The new Mastercam X7 CAD/CAM software packs a host of new capabilities including a new Mill-Turn product. The Mastercam X7 update was showcased at the AeroDef 2013 show in Long Beach, CA, March 19-21, and is due out in Q2 2013. Mastercam’s Mill-Turn product makes machining on today’s high-powered turning centers and full-function machining centers simpler and easier. Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process with intelligent job setups that are keyed to the machine in your shop. Intelligent work plane selection makes it easy to select the proper spindle and turret, and program parts with Mastercam’s proven milling and lathe toolpaths. Mastercam Blade Expert is a custom application designed to generate toolpaths for cutting multi-bladed parts. Blade Expert cuts multi-split impellers, propellers, and turbines. Blade Expert has a clear, precise user interface which follows the consistent flow of all existing five-axis toolpaths, resulting in a smooth toolpath, precise finish, and a dramatic reduction in programming and cycle time.
