Why Choose Mastercam?
Mastercam 2D Machining Package
From the simple to the complex, Mastercam Mill's 2D machining package delivers the tools you need to make your job easier.
With Feature Based Machining (FBM) Mastercam automatically programs prismatic solid parts with features like drill holes, contours, and pockets.
Automate machining of chamfer features on solid models.
Precision chip control for a wide set of tools, plus specialized tool support including ISCAR®’s High Efficiency Machining (HEM) tool set and more.
Dynamic Motion powers much of our 2D suite. It allows you to maximize your material removal rate, and can lower your cycle time, while increasing the life of your cutting tools. Check out

Mastercam 3D Machining Package
Our finish is more finished. Mastercam provides unsurpassed control on surface cuts delivering superior finishes and optimized cycle times.
Mastercam provides unsurpassed control on surface cuts delivering superior finishes and optimized cycle times.
• Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology powers dramatically efficient roughing.
• Constant scallop machining maintains a consistent finish on sloped and flat surfaces.
• Constant-Z rest milling (remachining) identifies and machines areas needing a smaller tool.
• Hybrid finishing creates a single toolpath that changes cut methods as the slope changes.
Cut multiple surfaces, solid models, and STL data — our refined 3D toolpaths give you a smooth, precision finish to please even your toughest customers.
Mastercam Multi Axis Machining Package
Complexity simplified. With Mastercam, you have complete control over the three crucial elements of multiaxis machining: cut pattern, tool axis control, and collision avoidance.
Other highlights include:
• Multisurface 5-axis roughing and finishing (including depth cuts), plunge roughing, and flowline machining.
• Swarf machining over multisurface floors.
• Advanced gouge checking, a “safe zone” around the part, and safe linking between operations .
• Fast, simple 5-axis trimming and stock-aware drilling.
• Ability to create full 5-axis motion from a 3-axis toolpath.
For specialty machining, ask about these available Add-Ons:
• Mastercam Blade Expert for multibladed parts and hubs.
• Mastercam Port Expert for head ports and tube-type applications.
Mastercam is crafted to help you get the best possible finish in the shortest amount of time. From basic 5-axis contours to Dynamic roughing and complex finishing, Mastercam is built to streamline multiaxis programming.
Dynamic Motion Technology
Decreases cycle time, extends tool life and maximizes your metal removal rate.
Dynamic Motion™ toolpaths maximize material removal rate and can reduce cycle times by 25 to 75%. Dynamic Motion uses a proprietary set of rules to continually adjust toolpath motion to maintain a constant chip thickness everywhere on the part. This results in consistent machining performance, shorter cycle times, and longer tool life.
The secret is in the chips.
A consistent chip load is crucial to an efficient cut. Mastercam’s Dynamic toolpaths calculate the precise peak efficiency of the tool, material, and speed. When you get it right, heat is taken away in the chips, keeping the tool and part cool to the touch. You see it in uniform chip size. You hear it in how the machine runs. You’ll appreciate it in dramatically shorter run times, fewer tool replacements, and a much stronger.
Optimum cutting on any geometry.
Dynamic Motion maintains conditions across the entire cut by calculating optimum feed rate for a given material, tool, and tool diameter. You will see that chip size won't vary. You will hear the difference, too. No chirping, squealing, or chatter. Just fast, consistent, and safe Dynamic Motion.
Accelerated Finishing Technology
Decrease your cycle time and improves your surface finish.
Mastercam's Accelerated Finishing™ technology, simply called Finish, is the next leap forward in addressing today's innovative profile tools and processes aimed at greater efficiency and higher machining productivity. Collaborating with the industry's smartest tool manufacturers, our software takes full advantage of these new tool designs to dramatically reduce finishing cycle times while actually improving surface finish.
Fewer passes. Better surface finish.
Leveraging new designs in large-radii tool profiles, Mastercam Accelerated Finishing technology maximizes tool contact area. That means fewer passes, flatter cusps, and a better surface finish.
Innovations designed for your business.
Mastercam's Dynamic Motion toolpaths cut roughing times by up to 75%. And now with our exclusive Accelerated Finishing technology, total cycle times are again being dramatically reduced.
Maximum machining effectiveness is achieved at the intersection of optimal machine capability, maximum cutting tool performance, and optimized toolpath strategies. Mastercam's Dynamic Motion and Accelerated Finishing technologies provide the toolpath performance needed to reach this goal.
Save time and money with Intelligent Machining
Mastercam's Dynamic Motion and Accelerated Finishing combine for powerful productivity gains.
For nearly a decade, Mastercam has included Dynamic Motion. Carving out massive amounts of material quickly while dramatically extending tool life, Dynamic Motion immediately saves money.
