Mastercam X5 Sneak Preview 2: Efficient “OptiRough”
Dynamic milling constantly adjusts the toolpath to ensure the most efficient cut possible and allows use of the entire tool flute length, often eliminating the need for multiple depth cuts. New dynamic milling techniques include Dynamic Rest Mill and Dynamic Contour. Dynamic Rest Mill behaves in a manner similar to the current toolpath, only it uses dynamic milling motion instead of core mill or area mill motion for the rest operations. Dynamic Contour uses an intelligent, efficient, high speed contouring strategy to remove material along walls. It respects the user’s stepover, taking extra passes where necessary, and can optionally include finishing passes. Dynamic milling includes additional specific support for ISCAR’s High Efficiency Machining tools, ensuring that parts are programmed to get the absolute most out of the cutters.
