Using Mastercam X6 to its Fullest #4 –Stock Model-Based Rest Milling

Over the next several weeks we’ll be revisiting some of the new tools in Mastercam X6. This week we’ll focus on a more efficient rest machining.

Mastercam X6 3D “OptiRest” Rest Milling

This week we’ll take a look at one of the toolpaths that directly benefits from the new Mastercam X6 stock model. “OptiRest” is our latest 3D high speed toolpath – it performs rest rough milling operations to remove stock left from roughing passes with larger cutters. This powerful new toolpath compares the in-process stock model to the intended shape to create an optimized dynamic milling cleanup pass. The result is precise, efficient motion that is easier on your tooling and your machine.
