The class starts out with an extensive overview of axis combinations, rotary points, and zero positions as they relate to Mastercam. It then builds on how to control tool axis vectors using different geometric entities. The examples explain the many ways to control how the tool approaches and machines with a controlled 5-axis toolpath. This course also covers 5-axis positioning, drilling, trimming, circle milling, and machine simulation. The course identifies the 3 common multi-axis machine configurations.
