What’s New Mastercam 2021 : Skip All Pockets in Optirough
In Mastercam 2021, OtpiRough toolpaths have a new option to skip all pockets automatically, preventing entry into any closed pockets to prevent tool chatter or wear. No workarounds are needed and material removal is maximized on slanted parts where open pockets allow maximum material removal from the outside of the part. Our expert Bo Rohde explains how it works and shows how it reduces manual workarounds and provides more material removal with less effort.
