May 2013 - CNC Software announces the release of Mastercam X7. Mastercam X7 introduces significant new capabilities, including the new Mill-Turn product, Renishaw Productivity+, Lathe Dynamic Rough, and so much more. Mastercam's Mill-Turn product makes machining on today’s high-powered turning centers and full-function machining centers simpler and easier than ever before.

Mastercam Mill-Turn streamlines the programming process with intelligent job setups that are keyed to the exact machine in your shop. Intelligent work plane selection makes it easy to select the proper spindle and turret, all while programming your part with Mastercam's proven mill and lathe toolpaths.

Mastercam X7 integrates Renishaw's Productivity+ for in-process gauging. This uses a measuring probe on a machine tool to determine fixture offsets, orientation, and critical dimensions. Probing eliminates the need for tool presetters, expensive fixtures, and manual settings with dial indicators. It allows for machine offsets to be automatically adjusted during machining to further enhance the manufacturing process.

The Lathe Dynamic Rough toolpath is designed for hard materials cut with button inserts. The dynamic motion allows the toolpath to cut gradually, remain engaged in the material more effectively, and use more of the surface on your insert, extending tool life and increasing the cutting speed.

More powerful tools in Mastercam X7 include:

The new Tool Manager, providing a whole new way to create and organize your tooling.

Improved Backplot and Verify utilities that offer a more efficient workflow, better analysis tools, and more comprehensive toolpath support.

Dynamic and OptiRough toolpaths with more efficient tool motion, including enhanced cut orders and faster calculation times.

Multi-threading support extended to most 2D high speed toolpaths, resulting in faster toolpath processing.

Oscillate motion for Curve and Swarf 5-axis toolpaths, improving your tool life by not always machining with the same area of the tool.
