Advanced Multiaxis Toolpath Conversion to 5-Axis

This Advanced Multiaxis machining strategy, which lets you convert a conventional 3-axis toolpath to a 5-axis toolpath, is fully implemented in Mastercam X2 MR2.

Use the Conversion Link Type option to tell Mastercam whether to use the linking moves from the original toolpath, or to apply the strategies that you define on the Link page.

Choose the Original toolpath button to view a list of all 3-axis mill-type toolpath operations in the current Mastercam file, and select one to convert to 5-axis.

Note: Your original toolpath will not be changed by this operation. Mastercam will create a new 5-axis operation and leave your original toolpath unchanged.
