Design Tools 12.0 - the latest version of the CAD Tools with newer interfaces has been released for Mastercam 2022, 2021, 2020 and 2019.
Design Tools Standard offers the Mastercam end-user a range of tools to help prepare part models for manufacturing. Tools include allowing for surface trimming, surface normal setting, smart surface selection, edge creation tools, part surface extensions, mold split analysis, core and cavity separation and mold run-off creation,.
Design Tools Professional builds on top of the Standard Tools by offering powerful tools for surface trim boundary manipulation, surface connection/junction creation, electrode creation and vacuum forming tools, creating curves and vectors along with path manipulation tools for 5-axis curve and drill machining. STL models can be split into multiple closed body sections and edges created.
* All of the Design Tools Standard Features
Quick part preparation tools for 5axis machining. Powerful curve and vector creation and manipulation tools for Curve/Drill 5axis machining in Mastercam. Any client doing curve/drill 5axis machining in Mastercam needs these tools!
*** Minimum requirements: Mastercam Mill, Mastercam 5-axis Curve Machining and Drilling
Create Swarf paths by creating curves and vectors along the wall angles (fully editable and tiltable).
- Instantly create the Mastercam Curve 5axis toolpath using the curves and vectors from these paths!
Quickly design and create an interlockable support structure consisting of 2D plates to support parts for trimming and other finishing applications.
Plate fixtures can be economical when manufactured from wood or aluminum. The process of designing and manufacturing these plates can be cut down from days to minutes if they are being designed manually!!!
