CAD/CAM Reduces Programmer Interaction

CAD/CAM software Mastercam X sports virtual models of actual machine tools and controls to be used to cut parts.

This lets the program self-customize its interface based on specific CNC machines and ensure a correctly programmed part and reduced programmer interaction. The software includes tools such as the Pencil Offset Finishing toolpath, which extends the crisp "cleanup" of a pencil trace toolpath across an entire part.
