What’s New in Mastercam 2019: Check Holder
Mastercam 2019 includes many advances to help streamline your entire process, from job setup to job completion. Today we’ll look at What’s New in Mastercam 2019: Check Holder.
Some of the functionality of the existing Check Holder C-Hook is now incorporated into Mastercam 2019. Use Check Holder to analyze a Mill toolpath and calculate a safe minimum tool projection to avoid interference between the holder and the part. This is a great utility to use when you do not want to modify the toolpath, for example by trimming it, to prevent collisions. Check Holder allows you to adjust the tool length to ensure that the holder clears the part.
