Are you excited for Mastercam 2022? We sure are! Mastercam 2022 hosts many automation updates, which will make your programming faster and more efficient. Although it is hard to pick favorites, our resident Mastercam “Ninja-neer”, John Stauffer, shows you how 4 of these new features work and how they will greatly improve the way you program.


1. Unified Toolpath

Unified is the first choice, all-in-one solution for Multi Axis toolpaths. The Unified toolpath can provide seamless programming techniques between 3, 4 and 5 Axis machining.


2. Automatic Regions Chaining

This tool automatically selects machining regions, air regions, and avoidance regions for fast toolpathing.


3. OptiRough for Mill & Router

The OptiRough Toolpath is now available in Mill and Router! Rough and rest mill complex shapes with a single, highly efficient toolpath.


4. Holemaking Toolpaths

Selecting multiple holes just got easier! PLUS, adjust projection lengths for holemaking tools to assure the tool is right for the job, without Simulation or Verify.
