CAD-CAM softwares are an integral part of the CNC Masters Machinery and of the CNC world of machining in general. Yes, you can use simple commands found on the Master MX operating software to program your CNC Masters machines, but if you are planning to machine a complex design then investing in a CAD-CAM software will be an invaluable tool as much as your CNC Masters machinery. 3D design and translation of your drawing into G-codes will save you extensive downtime instead of writing your g-codes files from scratch and reducing mathematical errors in design. This is really the way to go. Most companies use a CAD software to draw their application. Use CAM — “Computer Aided Manufacturing” software to convert that CAD file into a tool path program. Then just simply import this tool path program into the MX software which comes with your CNC Masters machine and it will machine your application for you according to your original CAD file!
Check out this quick Video Demo how CAD and CAM software creates your tool path programs to machine your applications on your CNC MASTERS machinery.
