Transition moves between toolpath passes must be safe for the part and the tool. Depending on the machine and the post-processor transition moves may not feed linearly and can be unpredictable, so Mastercam 2021 introduces two new options for transition moves. Output as feed moves outputs moves as feed instead of rapid, meaning the moves will follow the exact path regardless of the control and produce safe reliable motion.

When a retract is preferred, fillets can be added to the rapid moves automatically to reduce stress on the machine during high-speed motion.
