What is Dynamic Motion?
Dynamic Motion is the concept at the heart of Mastercam’s expanding set of material-aware toolpaths. Traditional toolpaths are driven solely by the shape they’re cutting, but Dynamic toolpaths consider a much wider variety of factors. In essence, it takes the optimal parameters for a perfect straight-line cut and works to apply them to an entire toolpath, keeping your tool in an optimum and safe cutting condition.
What can it do for me?
Optimal material removal, dramatically faster cut time, much longer tool life, reduced machine stress – there is a broad array of benefits you get from Dynamic Motion toolpaths. It can even make cutting tough materials easier. And it can be used on virtually any machine.
Where can I get it?
If you’re already a Mastercam user, you likely already have it. We have been adding the technology to more and more toolpaths over the last few releases. Facing, roughing, pocketing, contouring – and now even some turning – all include Dynamic Motion options.
And if you’re not using Mastercam, it’s a powerful reason to try it. Dynamic Motion technology is at the core of many of our new toolpaths, so you’ll have them with your first install.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details about this technique and what it can do for you!
