3D Tool Support
Mastercam now allows you to build tools from 3D STEP models, using the new Tool Designer. To create a 3D tool, select Create 3D tool from the right-click menu in the Lathe Tool Manager dialog box.
The Tool Designer is a function panel with tab-style navigation, providing a structured workflow that is similar to using a wizard. You can define tools, assign them to operations, and view them when running Classic Backplot and Mastercam Simulator.
