The majority of modern machined parts are produced with milling, where a rotating cutting tool advances into the workpiece to cut away excess stock. Mastercam Mill was developed to provide powerful, stock-aware toolpaths and machining strategies for milling operations. It offers wireframe, surfaces, solids, and mesh design so that virtually any part can be designed and machined without requiring third-party add-ons, although it works seamlessly with specialized tools like Port Expert and Blade Expert. Mastercam [...]
This blog post will take a look at the most cost-effective and accessible Industrial 3D printing platform by 3DGence. Capable of printing high-temp and high-performance materials, this robust solution is geared to accommodate a wide range of demanding industrial applications. The Industry F350 and F421 are based on the traditional FFF printing process, where the extruder heats & deposits a plastic to build your geometry layer by layer. The F350 offers approximately 13” x 13” [...]
This article is reprinted from 3DPrint.com. 3D printers have quietly been transforming production lines at some of the world’s leading manufacturers. Once considered primarily for prototyping; advancements in materials and productivity have made 3D printers a powerful tool for applications beyond prototyping that range from tooling to end-use parts. As these 3D Printers move from R&D onto the shop floor the question that keeps coming up is “Will 3D printing ever replace CNC Machining?” The [...]

CAD/CAM software is a combination of computer-aided design (CAD) software and computer-aided machining (CAM) software. CAD creates the design geometry and then CAM takes the design intent and produces optimum toolpath strategies to subsequently drive the CNC Machine. Most CAD/CAM systems are machine-independent, which means the user is required to pass the intermediate format (Cutter Location, CL Data) through a post processor to produce the correct G-Code for the selected machine. A CNC post processor is a [...]
Thank you to all who attended our 3D printing event that took place at our headquarters in Branchburg, NJ last week. This was the culmination of our "Acceleration of Metal 3D Printing" series which introduced this advanced Additive Technology and its various applications. During yesterday's event, attendees were able to tour our new Metal 3D Printing showroom, interact with parts, and network with other participants. Special thanks to Nate Higgins, Co-founder of FreeFORM who shared [...]
Electric Car Battery Pack The push for electric vehicles (EVs) is nothing new, but few expected the arms race Tesla would spark in the automotive world with their aggressive development. Now, IHS Markit predicts that 25 percent of all passenger vehicles sold worldwide will be electric by 2030. Others predict that even more will be sold by then. Currently, the inventory of automobiles, in general, is less than demand because of the supply [...]
