Mastercam X8 brings a suite of programming tools focused on delivering speed, automation and efficiency for all machining jobs. The software introduces new solids features, UI improvements, usability/workflow improvements, and so much more.

Mastercam's Dynamic Motion technology is a new and exciting approach to creating toolpaths. To create the most efficient cutting motion possible, Dynamic toolpaths calculate not only the area where metal will be removed; they also take into account the changing condition of the material throughout various stages of machining.

The solids interface and workflow has been completely redone for Mastercam X8 and makes constructing and editing solids easier and more intuitive than it’s ever been. Every existing Solids function has been updated to reflect this new workflow. Along with the new interface, there are new features such as Live Preview, Hands-on Drag Controls, and Direct Editing has been improved to make the process of model preparation easier.

Mastercam X8 delivers improved usability and the ability to customize the way you work. Panels can now be automatically hidden, docked to either side of the window or undocked and placed outside of Mastercam. The graphics display has been upgraded to provide cleaner aesthetics, and clearer, more responsive selection while delivering a much improved overall look and feel. In addition, new icons provide a consistent color palette that is modern, clean, and colorblind friendly.
