Mastercam 2023 Machining Software

Aug. 4, 2022
CNC Software's Mastercam 2023 has a new B-Axis Contour Turning toolpath.

Mastercam 2023 is a powerful machining software that features many new enhancements. Morph, Parallel, Along Curve, and Project Curve are no longer individual toolpaths in Mastercam 2023. Instead, the Unified toolpath allows access to these cut patterns when you add the appropriate curves.


The Dynamic OptiRough and Area Roughing toolpaths can now be aware of undercut stock conditions, resulting in improvement to the toolpath motion.


Also, Mastercam 2023 introduces a new B-Axis Contour Turning toolpath to the Turning suite for the Mill-Turn product. B-Axis Contour Turning is a finishing toolpath that allows for rotation of the B-axis while the tool is cutting. The toolpath features a top-down workflow and provides users with either Automatic or Manual motion control. Automatic mode produces safe toolpath motion that keeps the insert in contact with the contour. Manual mode offers full control over the B-axis angles along the contour.
