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

What are the differences between Curve and Drill and the MultiAxis package?

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.

Is there another tool that can help create faster Curve 5-axis toolpaths?

Very often we will see the Moldplus 5-axis toolkit being bundled with the Curve and Drill 5-axis for trimming application.
