Mastercam X6 Preview #1 – Stock Model

Over the next several weeks we’ll be drawing back the curtain on the upcoming Mastercam X6 and previewing some of the new features in the release. First up – stock model.
A precise machining stock model delivers a variety of benefits – viewing and verifying work as it progresses, performing stock model comparisons and easily choosing existing stock for rest machining. Mastercam X6 gives you the power to create accurate, fully-associative stock models at any point in your machining process. You can reference the model within that project or save it as geometry for other uses. You can even quickly bring in outside CAD models to use as starting stock models for added flexibility.
