Mastercam X6 Preview #6 – Blade Expert

The Mastercam Blade Expert add-on greatly simplifies the toolpath creation process for any multi bladed parts, including fans, propellers, impellers, turbines, marine screws, and more. There is no limit to the number of blades, splitters, or sub-splitters that can be programmed. A few highlights include a variety of powerful and flexible multiaxis roughing strategies; precise cut pattern control on blade, fillet, and floor finishing; automatic tool axis control, ensuring smooth machine motion; and full machine simulation to aid in getting the most out of the machine. Blade Expert eliminates guess work, gives you smooth toolpaths, and dramatically reduces programming time.
