Prep files or model from scratch. Quickly get your parts on and off the machine.
Receiving part files from an external source can present unique challenges. There are many things you might need to do, such as repair or hiding a feature or creating an electrode. Perhaps you need to modify, streamline, or fix a complicated mesh. Or, just ensure that your fixtures are properly represented on the part.
Having powerful CAD at your fingertips makes your CAM system that much more effective. Mastercam includes a robust set of modeling tools, from complete wireframe to surface and solid modeling. A true hybrid modeling system, Mastercam lets you create, combine, and machine whichever CAD geometry suits your needs.
Mastercam Design provides a strong set of tools that can be used to prepare models and ensure smooth operation. Focused mesh, surface, solid, and editing tools allow you to quickly get a part off the designer’s desk and into your machining process.
CAD designed for CAM.
Your CAM system will be more efficient if you have powerful CAD available to you. Mastercam Design comes with a wide range of modeling tools. These include wireframes, surface, and solid modeling. Mastercam is a true hybrid modeling system that allows you to create, combine and machine any CAD geometry that suits your needs.
Use your existing CAD files.
Mastercam supports Model Based Definition (MBD), which allows for the preservation of design intent and accepts a variety of file formats. These include IGES and Parasolid®, SAT and ACIS solids, AutoCAD®, DXF, DWG and Inventor™ files, SOLIDWORKS ® (including history tree), Solid Edge, SpaceClaim and STEP, STL, and many more. You can also get add-on translators for Siemens NX and CATIATM.
