Mastercam software is a product of CNC Software; From the name of software and company, it can be understood that it is one of the oldest CADCAM software or computer-aided design, manufacturing and production, which is to prepare the machining path for CNC machines. Of course, the word Mastercam is an ambiguous term, and in addition to the meaning of complete mastery of CAM or computer-aided production, it means the connection between old methods and new machine-tool methods in this software. Advanced and complete 2D and 3D modeling, multiaxial machining, surface operations, etc. are some of the tasks that this software is responsible for. It also comes in a separate version for SolidWorks software.
Features and specifications of Mastercam software :
– Has a suitable user environment and the possibility of learning to work relatively easily
– Requires less hardware equipment than similar software
– Presenting the latest machining methods and strategies
– Support for multi-axis rotation and milling
– Precise and advanced machining up to five axes
– Ability to import parts designed with common CAD software and also output the project for these programs
– Has a tool to coordinate and link machining operations with the geometry of the part
– Wired EDM capability (stands for Electrical Discharge Machining, meaning electrical discharge machining)
– Has a large library of ready-made parts
If you have used the previous version of USB Emulator, you do not need to reinstall it.
Install the program and select one of the HASP or NetHASP options in the optional SIM Type selection step . (In the case of Mastercom for SolidWorks, select only the NetHASP option.) After installing the contents of the mcamX9 folder (in the case of MasterCard for SolidWorks, copy the McamforSWX9 folder) to the installation location. If you choose the 32-bit version (X7), go to the next step, and if you install the 64-bit version, you need to do the following:
In Windows Vista and 7, reset Windows and press the F8 key and display various options, go to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement and press Enter .
In Windows 8 and 8.1, by default, pressing the F8 key does not display the corresponding window, and you must go to the Charms bar (right bar) in Windows and go to the following sections, respectively:
Settings-> Change PC settings-> Update & recovery-> Recovery-> Restart now-> Troubleshoot-> Advanced options-> Startup Settings-> Restart
After restarting Windows and displaying the Startup Settings window , press the F7 key for Disable driver signature enforcement .
The important point is that this should be done every time you start Windows and if you need to use the program.
Folder USB Emulator x86 / x64 on drive C Copy and paste the files you have selected during the installation HASP_DownLoadLy.reg or NetHASP_DownLoadLy.reg run and Yes you. Now run install.bat and wait for the USB lock emulator to be installed. Select the installation option if you see a message stating that the driver is allowed to be installed. To verify the installation of the emulator, the following tools must be added in the Windows Device Manager :
Universal Serial Bus controllers -> SafNet Inc. HASP key
Universal Serial Bus controllers -> SafNet Inc. USB key
You can now run the software.
Plugins are complete and do not require activation; Just install them in the master installation folder.
