Mastercam 2024 doesn't just bring new features to the table—it fundamentally
redefines what you can achieve in your daily operations. Let's delve into the top five enhancements that will supercharge your productivity and simplify your workflow.
Elevate Your Craft with Advanced B-Axis Contouring Don't just machine—master your craft. The new B-Axis Contour Turning operation introduces three pivotal updates: customisable tool axis vectors, editable insert areas, and a refined stock adjustment function. These cutting-edge enhancements equip you with unprecedented in-process control, allowing for a far superior grasp of B-axis head movements right within the toolpath interface.
Unlock Seamless Mill-Turn Operations with Turret-Mounted Angled Milling Heads Say goodbye to cumbersome workarounds. Now you can utilise turret-mounted angled milling heads in your Mill-Turn operations. The result? Effortlessly generate toolpaths on tilted planes, boosting both your milling and turning efficiencies within the Mill-Turn suite.
Streamline Your Workflow with Intelligent Process Hole Enhancements The Process Hole toolpath now makes your life easier by applying predefined processes directly to a part's solid hole features. Comprising a sequence of one or more holemaking operations from your operations library, this feature lets you import relevant processes into your current part file. Achieve optimal time and cost savings, all while maintaining the integrity of your established procedures.
Optimise Your Toolpath Motion with Refined Undercut Detection First unveiled in Mastercam 2023 for Dynamic OptiRough and Area Roughing (3D), waterline toolpaths can now recognise undercut stock conditions. This refines your toolpath motion and eliminates unnecessary air cutting. The setting, previously known as 'Detect undercut stock,' has been renamed to 'Detect break through stock,' offering you more precision in your machining tasks.
Elevate Tool Longevity and Performance with Dynamic Motion The Dynamic Mill, Face, and Dynamic OptiRough toolpaths now include a brand-new Maximum Engagement feature located on the Cut Parameters page. By selecting this, you’ll produce more balanced chip sizes, minimise small chip production, and expedite stepover rates. These improvements extend tool life, reduce vibrations, better manage heat dispersion, promote efficient chip evacuation, and diminish machine wear and tear.
These transformative upgrades in Mastercam 2024 are set to redefine your operational landscape, making your life easier and your outcomes more precise.
