Quickly calculate the raw material needs and define the stock model shape with the new bounding box feature in Mastercam 2021. In addition to calculating the extents of a shape, a new automatic orientation allows the stock shape to be rotated automatically to solve for the smallest possible volume for the geometry. Silhouette Boundary creates a blank shape with no concave faces, perfect for defining a blank shape from an EDM or plasma table. A wrap feature calculates the smallest volume of bounding box possible which resembles the finished part shrink-wrapped and ready to ship. The wrapped shape would make an efficient roughing shape or allow you to quickly calculate shipping volume.
