Dynamic Motion® toolpaths safely maximize material removal rate, reducing cycle times by 25 to 75%. Dynamic Motion uses a proprietary software engine to continually adjust toolpath motion to maintain a constant chip thickness everywhere on the part. The result? Consistent machining performance, shorter cycle times, and longer tool life.

Our finish is more finished.

UMastercam provides unsurpassed control on surface cuts, delivering superior finishes and optimized cycle times.

  • Mastercam’s Dynamic Motion technology powers dramatically efficient roughing.
  • Constant scallop machining maintains a consistent finish on sloped and flat surfaces.
  • Constant-Z rest milling (remachining) identifies and machines areas needing a smaller tool.
  • Hybrid finishing creates a single toolpath that changes cut methods as the slope changes.
  • Pencil tracing walks a tool along the intersection
    of surfaces to clean out hard-to-reach areas.

Cut multiple surfaces, solid models, and STL data — our refined 3D toolpaths give you a smooth, precision finish to please even your toughest customers.
