Mastercam Adds Impressive Additions to Chaining and Hole Making

By |2020-07-20T08:25:43-04:00July 20th, 2020|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

If you haven’t already noticed, Mastercam’s already powerful Milling capabilities got another upgrade with recent releases. “The first thing you’ll notice when you open Mastercam 2020 is that we’ve given the chaining dialogues a bit of a facelift. We also changed some of the behaviors so that they work more efficiently,” said Rich Greenhoe, Product Owner at Mastercam. Chaining interfaces are freshened up. Displays are more organized, buttons are updated, and selected chains are easier [...]

What PMI means to the future of integrated CAD/CAM

By |2020-07-17T08:20:04-04:00July 17th, 2020|Categories: Inspection|0 Comments

Since the mid-1980s, when PC based CAD/CAM started its explosion due to the advent of 386 computing technology, our industry has had an ongoing hurdle to overcome . . . How to convey manufacturing and inspection information with the original model design. Historically a manufacturer would provide a job shop with a CAD model and an inspection drawing, increasing the likelihood for inspection drawing interpretation error. Wouldn’t it be ideal if the manufacturing and inspection [...]

Mold Making with Formlabs 3D Printers

By |2020-07-15T08:20:45-04:00July 15th, 2020|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

This post will explore 3D printing for mold making using Formlabs 3D printers. Mold making with desktop 3D printing allows engineers to expand their prototyping toolkit. It opens up a world of production materials, offering the ability to make short-run batches and to test designs before larger-scale production. Three types of molding strategies can be applied with Formlabs. These include injection molding, thermoforming, and casting elastomers. The Form 3 can print inexpensive injection molds to [...]

New Mastercam Chamfer Drill

By |2020-07-13T08:40:27-04:00July 13th, 2020|Categories: Mastercam, Tech Tips|0 Comments

A new toolpath called Mastercam Chamfer Drill has been added to Mastercam 2021. This new Chamfer Drill toolpath allows you to use a chamfer tool, spot drill, or drill to chamfer multiple size holes in a single operation. In practice, this will allow you to use a single spot drill to make the desired root chamfer on many holes in one operation. This new ability will allow you to significantly reduce the number of toolpaths [...]

Metrology Minute – How Do I Choose My First Scanner? – Part 1

By |2020-07-08T08:38:04-04:00July 8th, 2020|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, 3D Scanning|0 Comments

Considering part sizes Notice that the title says first scanner. More than likely, companies who invest in non-contact inspection, scan-based reverse engineering or need to perhaps scan and 3D print objects will own multiple scanners in the course of a career. However, some scanners have the ability to swap out lenses, projectors and the like and can change a scanner’s capabilities by swapping hardware. Just like CNC machinery or 3D Printers, scanners can vary greatly [...]

How to Use Mastercam 2D Highspeed Dynamic Toolpath Air Regions

By |2020-07-06T08:23:42-04:00July 6th, 2020|Categories: Mastercam, Tech Tips|0 Comments

This article will cover using Mastercam Air Regions when cutting open geometry in the 2D Highspeed Dynamic toolpath. With multiple open sides many times programmers will try to select the inside edges of the open Geom. In this example, we will select the geometry along the two walls. This image below illustrates the preview chains utility that shows what the toolpath is calculating to be cut. With the machining region set to cut from the [...]
