Choosing and purchasing software for your CNC machines is a huge investment. Being the #1 most widely used CAM software in the world, Mastercam is an excellent choice. At MCAM Northwest, we aim to educate our customers on how to get the most out of their manufacturing software investment.  

One of the most key components to getting the most out of your Mastercam purchase is signing up for their Software Maintenance Program. Perks of this program include no additional cost for major software releases, priority access to technical support, access to the Mastercam Tech Exchange, CAD translators, webinars and beta testing for features before they are released to the general public. 

Although these are all sweet perks, the bottom line is that being on Maintenance gives you a great return on investment because it assures that you have access to the most current, efficient and sophisticated programming features and toolpaths available.

Instead of reading a list of all the percentages about estimated programming time and cost savings that come with modern toolpaths and features, there is a much more interactive resource out there to figure out the benefits of staying on maintenance. 

If you’re asking yourself, “Should I stay on maintenance?”, you can peruse the information on the enhancements added to the current Mastercam release on to help you make that decision.

If you want to explore the benefits of the Mastercam Software Maintenance Program with more guidance, please contact our Sales team at
