliminates the need for tool presetters, expensive fixtures, and manual setting with dial indicators. It allows for machine offsets to be automatically adjusted, even during the machining process, to further enhance the manufacturing process.
Multiaxis Machining Improvements
Oscillating tool motion improves your tool life by not always machining with the same area of the tool. This is especially useful for trimming work. The Curve 5-axis and Swarf 5-axis toolpaths now include an Oscillate option, where you can select either linear or high speed motion as your tool moves through the toolpath. The new Trim to Stock function for Classic multiaxis toolpaths automatically modifies your multiaxis toolpath to reduce air cutting. And, you now have the ability to define individual Safety Zones inside the Classic multiaxis toolpaths so that the tool can safely and efficiently link rapid motions inside those toolpaths.
