2D Machining

Serious 2D capability.

Your daily needs for 2D machining can range from simple to very complex. Mastercam Mill delivers the tools you need. 

  • Feature Based Machining (FBM) automatically programs prismatic solids drill holes, contours, and pockets. Save or change the strategies at any time.

  • Complete and easy control of approach, start points, and entry methods.

  • Contour and pocket remachining use smaller tools to automatically clean out material left from previous operations.

  • Radial chip thinning 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, constantly adapting to create smoother, safer motion and making better use of the entire tool. Check out new videos at to hear it directly from our customers.

3D Machining

Our finish is more finished.

Mastercam’s extensively shop-tested 3D toolpaths provide unsurpassed control on surface cuts, delivering 
superior finishes and optimized cycle times. Our smart hybrid finishing  creates a single toolpath that changes 
cut methods as the slope of the model changes. And our refined 3D toolpaths give you the smooth, precision 
finish to please even your toughest customers. 

  • Cut multiple surfaces, solid models, and mesh entities (STL data).

  • Dramatically efficient roughing  powered by Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology.

  • Constant scallop machining maintains a consistent finish on sloped and flat surfaces alike by using a consistent 3D stepover.

  • Constant-Z rest milling (remachining) identifies and machines areas and critical depths that need to be cut with a smaller tool. 

  • Pencil tracing walks a tool along the intersection of surfaces to clean out hard-to-reach areas. Single or multiple passes deliver precision cleanup.

Multiaxis Machining

Complexity simplified.

Multiaxis machining can dramatically increase a shop’s competitiveness.  Mastercam’s multiaxis interface is surprisingly simple and intuitive to use, ensuring any shop can make the move when the time is right. With Mastercam, you have complete control over the three crucial elements of multiaxis machining: cut pattern, tool axis control, and collision avoidance. From 4-axis rotary and roll die cutting to multiblade impellers with tight internal cuts, Mastercam helps simplify even the most complex jobs.
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.
