Finally! The first post of 2020. Not going to spend time looking back at 2019, just looking ahead at whats planned so far for 2020 from CamInstructor. Some double double top secret info in here....shhh!
The often forgotten toolpaths in Mastercam, Wireframe Toolpaths. These paths are able to cut 3D forms very quickly with extremely clean gcode. Another 'tool' you need to have in your programming pocket.
Modeling up the new Tesla Cybertruck in Mastercam! This ground breaking (window breaking too) new design is awesome, just couldn't resist playing around with it!
With our CamInstructor Certification for Mastercam, I end up marking a lot of tests in Mastercam. This is by far the most common 'mistake' I see on these tests.
Taken from one of our new 5 Axis Lessons, this video takes you through the sights and sounds of a simple setup on a Haas UMC-750 using a 5th Axis dovetail vise. Keep an eye out for a complete step by step lesson that covers setting this part up on the machine.
Here is an introduction to one of our new Mastercam 5-Axis Lessons. There is also a link to access this lesson for FREE!
This video takes a look at the new Mastercam 2020 and compares it to an older version, Mastercam X9. Mastercam X9 is still a popular release since it was the last version on the old interface. This video looks at some of the new chaining options in 2020 and compares them against X9.
This video takes a look at the new Mastercam 2020 and compares it to an older version, Mastercam X3. Mastercam X3 was released in 2008 so it's not a fair comparison but a fun look at how far things have come in the last 11 years.
