Machining with The New 3+2 Automatic Roughing Toolpath

The new 3+2 Automatic Roughing toolpath automatically makes multiplane 3-axis toolpaths for roughing. Mastercam analyzes the model and stock, and then creates a roughing toolpath. Then Mastercam calculates the remaining stock and computes a new toolpath. This continues until only a defined amount of stock remains. The results are all contained within the one toolpath.

The image below shows the new toolpath on a part with Section view enabled, allowing you to better see the toolpath.
