Whether you are prepping customer files…

Getting a part file from an outside source can pose unique challenges. You might need to repair a surface, cap an area, create an electrode, or just make sure your fixtures are represented on the part. Mastercam includes a powerful set of prep tools to make sure the process goes smoothly. From robust surface creation and editing to “push-pull” solid model editing, Mastercam gives you the tools to bring a part from the designer’s desk to your machine, fast. Mastercam will even recognize features on history-free solids and give you the power to edit, remove, or build on them with a few simple clicks.

Push, pull, remove, and directly edit features on imported solids, even if they have no history.

…Or building your own from scratch.

Having powerful CAD at your fingertips makes your CAM system that much more effective. Mastercam includes a robust set of modeling tools from complete wireframe and surface modeling
to history-based solid modeling. A true hybrid modeling system, Mastercam lets you create, combine, and machine whichever CAD geometry suits you best. Fast dimensioning and entity analysis tools ensure that any part you model will be precise and ready to apply accurate toolpaths that give you the NC code you need.
