What's New In Mastercam 2018

Check out the latest upgrades and changes in this version.

Contour Enhancements – Chamfer Tool Offset Within the Mastercam 2018 version updates have been made to allow for Tip Offset on the top or bottom when chamfer milling.

Machine Finish Passes: Ability to select machine finish passes after roughing all contours on the Multi Passes Page.

Multi Pass Order: Previously multi passes were directed By contour, where one chain had to be completed before starting the next. In this version you can choose By contour or By pass on the Multi Passes page, allowing you to select pass numbers.

Rough Pass Cut Direction: Cut direction of the rough passes can be controlled better – with the change in 2018, you can select One Way or Zigzag, while respecting the Keep tool down option.

High Speed Workflow – Mastercam 2018 brings forward a streamlined workflow for 3D High Speed toolpaths with the ability to machine or avoid different part of geometry. The Toolpath Control page includes more options and allows you to create settings for Approximate start point and Strategy.

Link Associativity – The ability to program your linking moves within most 2D toolpaths has been improved by using associative points. Using features such as Clearance Amount, you can change the Clearance plane. Point, Engrave and all Wireframe toolpaths do no use associative points.

Sandvik Coromant PrimeTurning Support – Sandvik Coromant and Mastercam has created a partnership where you have the ability to turn conventionally and with the PrimeTurning directions.   These changes are able to create over 50% productivity gains and improved tool life depending on the materials. PrimeTurning is a C-hook for Mastercam 2018 and will be integrated as a standard turning feature in the Mastercam 2019.

Solid Sweep – Mastercam 2018 provides more options and controls – creating new opportunities for 3D Along curve and 2D Along curves. Also, End Profile Chains ensures that you can easily transition from one profile to another. Guide Chan has also been updated. New Alignment Options allow you to create different angle relationships: Normal and Parallel. Sharp Corners allows you to skip using a fillet between entities on the Along Curve, with Mastercam mitering when sharp corners are encountered. Sweep Twist allows you to twist the profile as it travels Along Chain.

Tool Locators For B-Axis Heads – Mastercam 2018 includes support for tool locators for B-Axis Heads – Spindle tool locators enable a proper positioning of tools in the B-Axis Head.

“I live over 100 miles away from the nearest reseller and training, so this class was a lifesaver for me. I have used most of the training books and would say Streamingteacher is much better than any of them.”
Hillsboro, OR

Kevin Nguyen

Acumed, Inc. - Hillsboro, Oregon
“The courseware on Streamingteacher helped me as a student to gain the knowledge on how to use Mastercam. The material was well presented, and the instructor is excellent, helping to answer all of the student questions clearly. I work for the R&D department at Acumed making programs for machines such as Trunnion 5X mill, lathe, wire EDM and Swiss machine. I recommend Streamingteacher’s program to others as I have found it to be very helpful.”

“Streamingteacher is the genuine thing! You cannot learn more from any on site training facility as you can obtain from Streamingteacher. Streamingteacher allows me to train in the comfort of my home any time and allows me to go back and refer to sessions that I might have not understood the first time. Keep up the good work! I would like to take this opportunity and thank you for courseware that is well presented and very professionally done. Well Done!”

“I used Streamingteacher in the evenings at home to be prepared for things that I know are coming up at work in the next couple of days. I have books for Mastercam, but Streamingteacher is much better because you can hear, as well as see what is happening. I use Mastercam for complex parts on ProtoTrac machines. It saves me a lot of fat finger time and mistakes. I would recommend this program to all who wish to learn Mastercam at their own pace.”

“I have used and will continue to use Streaming Teacher at work and at home. The personalized training that you can accomplish at your own pace is like a private tutor sitting next to you. Streaming Teacher is always growing, which makes it a valuable resource in our engineering group. Questions that come up from time to time in technique and the helpful tips that are shared are only a mouse click away. The interactive ability of Streaming Teacher to stop and replay any portion of the lesson has made it a flexible tool. I would say that it is the most innovative way to learn Mastercam. I would recommend this to anyone that is a first time user or an experienced user of Mastercam.”
