Mastercam X9 – The Best of Both Worlds

Mastercam for SOLIDWORKSWe’re excited to announce that as part of our next product release, customers who purchase Mastercam X9 will be able to use Mastercam or Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS, giving them “The Best of Both Worlds.”

With this change, users will now have the ability to have a totally integrated solution, which is often mandated by management or an outside vendor, but they also have the ability to work with Mastercam if that is where their experience lies.

As a Mastercam customer, you are not receiving an additional seat; just the choice of how you use Mastercam to create toolpaths. We know that a majority of part files you receive are generated with SOLIDWORKS, so for those of you who also use SOLIDWORKS, this gives you the opportunity to use whichever product best fits your individual situation.

MCfSW will be available at no additional charge to Mastercam X9 users of Mill 2D, Mill 3D, and Lathe since these products have a MCfSW equivalent. Those customers with the Educational Suite will have access to MCfSW 3D and Lathe.


  • There is no corresponding Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS version of Mastercam Router, Mastercam Wire, Mastercam Mill-Turn, or Mastercam Swiss.
  • To run MCfSW, you must own a seat of SOLIDWORKS 2013 or newer (purchased separately).
