Upgrading Mastercam Mill 2D to Mill 3D

By |2023-02-06T08:26:17-05:00February 6th, 2023|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

This blog post will outline the benefits of upgrading a Mastercam 2D Mill or Router seat to Mastercam 3D Mill or Router. There are many shops that only have the capability of machining using 3-axis. In recent years, as machines get older and are replaced or as shops expand, some are looking to add some form of multi-axis machine. We are going to look at moving directly from 3-axis machinery to 5-axis machinery. Since most [...]

Choosing the Right Material for Different CNC Machining Applications

By |2023-01-30T08:26:38-05:00January 30th, 2023|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

CNC machining refers to the process of using a computer numerical controlled machine to systematically manufacture pre-designed parts by cutting stock material in a specific way. These days, that stock material can be any one of a number of pure metals, metal alloys, or even plastics. Determining which of the many material options to use can be tricky. In this blog, we will delve into some of the features of the most commonly used materials [...]

CNC Milling vs CNC Lathe – Which Has More Profitable Uses?

By |2023-01-09T08:44:31-05:00January 9th, 2023|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

For a small shop or even an individual taking their first step into CNC machining, the initial cost is one of the most important factors in decision-making. When that decision is which CNC machining unit to buy – a milling machine or a lathe – it pays to know which one will be more profitable in the long run. What is milling? Milling is a type of subtractive manufacturing, which means it removes material from [...]

CNC Milling vs. Manual Milling

By |2022-12-19T08:33:04-05:00December 19th, 2022|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

What are the benefits of CNC milling over manual milling? Milling is a manufacturing process in which a part is made by the removal of material around it, specifically by advancing a cutting tool into stock material to cut away the excess. In the vast majority of milling applications, the cutting tool rotates at incredibly fast speeds. It can be used to shave parts down, drill or tap holes, and more. Milling is one of [...]

CAM Automation Tricks You Need to Know

By |2022-12-12T08:27:44-05:00December 12th, 2022|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

The irony in automation is that it takes a lot of creativity to automate any process, but at the same time any automated process has zero inherent creativity – it is just a mindless repetition of preselected steps. While it is good for the process itself to be uncreative (no one wants their machining to go off-script), programmers themselves must often stretch their imaginations when finding ways to automate and save time. Here are a [...]

Mastercam Lathe Essential Features

By |2022-11-28T08:25:25-05:00November 28th, 2022|Categories: Mastercam|0 Comments

Mastercam Lathe generates the best G-code possible to direct a CNC turning machine. It takes a 3D CAD model of a part, applies toolpaths to it to create a machining plan, and then outputs that information to the CNC lathe. The Mastercam Lathe product does this and more. Its optimized, stock-aware toolpaths can be applied to a program with minimal time and mouse miles. It also offers a customizable tool library where programmers can digitally [...]
