What’s New in Mastercam 2019: Mesh Selection/Creation
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: Mesh Selection/Creation.
Mastercam 2019 recognizes the endpoints of mesh vertices and all mesh vertices that reside along mesh edges. Use the AutoCursor settings to control the sensitivity of mesh vertex selection for more flexibility during CAD creation and dimensioning. Mastercam’s ability to identify mesh vertices and endpoints enhances the Curve One Edge or Curve All Edges functions, making it easy to identify and create edge curves.
Each function panel has a new Mesh Edge Angle tolerance, which determines what angle is considered an edge. Modify the tolerance angle to identify more or fewer potential edges. This control minimizes slight changes in curvature being incorrectly identified as edges.
