madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xis the 3D CAM plug-in for Rhino 3D which gives the ability to perform both modeling and toolpath creation inside Rhino 3D. madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xis perfect for 3D CAM for CNC milling machines. All menus for controlling madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xand generated toolpaths are inside Rhinoceros and stored together with your model.

Developed for toolmaking (Mould And Die) as well as for prototype productions, madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xgenerates a non-collision toolpath with excellent cutting action. Where demand for accuracy and perfect surface smoothness is required, madCAM 6.0 Level 3X is the 3D CAM plug-in of choice.

madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xis meant for the NC-operator who demands an easy-to-use and efficient system. It facilitates effective manufacturing in a short period of time. The operator is provided with clarified results of chosen parameters. madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xhandles all 3D models that Rhinceros handles and is able to generate NC-codes to all kinds of 3-axis milling machines. A built-in post processor is adaptable for different kinds of controlling systems.

Key Features and Benefits


Roughing
Removes all the unnecessary material from the workpiece in an effective way. madCAM 6.0 Level 3X cuts the part in z-levels. The operator can choose a ramp angle to create a smooth approach of the cutter after every retract and traverse.
Finishing
Gives the final surface finish of the part. madCAM 6.0 Level 3X effectively calculates cuts for both planar and z-level finishing. The operator controls the limit with an angle for relatively horizontal and relatively vertical surfaces. The limit is calculated from the surface normal.
Remachining
This method offers an opportunity to remove material that remains where the previous cutter could not reach due to size of cutter. madCAM 6.0 Level 3Xhas strategies for removing material calculated from the true stock model, inside boundary curves and with surface dual contact (pencil trace).
Curve Milling
This includes methods for machining from curves. The curve milling offers opportunities for Engraving and strategies for toolpath projection inside boundary curves and between two curves.
2 1/2 D Machining
This includes methods for machining from curves or surface edge curves. Profiling, Pocketing, Facing and Drilling.

Does what advertised but...

It is excellent in generating tool-path solutions. The "between curves" and "boundary" options are excellent in calculating partial area solutions. The fact that the tool-paths can be modified using Rhino is a definite plus. However, the documentation is very lacking. While using it error descriptions are sometimes not helpful in identifying the issue. It therefore requires a larger than usual trial and error to discover a solution.

Great CAM for Rhino

I'm a musical instrument maker, and have recently started using Rhino to design instruments. I've been using Vectric VCarve Pro for 2 and 2.5d work, and it works very well. But I needed a 3D CAM solution that would keep my X and Y origins at the same place as my Rhino models (this lets me use some of the same indexing jigs that I use with VCarve without a lot of fiddling around). I also needed a CAM solution that would allow engraving along a curve.

To make a long story short, I downloaded trial versions of several CAM solutions within my price range, and MadCAM came out on top easily. I've been using it now for several weeks, and I've found it very intuitive to use, and the toolpaths it has generated work very well on my CNC machine. The few questions I've had have been quickly answered by the MadCAM folks. Rhino and MadCAM make a very powerful combination for musical instrument makers.

madCAM: Funny name, awesome product

I am a Mechanical Engineer, so have extensive CAD experience but have never used a CAM program before. madCAM is my first. I did demo about 10 different programs before choosing, and madCAM had the best combination of ease-of-use, powerful features, and reasonable price. Knowing Rhino3D (since it only runs as a plug-in) is a big help but not required.
