Mastercam 2017 includes solids!

What Mastercam Solids Delivers

• Faster modeling of parts, molds, and fixtures using integrated solids, surfaces and wireframe.
• Greater flexibility in accepting outside models.
• Solids machining with access to Mastercam X’s powerful CAM functions.
• The addition of Solids turns Mastercam X into a true hybrid modeler.
• Based on the industry-leading Parasolid® kernel, Mastercam X Solids delivers powerful solid modeling with an eye for production.

Solid Modeling for Manufacturing

• Mastercam Solids gives you powerful, streamlined solid modeling for practical design.
• Fast solids construction using familiar modeling techniques.
• Powerful revolve, extrude, loft and sweep commands.
• Easy shelling and thin-wall creation.
• Boolean addition, subtraction and common volume calculation between solids and
• Fast, efficient chamfering and filleting, including useful face-to-face fillets.
• Draft solid faces.
• Create sheet solids that can be thickened, shelled, and more.
• Trim solids to a single surface or to multiple surfaces using sheet solids for maximum
  design potential.
• Freedom to model without part constraints.
• Hybrid modeling interaction between solids, surfaces and wireframe.
• Quick and easy tool boundary silhouette creation from solids or surfaces.

Flexible Hybrid Modeling

Flexibility is crucial to efficient part design and programming. Mastercam Solids lets you mix and match modeling techniques. Need to add surface or wireframe elements to a solid? Want to quickly add solid components to a complex surface model? Now it’s easy. Mastercam Solids gives you the speed of solids, the power of surfaces, and the simplicity of wireframe. You choose the right tool for the right job.

.Precision Tools for Flexible Design

   • Sew multiple surfaces into a single solid.
   • Mastercam’s Solid Feature Recognition
     identifies features such as fillets and
     holes on imported solids and adds those
     features to the history tree.
   • Delete and add solid faces for easy solid


.  Solid Machining Made Easy

.  Mastercam Solids is a fully integrated component
   of Mastercam CAD/CAM products. When
   combined with Mastercam Mill, Mastercam
   Solids gives you the ideal way to machine
   your solid models.

   Import, create, and program
   your solids in the same easy-to-use interface,
   with full access to all Mastercam’s powerful
   programming tools.


The Mastercam Mill / Mastercam Solids
combination gives you full associativity
between your model and toolpath. Make
a quick change to your model, and get
an updated toolpath with a single mouse

 ..Solids gives you freedom unavailable
   with other types of modeling, such as
   removing your model from a solid block
   to create a mold.


Open Access to Solid Models

• Import Parasolid® , SAT and Inventor™ files as solids, surfaces and/or wireframe.
• With optional STEP and Pro/E® you can import solids as solids, surfaces or wireframe.
• Export Parasolid® and SAT files.
• Open SolidWorks® and Solid Edge® files directly, and even import history trees using the free Mastercam Direct links.

Part Management and Detailing

• Solids Manager for efficient operation tracking, reordering and editing.
• Data including volume, surface area, and center of gravity.
• Automatic multiple view solids layout with hidden lines.
• Point-and-click dimensioning as easy as wireframe
