Expanding the Functionality of Mastercam Demo/Home Learning Edition

Mastercam Demo/Home Learning Edition (HLE) is Mastercam’s free CAD/CAM software for demonstration and educational purposes. It is a trial version of Mastercam that is meant for personal use.

In previous releases, Demo/HLE was a separate installation. In this release, Demo/HLE uses the same installation media as our core application in all installations of Mastercam or Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS that are governed by a software license. This version of Demo/HLE also includes more Mastercam products, add-ons, and functionality as described below.

These add-on products are now included with the new Demo/HLE license:

  • Port Expert
  • Blade Expert
  • Productivity+™
  • ProDrill (Mastercam only)
  • Mill-Turn (Mastercam only)
    • Includes support for all Mill-Turn machine environments

Demo/HLE users who wish to use Mill-Turn can load any of the generic Fanuc machine environments that are installed with Mastercam 2022 without an additional license.

Additionally, Mastercam 2022 Demo/HLE includes the following features:

  • Zip2Go
  • Check for Updates
  • Migration Wizard
  • Batch toolpath processing
  • Saving control definitions
  • Network licensing

The following features are only available in the Mastercam version of Demo/HLE:
