Why choose Mastercam?

Mastercam is the Industry Standard

The most recent analysis of CAM software seats produced by CIMdata, Inc. shows that CNC Software's Mastercam is the world's most widely-used CAM software. With almost 136,000 installed seats, Mastercam has more than twice the installed base of the closest competitor.

What does this mean for you? It means that when you choose Mastercam, you're using innovative CAM software that has helped more shops achieve success than any other. It also means that skilled Mastercam users are much easier to find.

A Focus on Flexibility and Ease of Use

Whether your shop gets files from an outside source or designs them in-house, modeling tools are an essential element in prepping a file for machining. Mastercam X4 Design delivers efficient new tools to the entire Mastercam product line.

Dynamic Planes

Mastercam X4 offers a quick way to define your construction planes, tool planes, and work coordinate system. You can now easily define the desired plane using an interactive graphical gnomon to establish the plane's origin and orientation.

Xform Dynamic

Translate and rotate geometry in a single, easy to use function. The control is right on the screen along with your geometry.

Wireframe Feature Recognition in Chaining

You only need to chain an example of the geometry that you want to use, click a button, and Mastercam automatically finds and chains all other occurrences of the geometry.

Trimming Visual Cues

To help you predict the result when working with the Trim, Extend, and Break function, Mastercam X4 provides visual cues so you can see what will happen before selecting the transformed entity.

Viewsheet Improvements

You can save every option on the status bar (except for Groups) as part of a Viewsheet.

As an independent software vendor partner with Dell, Mastercam receives and tests their latest hardware offerings to make sure that they are compatible with Mastercam. Once a system is received, Mastercam is installed and we run tests to insure the hardware platform and its individual components work without error. By eliminating the issue of incompatibility, both software and hardware vendors help reduce troubleshooting and resolution. If the system meets our approval, it is deemed "certified" and then listed on Dell's web page as a supported and recommended system from running Mastercam.
