MasterCAM is a Windows-based CAD/CAM software package, developed by CNC Software, for two- through five-axis milling and turning; two- and four-axis wire EDM; 2D and 3D design, surface and solid modeling; artistic relief cutting; and 2D and 3D routing. MasterCAM X2 features a direct add-in for Autodesk Inventor. This add-in module is free to users in the MasterCAM and Autodesk communities. Users can open a model in MasterCAM while in an Inventor session and update tool paths to reflect changes to the model. Additionally, MasterCAM X2 is able to read native Inventor files for design purposes and toolpath generation.
