2D HighSpeed Chaining Part 3
This video explores Solid Chaining in Mastercams 2D Highspeed Toolpaths. If you would like a copy of the file used in this video and its accompanying exercise file, click the links below! Files are in Mcam2017 format but will work in any newer version as well.
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.
