Mastercam 2019 Router production software is said to provide a suite of programming tools focused on delivering speed, automation, and efficiency for all machining jobs.
From general purpose methods, such as optimized nesting and block drilling, to highly specialized toolpaths like 5-axis trimming, the software is also said to deliver a job setup that is faster and more flexible than previously available.
Expanded CAD-for-CAM tools let users quickly modify and prep solids for cutting, automate hole creation, and smoothly patch holes in complex surface models. New setup sheet tools let users document the process with an unlimited number of captioned images.
The tools in the software provide control over different aspects of 2D machining, such as contouring, drilling and pocketing.
In addition, a key benefit called Feature Based Machining evaluates a part’s features and automatically designs an effective machining strategy, while Automatic Toolpathing (ATP) brings in parts from other design packages to help speed flat panel work.
