Mastercam X8 at IMTS
Chicago, IL – IMTS 2014 will feature the latest in the line of powerful Mastercam machining software. Stop by booth # E-3340 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, September 8-13 for a look at Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology, as well as Mastercam X8, the latest release, which introduces significant new capabilities, including a more efficient workflow, improved usability, and so much more.
Dynamic Motion Technology
Mastercam’s groundbreaking Dynamic Motion technology can slash machine time by as much as 75%. And, Dynamic Motion will help you get the most out of any machine in your shop—new or old. Mastercam has included Dynamic Motion for more than five years, and it is expanding its capabilities across the entire Mastercam product line. Speed and efficiencies are built into the software, at no extra cost to our users.
Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology:
-Dramatically extends tool life
-Reduces cycle time
-Saves wear and tear on machines
-Cuts hard materials more easily
-Effective with virtually any machine you own
Mastercam X8 introduces a completely new Solids Workflow that makes constructing and editing solids more intuitive than it’s ever been. Every existing Solids function has been updated to reflect this new workflow. A few examples are a new modern interface that allows you to work in the interface and on screen as needed and a live preview where you can see the results of changes made as you work. Also, Solid Direct Editing has been greatly expanded to make the process of model preparation easier.
Mastercam X8 delivers improved usability and the ability to customize the way you work. Panels in Mastercam, such as the Toolpaths or Solids Manager, can now be automatically hidden to show more of the graphics screen, docked to either side of the Mastercam window, or undocked and placed outside of Mastercam, on a second monitor for example. In addition, Mastercam X8 includes over 750 new icons that provide a consistent color palette that is modern, clean, and colorblind friendly.
Mastercam X8 has many powerful toolpath enhancements, such as:
-All 2D HST toolpaths now support multi-core processing
-New Air Region chaining defines an open side of a closed region where tools can safely enter a region for machining
-3D HST finishing toolpaths have 5-axis motion for automatic collision avoidance
-Stock model now supported in Mastercam Lathe toolpaths
-Mill-Turn now supports Mill Level 1 for twin turret machines that do not require surface machining and supports Drag and Drop for placing tools on locators loaded on turrets
-And so much more.
