Please join us for a free seminar geared toward CNC programmers, engineers, machinists, manufacturing managers and shop floor owners. If you want solutions for machining 5-axis parts to reduce setup time and simplify the machining process, this is for you. Plan to take a long lunch on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 and join us at Morris Great Lakes, 9151 Marshall Road in Cranberry Township, PA. We'll even provide lunch! Top 4 Reasons to Attend Learn how different 5 axis roughing cycles reduce cycle times Learn how to apply different multi-axis milling techniques to reduce setup time and simplify the machining [...]
There is an underutilized feature in Mastercam called Find Level from Geometry, that can be found inside of the Levels Manager. This is a useful tool when you look at part files that have lots of different levels, each with their own geometry, whether it is wireframe, solids, or surface models on the screen. Usually what users do is turn all their levels off and then one by one, turn each one back on to see if they can find which level has their geometry. This tool though allows you to quickly find what level your geometry is on so [...]

Moldmaking with desktop 3D printing allows engineers and designers to get much more functionality from their 3D printer, beyond prototyping alone. Moldmaking opens a world of production materials and provides the ability to produce short-run batches and test mold designs prior to committing to expensive tooling. Download an educational White Paper from Formlabs to learn about mold making strategies including injection molding, thermoforming and casting elastomers. Just complete the form below and you will gain access to the White Paper.
This post is Part 3 of the topic: Leverage and import organic shapes into CAD and today we will introduce you to Generative Design. In previous posts, we briefly discussed the value of having the ability to capture organic shapes for use in CAD design. To illustrate this process, scanned our engineer’s hand and then integrated that scan into CAD in order to design a rotating Nespresso Pod holder. Now, we will finalize the CAD design phase by using Fusion's Generative Design, to assist us during the model creation process. By now, the Nespresso pod holder is almost complete. The [...]

Today we’re going to cover a new enhancement to the Divide/Delete tool in Mastercam 2019. If you were to use the Divide/Delete tool in the past, you had to manually select the pieces of wireframe that you didn’t want to keep. While you can still individually select each piece of geometry that you want to delete with this feature, this can be a time-consuming and cumbersome process. Now, you can trim your geometry efficiently with the outline of our cursor. To do this, start by going to go to the Wireframe tab, on the right side of the Modify group, [...]
