New Power Library Format video

In addition to Mastercam Wire's current POWER libraries, Mastercam X5 adds TECH power libraries. These new database files make it easier than ever to select the correct power settings based on your machining needs. A TECH library is machine control specific. For example, when you load an EDM machine definition such as the Mitsubishi or Makino supplied with Mastercam X5, it loads the control-specific TECH-based library.


Powerful EDM Programming

2-axis
Fast 2-axis contouring
4-axis
Powerful 4-axis contouring with automatic reverse and skim cuts

Mastercam's suite of 2-axis and 4-axis wirepaths lets you choose the best method for the results you need. With Mastercam, you have complete control over the wire motion, angle, entries and exits, and much more. And you get that control in a clear, easy to understand way.

  • 2-axis contour, with or without taper angle.
  • No-core cutting.
  • 4-axis synchronization with automatic or manual input and automatic skim and reverse cuts.
  • 4-axis surface finish by chordal deviation.
  • 4-axis interpolation support (G2/G3).
  • Graphical programming with options for straight cut, tapered cut, or tapered cut with land from either direction.
  • Automatic lead-in and lead-out strategies.
  • Contour multiple parts using a single window selection.
  • Automatic maximum taper/UV travel detection.
  • Special Sharp Corner option creates an outside loop to ensure corners are not rounded off.
  • Automatic wirepath corner filleting.
  • Translate wirepaths for easy part repetition without creating new geometry.
  • Modify control settings, corner types, and taper angles at any point in a contour.
  • Define separate lead-ins and lead-outs for wirepaths with trimming of leads to improve efficiency.
  • Apply tapers before or after a vertical wirepath.
  • Click and dynamically drag a machining start point to anywhere on your model.
  • Wirepath filtering significantly reduces the size of a program. The filter automatically turns small, multiple linear moves into single line or arc moves.

Powerful Part Modeling

CAD
Easy, efficient CAD tools ensure quick design

Mastercam's streamlined CAD engine makes design work easier than ever before. Each piece of geometry you create is live, letting you quickly modify it until it's exactly what you want. Further, with traditional functions consolidated into a few simple clicks, Mastercam simplifies the creation of even the most complex parts.

  • Easy 2D and 3D geometry creation with complete wireframe and surface modeling.
  • Fast creation of a wide range of NURBS and parametric surfaces, including powerful net and fence surfaces.
  • New smart surface extension handles difficult surface intersections, delivering smooth, clean results.
  • Flexible surface filleting offers constant radius fillets and point-and-click variable radius fillets.
  • Remove trim boundaries and fill trimmed holes.
  • Automatic parting line calculation for mold making.
  • Associative dimensions update as you change your model.
  • Extensive CAD editing tools, including unlimited Undo/Redo.
  • User-definable drafting grid simplifies detailed construction.
  • Customizable AutoCursor™ snaps to commonly used construction points.
  • Solid modeling is available as an optional add-in.

More Ways to Streamline Construction

  • Dynamic Plane creation streamlines and simplifies all plane creation with easy click-and-drag tools.
  • Analyze single points, between points, angles, and entire entities.
  • Simplified and improved work coordinate system makes it easy to work on a model without having to move it in 3D space. Your new planes and origins are easily transferred to your G-code.
  • Save a description with your part for record keeping.
  • View thumbnail images of parts for easier browsing and loading.
  • Improved file management includes a variety of new options for saving and retrieving files, portions of files, specific entities, and more.

Solids

solidsMastercam can machine solids quickly and easily. But it doesn't end there. The Mastercam Solids add-in gives you powerful solid modeling right within your programming software.

Solid modeling is transforming the way parts are designed. Now you can bring that power right into your shop.

  • Faster modeling of parts, molds, and fixtures using integrated solids, surfaces and wireframe.
  • Greater flexibility in accepting outside models.
  • Solids machining with access to Mastercam's powerful CAM functions.
  • The addition of Solids turns Mastercam into a true hybrid modeler.
  • Based on the industry-leading Parasolid® kernel, Mastercam Solids delivers powerful solid modeling tools.

Translators

CAD translatorsWhether you are bringing in a file from a specific CAD package or a neutral format, dependable, accurate data translators are essential to your shop.

  • Built-in data translators for IGES, Parasolid®, SAT (ACIS solids), AutoCAD® (DXF, DWG, and InventorTM files), SolidWorks®, Solid Edge®, KeyCreator®, Rhino®, STEP, EPS, CADL, STL, VDA, and ASCII.
  • Direct translators for CATIA®, Pro/E, and more are also available.
  • When opening a SolidWorks file in Mastercam, you can bring in the entire solids history, ready to be edited with Mastercam Solids.
  • Special no-charge Mastercam Direct add-ins put a button in your CAD system's toolbar that lets you launch Mastercam and open your native file with a single click. Mastercam Direct is available for SolidWorks, Solid Edge, or AutoCAD Inventor files.

Agievision Support Control

Agie

Mastercam Wire supports Agie EDM with Agievision controls. This Agievision support includes a new interface and a complete set of machine definition / control definition / post processor files. Simply choose an Agievision AWF Wire Machine Definition, and you'll see the parameter pages that anyone familiar with Agievision will instantly recognize.
