What’s New Mastercam 2021 – Chamfer Drill Toolpath
Adding chamfers or spot drilling holes of various sizes on a single part just got easier with the new Chamfer Drill toolpath in Mastercam 2021. Simply set the size of the desired chamfer and the selected face or edge sets the top of the feature and the size. The toolpath sets the depth to achieve the desired chamfer result. To make a simple center drill, simply use a chamfer size of zero or set a negative chamfer size and the center drill will set a suitable depth relative to the hole size.
