7 Quick Mastercam Tips.

This is what could be the first in a series of videos covering some simple quick tips in Mastercam. Taking some inspiration from the last video, the one where I found out about the partial chaining shortcut, I figured some videos with these quick little tips would be a good idea. So, here we are...

In this first video we look at Auto Hiding the on screen prompt, double clicking to End Selection in functions, editing common parameters, minimizing the ribbon bar and customizing that interface, no geometry selection for the Face Milling toolpath, pinning files in the open menu as well as increasing the MRU list, and finally displaying toolpath generation time for your toolpaths. 

As mentioned in the video, I think I could put out 3 or 4 videos like this if everyone finds these useful. These first seven are just the tip of the iceberg!  Speaking of what you find useful from our videos...we would love your feedback on what you'd like to see covered in these videos. Here's a link to a quick survey and as a tiny bit of gratitude for filling this out, leave your email and we'll enter you into a draw for some sweet camInstructor swag!
