Robotmaster V5 is all new for Mastercam X5. Robotmaster seamlessly integrates robot programming, simulation and code generation inside Mastercam, delivering quicker robot programming. Create simple or complex robot trajectories accurately without teaching points using Mastercam Mill or Router. The programming of the robot trajectory is done graphically using the same process and tools used for CNC machines, by selecting geometry (lines, arcs, part edges and/or 3D part). Once the geometry is selected, parameter boxes guide the user in making the proper selection of process information. The software automatically generates the robot trajectory based on the above information.
