A super simple Mastercam Tip and some info on the BIG Event!


Short video today. Just wanted to start getting the work out about The Big Event we are hosting that is coming up in February of 2021. But I also realize you guys will all want some sort of tip in the stick around to the end for this super simple Mastercam Tip that you probably don't know about but will probably use on the daily!

The Big Event is a virtual CAM/CNC conference focused mainly on Mastercam. We have 9 presentations lines up covering everything from basic Mill 2D to advanced 5 Axis, from Education to Industrial, something for everyone. This event is FREE to attend, all you have to do is register. 

The presentations will be anywhere from 20-30 minutes each with question and answer periods to follow. QnA would most likely be 15-30 minutes depending on time.

Be sure to sign up early as space is limited. 

If you would like to present at a future camInstructor BIG Event there is a link at the bottom of the registration page where you can message us.


The Mastercam Tip, we look at Dynamic Transform and toggling between Gnomon Manipulation and Part Manipulation. Typically, this is done by clicking the icon at the lower left of the Dynamic Transform gnomon. However, this can easily be toggled by clicking the CTRL key on your keyboard! This can be a great little time saver for those who use Dynamic Transform a lot!
