3D tooling, which was introduced in Mastercam 2019, has many usability improvements.
- New stop-on-contact functionality when mating insert to holder.
New 3D tool icons in tool lists to help distinguish between 3D and non-3D tools in the Lathe Tool Manager.
- Auto-populating compensation point when defining 3D tools.
New tabs to display library inserts and holders in the Lathe Tool Manager.
Mastercam 2020 allows you to build inserts using the new Insert Designer function panel. Insert Designer supports ANSI and ISO parametric definitions or custom inserts based on solid models.
Also in Mastercam 2020, you can build holders using the new Holder Designer function panel. Holder Designer supports custom holders from solid models.
