Tool Manager: new eBook exclusive

This step-by-step tutorial teaches you how to create a tool database in Mastercam X7’s new Tool Manager. It begins by creating and editing a new cutting tool and holder. From there, it demonstrates how to correctly assemble them and make further edits. Other topics include how to import one tool or an entire Mastercam library into the new database. You will also learn how to import a .dxf tool file (using examples from Iscar and Sandvik) and then make any geometry modifications necessary to match Mastercam requirements. Available now, eBook format only.

Nesting: new eBook exclusive

The new Nesting tutorial includes a variety of projects that use Nesting options in Mastercam to fit parts onto a sheet of material for best yield. It teaches how Nesting operates on geometry and how you can create and use tabs to assist in holding the nested parts in place. You will also learn how Nesting operates on toolpaths and how you can use the WCS (Work Coordinate System) to set the parts of an assembly in the proper view for machining.
