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
- 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:
- Check for Updates
- Migration Wizard
- Batch toolpath processing
