New setup sheet tools let you document the process with an unlimited number of captioned images.

2D Machining
Mastercam Router delivers the tools you need for precise control over all aspects of 2D machining including contouring, drilling, pocketing, and more. Mastercam also delivers a powerful way to automatically mill and drill solid models—Feature Based Machining. FBM evaluates a part’s features and automatically designs an effective machining strategy. Automatic Toolpathing (ATP) brings in parts from today’s top design packages to help speed flat panel work.

The software automates leftover material identification and removal, providing you with finer finishes. And, Dynamic Motion technology™ extends tool life and reduces machine wear, while eliminating tool dwell damage.
