Mastercam X7 Preview 3: New Lathe Dynamic Rough Toolpath
Shops have similar goals when programming turning operations as they do when programming milling toolpaths: reduce cutting time and increase tool life.
Mastercam X7 addresses this need with the new lathe Dynamic Rough toolpath. This strategy is designed for hard materials cut with button inserts. The dynamic motion allows the toolpath to cut gradually, remain engaged in the material more effectively, and use more of the surface on your insert, extending tool life and increasing the cutting speed.
