What’s New 2018 Tool Locators
Mastercam 2018 brings tool locators to the spindle for B-Axis heads, further building on the turret tool locators added for Mastercam 2017.
Spindle tool locators enable proper positioning of tools in the B-axis head. In Mastercam 2017, a tool in the B-axis head would generally have its compensation point along the centerline of the head.
Mastercam 2018 supports spindle tool locators for greatly improved collision detection and a clear representation of how the tool is mounted in the machine.
