We are very excited and proud to announce that we have been named #1 Mastercam Reseller in the world. We would just like to thank our entire customer base for helping us to make this possible.
Elastic Resin can simulate molded silicone, making it possible to print soft, resilient prototypes right on the desktop.
A letter from our CEO As we reset the business year and pick ourselves off of the floor I reflect on the year gone by. Cimquest went thru a very challenging but necessary transition over the past 17 months which still, in part, continues today. We embarked on a journey leaving the safety of Stratasys and the valued business relationships with both our customers and vendor. This transition meant losing more than half of our revenue. However, in the process, we acquired additional valued customers utilizing the Mastercam CNC programming software. While the net of this changed still left us [...]
Formlabs just announced their latest new engineering resin. This soft engineering resin (50A Shore durometer) is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone that need to bend, stretch and compress. Due to its high elongation (160%) and good tear strength (19.1kN/m) it will hold up to repeated cycles without tearing. Elastic resin is also translucent which is ideal for healthcare and medical applications where visual simulation is required.

The feature called Mask on Arc in Mastercam for Solidworks is a familiar option in the standalone version of Mastercam. It provides a quick selection process for hole making toolpaths to help accelerate programming. It can quickly differentiate between similar sizes and select multiple locations. In this example, we have a combination of sketched and fully defined features visible in the part file. Let’s first use the circles drawn in these sketches. If you call a hole making function, such as drill, you will see the checkbox on the point manager to activate the masking. Once you check the box, [...]
We offer a variety of Mastercam training classes in our various Cimquest offices. These classes run year round so you can always find just what you need, where you need it. Why not start the New Year off by making plans to take some training? This will ensure that you and your programmers are up to speed and are best utilizing all the latest Mastercam functionality. Here are the classes and locations that are running for the rest of this month, as well as next month. You can always check our website for a complete list of upcoming classes. Mill [...]
Import Curves in Moldex3D for Quick Venting Setting Moldex3D’s pre-processing tools enable you to set venting. The main purpose of venting is to allow the air trapped during the injection molding process to escape and prevent surface defects, such as burning, flash, short shots and air traps, and severe volume shrinkage. Importing curves in Moldex3D’s venting setting eliminates the need for manually selecting the venting boundary. It provides you with a more streamlined workflow, reducing time and effort. It only requires the following simple steps to complete the vent setting: Create venting curves → Set Moldex3D project → Set Computation [...]
