’Twas the Week Before Christmas

A prospect sculptor in Washington state asked Cimtech (the local Mastercam reseller) to help with a project to prove Mastercam is worthy of programming his new, one-of-a-kind, custom-built CNC router.

Komo VR 4x Scultura – Only one built in the world with a 5 x8 ft table – 4axis built in.

Xmas Nativity sculpture – 4 million lines of G-Code for one side!
Irregular wood blank 30 x 30 x 72 inches – weighs 600lbs – supported between centers
Only Mastercam x6 64 bit can handle this – showing roughing cut and finish STL model
This was a brand new user who never ran a machine before and this was his first project, under a deadline to get done for Christmas. The average toolpath per pass was 4 million lines. It took 6 hours of processing on a quad core 64 bit with 8gb RAM, on Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit OS. One other note, the Mastercam Reseller helped out on remote by sending data packs of larger than 10 MB data files.
