Most CAM software provides NC verification with material removal, and in some cases machine simulation, but normally only checks the toolpath generated by the software. What happens between the CAM system and the machine – postprocessing to convert the toolpath to the correct format, optimization for speeds, feeds, retraction and reorientation at machine limits, or simply hand-editing by the operator – can introduce conditions that can be costly if not identified before the part is on the machine.

IMSce for Mastercam connects directly to the Mastercam machine simulation architecture, adding G-code parsing capability with the proven IMSce solution. This leverages the robust library of available solutions as well as the extensive enginering resources of the IMS Software team.
