Learn how our router solutions can help solve your manufacturing challenges.
Detect collisions between your stock, tool, and machine components before sending code to your machine tool. Machine Simulation is a safe way to prove out 3-axis, 4-axis, or 5-axis Router toolpaths to make clean, efficient, and accurate programs.
Standard nesting delivers a fast, efficient, and easily identifiable way of nesting. Advanced nesting gives you a variety of additional tools, including TrueShape nesting and nesting in scrap material.
You can create signs, artistic carvings, molds, and more.
Extend tool life with proprietary toolpath strategies that maximize material removal rate and reduce cycle times.
Easily regulate tabs, webs, and cutting specifics for efficient flat panel cutting.
Links you to a variety of top design software to read in entire projects and have them program automatically using presets that you choose.
Automatically take apart your assemblies and move the components to different levels based on part thickness.
Feature Based Machining
Evaluates a part’s features and automatically designs an effective machining strategy.
From direct editing of your solid models to advanced free form surfacing capabilities in Model Prep, Mastercam takes you from an idea to a completed part faster and more efficiently.
