Mastercam Dynamic Milling - Chaining Part 1

3/20/19 6:00 AM / by camInstructor Mike

This is video one in a series of videos covering the chaining options and strategies used in the 2D Highspeed toolpaths. These strategies differ from those used in the conventional 2D toolpaths.

2D HighSpeed Chaining Part 1

This first video dives deep into the Machining Regions, Machining Region Strategies, and the Open Stock Extension options in Mastercams 2D Highspeed Toolpaths.

This video is part of a course we offer covering the 2D HighSpeed toolpaths in their entirety.  The course covers evertything from chaining, all of the toolpath types and their use, toolpath filtering, stock settings, speeds and feeds, and there are many exercise files as well so you can test out your newly learnt skills.

This first group of videos we've released into the blog cover chaining. The chaining used in the highspeed toolpaths differ from those used in the conventional toolpaths. Here, you need to define different areas of the toolpath. Once done correctly, the toolpaths themselves will figure out the cutting area. With some of this interpretation left to the software, you can see it is very important we define our area correctly. Once you've completed this video series, you can be confident in your chaining abilities to tackle any part thrown at you.

To continue on with this video series, here is a link to the second video in the chaining section of this course...
