Modeling and Prep Tools to Get Your Parts On and Off The Machine Quickly

Streamlined CAD makes design work easier than ever.

Whether you’re bringing in a file from an outside CAD package or designing one yourself, Mastercam’s powerful, easy-to-use CAD engine gives you control over the final details of even the most complex jobs.

Work with your existing CAD files. 

Mastercam helps to preserve design intent with Model Based Definition (MBD) support and acceptance of varied file formats. These include IGES, Parasolid®, SAT (ACIS solids), AutoCAD® (DXF, DWG, and Inventor™ files), SOLIDWORKS® (including history tree), Solid Edge®, SpaceClaim, STEP, STL, and more. Add-On translators are available for Siemens NX, CATIATM, Pro/E (PTC Creo), and more.

Prep customer files.

Obtaining a part file from an outside source can pose unique challenges. You might need to repair a surface, work with a mesh, cap or hide a feature, create an electrode, or just make sure your fixtures are represented on the part. Mastercam offers a comprehensive collection of model preparation tools to ensure a seamless procedure. From robust surface generation and editing to “push-pull” solid model editing, Mastercam provides the tools to bring a part from the designer’s desk to your machining process, fast.

Or build your own.  

Having powerful CAD at your fingertips makes your CAM system much more effective. Mastercam includes a robust set of modelling tools, from complete wireframe to surface and solid modelling. A true hybrid modelling system, Mastercam creates, combine, and machine whichever CAD geometry suits your needs.
