Mastercam Curve & Drill
5-Axis Curve Machining and Drilling helps you make better use of the capabilities that 5-axis machines provide. Your multiaxis machine is capable of drilling holes from different angles with a single fixture setup, saving time and increasing productivity. The power of multiaxis drill becomes apparent on parts that contain multiple holes with center lines pointing in different directions.
Cut a complex three-dimensional contour with 5-axis motion composed of a 3D chain, surface, or solid edges, generally for 5-axis trimming operations.
5-axis drilling simplifies the creation of 3- through 5-axis drilling output for holes in a part. You can spot, drill, bore, and tap holes on multiple planes in a single setup.
Open any CAD file in Mastercam to access modeling and prep tools to get parts on and off machines quickly. No need to re-create parts from scratch—you can do it all in Mastercam.
Frequently asked questions
Curve and Drill is often an introduction to simultaneous 5-axis toolpaths. The product allows you to drill or do a contour in 5-axis. This is often used for trimming applications.
Very often we will see the Moldplus 5-axis toolkit being bundled with the Curve and Drill 5-axis for trimming application.
