2018 Interface Tutorial
Last year, Mastercam introduced a new ribbon interface that capitalizes on your experience with other software, and uses that familiarity to make it easier to find the functions that you need to complete your tasks. It features new functionality focused on delivering speed and efficiency to your machining jobs. We’ve updated our 2017 tutorial to give you a smooth transition to Mastercam 2018.
This step-by-step tutorial teaches you how to create a tool database in Mastercam 2018’s Tool Manager. We begin by creating and editing a new cutting tool and holder. From there, we show you how to correctly assemble them and make further edits. Other topics include how to import one tool or an entire Mastercam library into the new database. You will also learn how to import a .dxf tool file and make any geometry modifications necessary to match Mastercam requirements.
