Highspeed Chaining Part 4

2D HighSpeed Chaining Part 4

This video continues exploring the  Solid Chaining in Mastercams 2D Highspeed Toolpaths. Here we look at a different chaining technique to cut the same part in the previous video. 

 

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.

The final video in this series has not been released into the blog at this point. The final video looks into the advantages of Solid Chaining and the use of Model Prep. Once that video is released, the link will be added.

If you missed the first few videos in this series, you should have a look them before continuing on with the rest. Here is a link to the start of the series...
