Mastercam2017 Tutorial video - how to make a complete NC program

MasterCAM plugin for Catia? Why not just use Catia CAM?

Mastercam has an add-on that you can buy to be able to read Catia files that your customer sends you. It's not really a plugin, but more of a translator. And they aren't cheap, a few years back when I priced them I believe they were over $2,000 to be able to read Catia files.

Guys, I've been using Mastercam for over 10 years, from version 7 all the way to X9. Let me show you how it's done:

Step 1: uninstall all versions of mastercam completely and throw the fob and any CDs/DVDs in the trash

Step 2: install HSM, Gibbscam, Fusion, or anything else. program accordingly

bam, done in under 20 minutes.
