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.

Mastercam's Support is Second to None
Mastercam is supported by a worldwide network of dedicated, expert resellers who focus exclusively on ensuring that Mastercam fits your needs. They know the software, know your area, and are there when you need them.

Mastercam also enjoys a large online user community that offers advice, help, tips and tricks to fellow Mastercam programmers.

Mastercam is Dedicated to the Future
As one of the pioneers in PC-based CAD/CAM, Mastercam has a long history of company security and health. As a privately-owned company, we continue to focus exclusively on the needs of NC programmers. And as a CAD/CAM innovator, we'll be here to work with you as you move into the future.

Multiaxis machining can dramatically increase a shop's competitiveness, and Mastercam's multiaxis machining offers a wide range of multiaxis machining strategies - both basic and advanced. Some enhancements to Mastercam's multiaxis machining include features in the Port5ax and Flow5ax toolpaths, TrueSolids 5-axis verify improvements, and much more.

Port5ax and Flow5ax Toolpaths - These toolpaths now include a new feature that allows an overlap or blend to be added at the beginning and end of a toolpath. This feature is very useful in creating better finishes where toolpaths may need to meet from opposite directions. Several options are available for controlling the start and end of a port or flowline multiaxis toolpath, including skipping the first pass, last pass, or both, and blending the entry, exit, or both.

TrueSolid 5-axis Verify - TrueSolids 5-axis Verify is now included in Mastercam's multiaxis machining. TrueSolid 5-axis Verify uses solid modeling technology for toolpath simulation. After verifying a part in TrueSolid mode, you can rotate and magnify the part to more closely check features, surface finish, or scallops.

Smart Interface - Mastercam's advanced multiaxis machining lets you choose what type of project you are doing, and adjusts the interface to show exactly what you need to complete your job.

Other multiaxis features include:

  • General speed improvements
  • Advanced gouge checking and 5-axis safe zone around parts help ensure safe cuts in even the most complex operations
  • Special options for machining cylinder heads and converting probe data to machinable geometries
  • Much more.

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.
