This software includes many new features and advancements to increase machining productivity and reduce overall production costs with faster and more flexible multi-axis improvements, developments in turning and turning-related applications, advances in speed, safety, and much more.
As more and more shops continue to rely on streamlined mult-iaxis cutting for single-setup precision, Mastercam 2021 adds new techniques and strategies. Expanded Multiaxis Pocketing combines efficient pocket cutting with a focus on finishing with Accelerated Finish tools, automatically maintaining the correct tool contact within defined parameters. Mastercam now gives you the ability to analyze and modify the UV direction on surface models, expanding the power and flexibility of multiaxis flowline milling toolpaths. The new 3+2 Automatic Roughing toolpath automatically makes multiplane 3-axis roughing toolpaths by evaluating the model and stock, creating a cut, calculating what remains, and repeating the process until roughing is complete.
For turning and turning-related applications, Mastercam 2021 expands the support for modeling chucks and chuck jaws; you can now define them by selecting a solid model. Mastercam Mill-Turn supports collet chucks as individual component types which greatly expands the range of machines that can be directly supported. Mill-Turn Simulation has been added to the Mastercam Simulator. And, our Swiss machining solutions combine Mastercam Mill and Mastercam Lathe with specialized post processors. This adds machine-specific controls inside the Mastercam interface, delivering accurate G-code for a wide variety of Swiss machines.
A new toolpath in Mastercam 2021, Advanced Drill, is a customizable multi-segment drill cycle that is useful for spot drilling, deep hole drilling, and back spot facing and each segment of the drill cycle can be defined and customized. And, when using tools with a tip angle, the new Chamfer Drill toolpath chamfers holes after calculating the correct depth based on the desired width or depth, and lets you select holes of different diameters or sizes, or that lie in different planes, and machines them in a single operation with a single tool. When creating a bounding box in Mastercam 2021, the new Wrap option allows you to create the smallest bounding box possible. The new Check Tool Reach function lets you to check your tool and holder against the selected model geometry to view where the tool can and cannot reach.
These advancements have been made in direct response to the needs of the global manufacturing community. You can visit whatsnew.mastercam.com to learn about new features in Mastercam 2021 and view related videos.
