Mastercam Multiaxis

Multiaxis machining can dramatically increase a shop’s competitiveness, and Mastercam’s multiaxis add-on offers a wide range of multiaxis machining strategies—both basic and advanced. With Mastercam, you have complete control over the three crucial elements of multiaxis machining: toolpath types, tool motion, and tool axis.

Streamlined multiaxis programming tools make projects easier than ever before. With features from multisurface 5-axis roughing and swarf fanning, to easy 4-axis rotary axis and roll die programming, Mastercam ensures accurate cuts and fast turnaround on even the toughest jobs.

Key Features

  • Multisurface 5-axis roughing and finishing, including depth cuts, plunge roughing, and flowline machining.
  • 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.
  • Axis limits control tool motion between defined angles, ensuring the tool tilt will not violate part or machine tool limits.
  • Advanced gouge-checking and a 5-axis safe zone around the part help ensure safe cuts in even the most complex operations.
  • Generates 5-axis code that can run any CNC machine.
  • The Blade Expert add-on is specifically designed to generate the necessary toolpaths for many of the different multi-blade configurations.
  • The Port Expert add-on creates accurate, efficient head porting toolpaths on port surface or solid data.
