Whether you are prepping customer files…
Getting a part file from an outside source can pose unique challenges. You might need to repair a surface, work with a mesh, cap or hide a feature, create an electrode, or just make sure your fixtures are represented on the part. Mastercam includes a powerful set of model prep tools to make sure the process goes smoothly. From robust surface creation and editing to “push-pull” solid model editing, Mastercam gives you the tools to bring a part from the designer’s desk to your machining process, fast.
…or designing your parts from scratch.
Having powerful CAD at your fingertips makes your CAM system that much more effective. Mastercam includes a robust set of modeling tools, from complete wireframe to surface and solid modeling. A true hybrid modeling system, Mastercam lets you create, combine, and machine whichever CAD geometry suits your needs.
