CNC Software’s Mastercam 2018 mill offers expanded machining flexibility and an increased emphasis on speed and automation. 2D high speed tool paths, 3D enhancements, and multi-axis features combine with additional enhancements in a package intended to improve shopfloor productivity.    

Stock awareness has been added to select 2D tool paths and allows tool motion on the top, bottom or both values of the stock. The workflow for all 3D high speed tool paths has also been streamlined and provides fine control over where to cut. As well, common direction has been added to select tool paths and keeps the tool at a uniform tilt angle to reduce tool and machine motion.
