APlus image in Mastercam


Partnering with CAMfacturing Solutions, Mastercam has an Add-On for Additive Manufacturing (AM) in Mastercam. Using the same interface Mastercam users are familiar with, APlus customers can program, backplot, and simulate their 3D printing scenarios just like they would with traditional toolpaths in Mastercam.

  • Used with Mastercam Mill, Lathe, or Router licenses except for Entry.
  • Generate Additive Manufacturing toolpaths.
  • Visualize the additive and machining outcome.
  • Great for R&D, repair work on existing parts, and creation of parts.


Typical use of APlus is primarily seen in Government, R&D, and educational institutions, but is a growing technology that will work side-by-side with traditional subtractive manufacturing. As mentioned above, APlus is great for R&D, repair work on existing parts, and creation of parts that any tool in the subtractive world could not reach.
