Highlightsof Mastercam X5Mill:

  • Smart Hybrid Finishing - Hybridfinishing blends two efficient cutting techniques into a single toolpath. Thistoolpath evaluates the model shape and smoothly switches between Constant Zcutting and Constant Scallop machining.

  • New surface toolpath - Mastercam's 3D surface high speedOptiRough toolpath is a technique designed to remove large amounts of materialquickly using its milling motion. Large, aggressive cuts are followed by fast,smaller up-cuts.

  • ISCAR Support - Mastercam includes specific support forISCAR's High Efficiency Machining (HEM) tools, ensuring that parts areprogrammed to get the absolute most out of the cutters. Select the appropriate ISCARcutting tool from the library and the optimum information, feeds and speed arecalculated automatically.

  • Multiaxis machining - Mastercam X5 improves multiaxis toolpathspeed and has machining techniques and an easy, workflow-oriented interface.Mastercam lets you choose the basic type of work you're doing usingillustrations, and then gives you a step-by-step process for defining howyou'll cut the part. It also includes a specialized interface for smooth,gouge-free engine head porting.
