Easy Wizard Cycles for quick tool path creations such circle patterns and profiles, slots, rectangular pocketing, thread milling, rigid tapping (with optional encoder kit) and peck drilling applications.
One of many Cycle Wizards On this window, create a circular pocket without using CAD and CAM software.
CNC machine your own gears and splines adding a cnc fourth axis.
Easily create a helical movement driving X, Y and Z at the same for thread milling.
Do all sorts of drilling cycles from high speed pecking to deep hole drilling operations.
Import FANUC based G and M code programs from your CAM software. We also offer Visualmill CAM as an option which comes with a post processor made for CNC Masters machinery.
G00 = Position (Fast speed)
G01 = Linear interpolation (Feed speed)
G02 = Circular interpolation (CW)
G03 = Circular Counter-clockwise interpolation (CCW) Format: X__Y__I__J__ I,J are relative distance from start to center. Z can be added for helical designs.G40 = Cancels G41 and/or G42
G41 = Tool Radius compensation left
G42 = Tool Radius compensation right

G71 = Input in millimeters
G73 = High-Speed Peck Drilling Cycle
G81 = Drilling Cycle
G82 = Counter Boring Cycle
G80 = Cancel Cycle
G83 = Deep Hole Peck Drilling Cycle
G90 = Absolute move (Modal)
G91 = Relative/Incremental move (Modal)M00 = Pause
M03 = Spindle on
M04 = Spindle on reverse

Don’t know G-codes? Choose your Conversational Commands from our Pick Menu and simply type in your coordinates or mix it in with G-code commands right in the Editor.
View your tool path program in 2D or 3D in Simulation Mode.
Use your touch screen monitor – desktop or laptop – Windows 7, 8, or 10 – 64 bit operating systems to drive your CNC machine in pendant style.
No additional hardware needed. Plugs in by simple USB connection. The CNC Masters MX Control Unit is built with direct USB connection. No internal port conversions or having to use other hard-to-locate platforms.
Check out the New Master MX
The MX supports…
Tool Height Compensation up to Ten Tools within one program
Tool Radius Offsets
Feed Hold – step through each line in the program while opting to shut the spindle off and then resume program
Pause in the middle of a program
Coolant Control – optional
Variable Spindle Control from 0 to max – optional
Spindle Encoder for rigid tapping – optional
Jog Feed/Teach Mode – create a program simply by jogging your axes
Feed and Spindle Speed Over-Rides on the fly
Relative exact movement positioning without writing a program — type in one movement and one-click your jog +/- arrow to drive that exact movement
Start from another location other than 0.00 – just preset the new coordinates directly into the counters
Press Go from another location in your program to drive your cutter
Save 0.00 “and” a home offset position for future program runs
Live Counter Display during computer numerical control movement without jumping ahead
Displays and runs in either inches or millimeters
4th axis interpolation – simultaneous motion with the other axes – optional
Rapids up to 100″/minute
Trace Mode – Run one line independently at a time from beginning to end in your program to help you study the movement and establish your setup
Editor Locked/Unlocked to easily write and edit your program and prevent accidental typing during a program run
Displays Run Time
Hot Keys – if your preference is to control your machine by keyboard such as the arrows, space bar, and letters simply open the Hot Keys command
Run Sub-Routine programs using CALL for nesting applications or to mass produce the same part on a constant loop.
Disable Motors — Easily disable motors to hand crank each axis. Re-engage the motors for cnc control in one click.
Download Master MX
Disable Anti-Virus/Firewall prior to downloading the software.
Installation Instructions: For Windows PC 7, 8, or 10 only. Use a widescreen monitor for best results. After it has finished downloading, copy the zipped folder from your Downloads page, and paste the zipped folder on your desktop. Right click over the zipped folder. Choose “Extract All” to your desktop screen. You can now access the unzipped Master MX files folder.
Double click on MasterMX.exe (application) to open the Master MX. You can also right click over “MasterMX.exe”, choose [Send to], and click on [Desktop (create shortcut)] to create a shortcut icon to your desktop screen. If you are using the MX for your CNC Masters machine, be sure to go to Tools > Computer Requirements prior to machining. (For Master XU users only: please note that the MX is not compatible with the XU control unit.)
