Consolidating Multiaxis Toolpaths

Morph, Parallel, Along Curve, and Project Curve are no longer individual toolpaths in Mastercam. Instead, the Unified toolpath allows access to these cut patterns when you add the appropriate curves. For example, to create a toolpath that morphs between two surfaces, select Unified from the Multiaxis toolpaths, and then set the Cut Pattern to two surfaces with the Morph style, as shown in the following image:

The "Cut Pattern" page.

Toolpaths in files from previous releases are automatically converted to a Unified toolpath as follows: 

  • Morph—Becomes the Unified toolpath with a Cut Pattern of two curves or surfaces with the Morph style.

  • Parallel—(set to Curves or Surface): Becomes the Unified toolpath with a Cut Pattern of one curve or surface with the Parallel style.

  • Parallel—(set to Angle): Becomes the Unified toolpath with a Cut Pattern of Plane with the style set to the appropriate plane.

  • Along Curve—Becomes the Unified toolpath with a Cut Pattern of Curve with the Perpendicular style.

  • Project Curve—Becomes the Unified toolpath with a Cut Pattern of Curve with the Project style.
