weve partnered with siemens in this development for the release of mastercam 2017, and are proud to announce the 3-axis milling post processor as the initial launch of strengthening our relationship for future posts that will benefit mutual customers, says pedro sanchez, jr., post department manager of cnc software, inc.
the development of this new 3-axis and 4-axis post for mastercam 2019 and the markets that need the 808d control demonstrates our ongoing relationship with siemens, to bring the highest productivity gains to machine tools. this partnership began more than two years ago with the release of our 3-axis milling 828d/840d post processor for mastercam 2017, says post department manager pedro sanchez, jr., of cnc software, inc.
a unique feature of this post is the workpiece simulation feature. it allows the user to simulate a workpiece, such as a drill cut, inside the post processor to visualize the workpiece before it is cut. this feature allows the user to simulate a whole workpiece to see how it will look after being cut.
