What is Mastercam Collision Checking?

What happens when my tool holder is going to collide with the part that I’m machining? In this video, we’ll go over the Mastercam Collision Checker and some tips and tricks on how to leverage this feature.

Mastercam Collision Checking

With Mastercam 2023, all portions of the stock model outside of the containment boundary are checked for collisions on Dynamic OptiRough, Area Roughing, and Horizontal Area toolpaths when Collision Checking is enabled on the holder page. Rest Material must be enabled on the Stock page for this to work.
