Created for CNC Programmers using Mastercam to program CNC Milling Machines. This course covers 3D Milling Toolpaths
Mastercam X8 3D Milling
In this course we use the 3D toolpaths available in Mastercam to machine a variety of parts. We explore the combination of Opti-Core, Opti-Area, and Opti-Rest Toolpaths for roughing. For finishing applications, we use, Raster, Waterline, Horizontal Area, Scallop, Pencil, Spiral, Parallel, and Hybrid to highlight different situations for using each path. By the end of this course you will be familiar with the various multi-surface roughing and finishing toolpaths that are available to you in Mastercam. Along with the sample parts provided, after completing this course you should be well on your way to understanding how to machine complex geometry.
