    MasterWood 365 5axis - Masterwood Opinions

    We are looking to upgrade to a MasterWood Project 365. Does anyone use this machine or any masterwood cnc routers in general? Whats your opinion of them? Theres very little information online about masterwood in general. Are they as good or better than biesse, scm, morbidelli.
    it appears to be a solid machine though the workable height is only 200mm, and perhaps less when the head tilted.

    if anyone knows anything about these machine would love a quick review.

    I've used a 1997 Masterwood, and a 2007 Morbidelli, and find them to be comparable.
    Haven't seen a newer Masterwood, though.

    Hi, i am new at the world of cnc programming. My company have a Masterwood Project 365. I need some help to understand the program this cnc. I want to ask if it´s some way to link SolidCam to generate the NC code to the CNC.

    Thanks for the help.

    Not sure though usually big brand Cncs use their own cam software as there’s lots of pre defined settings specific to the machine. You would need to find or write a post processor to convert the code to the correct layout.

    What does your company do? What sort of work is produced by the 365? Why do you want to use solid cam? Is wasterworks not good?

    Hi, my company does furniture for stores. And i am dealing for the first time with a master project 365. The MASTER AT that only read DXF file, 2 D drawings. For a 5 axis CNC i think that it´s causing a limit uses of all capacities of the cnc.
    So now i am using Solidworks maximized, because for example now it´s impossible to do the lamelo joint, because i think it´s almost impossible to do in DXF. Files.
    I dont have any experience in postprocessor in thins type (wood) cnc, and i need some help.

    Hello Dear ALL,
    i do service in TURKEY for MasterWood machinery.
    And 365 series are new one with BECKHOFF Germany tecnologies.
    And using MasterAT software but it is 5 axes machine without CAD software.
    You must buy CAD program with Post Process. But unfortunally the machine is poor to that.

    You can contact with me for All MasterWood machines on Private. im able to Masterwood 300-315-400-415/416 and 350/365 series.
    Best regards,

    Wait... so the Project 365 has no CAD software? Masterworks 316? Or is that a waste of space? And is Master AT just to load the job? What would be the best cad software for it? Solid works?

    From what I gather, MasterAT is what links to the machine, shows you where all the pods etc and stuff are. Masterworks is the same as biesseworks. They do software for doors, windows and cabinets. Not sure how good any of that is though. Their website has so many spelling mistakes it's almost embarrassing.

    Doesn't look like they have a 5axis piece of software yet. Fusion360, Alphacam or the like would be the go I'd imagine.

    is there a way to read and share to us the actual code into the machine control?
    Is it Standard Gcode or propitiatory code?
    or could you share the machine and programming manual?

    Shouldn't be any problem to program this in 5axis

    bottom line here, do you have the resources to purchase/lease a machine and have a workload for a machine?
    need to automate what you have already going?
    This can be a money maker as all the machines i program and set-up into production do.

    Looks like Master-3D is the included CAM software, and probably an entry level version.
    Master 3D the CAD/CAM software solution for wood and similar materials working industry by numerically controlled machining centres
    If you have to pay extra for the more advanced functions, you may be better off with MasterCAM Router or AlphaCAM.
