madCAM 6.0 Level 5X is the 3D CAM plug-in for Rhinoceros which gives the ability to perform both modeling and toolpath creation inside Rhino 3D. madCAM 6.0 Level 5X is perfect for 3D CAM for CNC-milling machines. All menus for controlling madCAM 6.0 Level 5X and generated toolpaths are inside Rhino 3D and stored together with your model. Developed for toolmaking (Mould And Die) as well as for prototype productions, madCAM 6.0 Level 5X generates a non- collision toolpath with excellent cutting action. Where demand for accuracy and perfect surface smoothness is required, madCAM 6.0 Level 5X is the 3D [[Computer- aided_manufacturing|CAM]] plug-in of choice.

madCAM 6.0 Level 5X is 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 5X handles all 3D models that Rhino 3D handles and is able to generate NC- codes to all kinds of 5-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 5X 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 5X 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 5X has 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.

madCAM 5.0

Great way to start with CNC--Rhino 5 and madCAM 5. madCam 5 is a powerful program and fairly easy to learn, with video on YouTube to get you started. The only thing I had trouble finding were the machine, bit and post processor files which were "hidden" by default on Win 10 in a file on C:Users called appdata. Search google on how to unhide those files as I have forgotten the process.

A good value. An affordable way to learn and understand how professional CAM software works.

Excellent CAM software

Having looked at quite a few CAM options MadCam has excellent features such as 4th (and 5th) axis control and re-machining yet it is very easy to use. If you're looking for a CAM program make sure you try them out before committing (I know a school that spent $$$ on a CAD program that was way too complicated which they are now looking to replace). Even if you don't use Rhino for you CAD work it's worth getting it just to be able to use MadCam and it still works out cheaper than similar CAM packages. The only thing I miss from the previous CAM software I was using is being able to change a parameter of a tool or similar and have that flow through and update the paths made with that tool - I don't think you can do this without remaking the path in MadCam but I could be wrong. To sum up I'm very happy with the software and recommend it heartily

Best CAM Learning tool

I was scepitcal purchasing this at first, especially on a student budget. But this is a great piece of software for anyone wanting to learn CAM. It packs in so many features and the interface is great. I love working in the Rhino Enviroment and this "Plug-In" is a great addition to Rhino. I've had this for a little over a month now and I find new features and ways to program tool paths everytime I use it. Highly recommended to anyone.
