Multiaxis Toolpath Types

  • Multisurface 5-axis roughing and finishing, including depth cuts, plunge roughing, and flowline machining.
  • Machine 5-axis parts using spiral, zigzag, or one way tool motion.
  • Swarf fanning and swarf machining over multisurface floors keeps the tool edge against the drive surface for a smooth finish.
  • Rail swarf cutting gives you added control by driving the tool along a lower rail.
  • 5-axis circle milling.
  • Minimum tilt control helps prevent tool motion that would cause tool holder collisions.
  • Machine 5-axis curves with independent definitions of tool side angle and lead/lag angle.
  • Create 5-axis contour toolpaths around surface edges for applications such as trimming vacuum-formed parts.
  • Machine toward a single point for smooth tip cutting around an entire part.
  • Easy 4-axis rotary axis and roll die programming, and 5-axis drilling.
  • Wrap a toolpath around a diameter with rotary axis substitution.
  • Create full 5-axis motion from a 3-axis projected toolpath.
  • Special options for machining cylinder heads and converting probe data to machinable geometry.

Tool Motion Control

  • Multiaxis Tool Motion Control
  • Automatic point generator adds greater precision in difficult areas.
  • Complete control over the tool axis, lead/lag, entry/exit, and tilt simplifies even the most difficult multiaxis jobs.
  • Full entry and exit control lets you determine exactly where and how the cutter enters and leaves your part.
  • 3D tool compensation in machine controls and full tapered tool support.
  • Advanced gouge checking and a 5-axis safe zone around the part.
  • tool motion control

Tool Axis Control

  • Shank containment simplifies cutting in confined areas.
  • Powerful axis limits control tool motion between defined angles, ensuring the tool tilt will not violate part or machine tool limits.
  • Easily refine control of your tool axis with a few simple pieces of CAD geometry.

In addition to general-purpose multiaxis machining, Mastercam also has specialized add-ons for multi-bladed parts and cylinder head ports.
