Mastercam X7 Multiaxis Features

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. And you get that control in a clear, easy to understand way.
Here is what’s new in Mastercam X7:

Oscillate Motion for Curve and Swarf 5-axis

Oscillating tool motion improves tool life and is useful for trimming work.
Oscillating tool motion improves your tool life by not always machining with the same area of the tool. This motion is particularly useful for trimming work. The Curve 5-axis and Swarf 5-axis toolpaths now include an Oscillate option on the Collision Control page.
You can either select linear (sharp direction changes) or high speed (smooth direction changes) motion as your tool moves through the toolpath.
Independent Safety Zone
Setting a safety zone for Classic Multiaxis toolpaths has been moved from the Machine Group Properties to a new page in the toolpath dialogs. This change provides you with more control for motion in each individual toolpath instead of setting a safety zone that applies to all toolpaths in your part.
You now have more control for motion in each ?individual toolpath.
