Transferring Setup – Mastercam

Note: At any point that (version) is present, enter/insert/reference the version of Mastercam in question.
ie. A path states as ‘C:\Program Files\mcam(version)\common’
If you are working in Mastercam X9, the path will be ‘C:\Program Files\mcamX9\common’

 

Machine files
– Control files (.mcam-control) found in “C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\CNC_MACHINES”
– Machine definitions (.mcam-mmd, .mcam-lmd, .mcam-rmd and/or .mcam-wmd) found in “C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\CNC_MACHINES”
– Post files (.pst, .psb and/or .psm) found in “C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\Machine Type\Posts” (Machine Type could be Mill, Lathe, Router or Wire)
Tool Libraries (if you have modified or created your own)
C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\Machine Type\Tools
Power library (wire machine only)
C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\wire\power
Operation Libraries (.mcam-operations) (if you have modified or created your own) C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\Machine Type\Ops
Operations Defaults (.mcam-defaults) (if you have modified or created your own) C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\shared Mcam(version)\Machine Type\Ops
I do not recommend transferring your configuration because there will be different paths and settings from one computer to another.
