Account Linking Account Linking

Account Linking is important because it gives you access to current customer-only resources:
  1. User Forums - A place to communicate with the rest of the Mastercam community.  You can ask quests directly to the developers as well as suggest features for future versions of Mastercam.
  2. Knowledge Base - A searchable database of common issues, problem resolutions, or obscure Mastercam knowledge/reference.
  3. Tech Exchange - A searchable database where you can download free generic posts, tool libraries, component libraries, or setup sheets!
  4. Mastercam DownloadsUnlinked customers can only download the latest release of Mastercam.   If you are linked you can access prior versions, as well as new updates if your maintenance date allows.
  5. TutorialsDesigned to help you become familiar with basic Mastercam features and functions.
Any Mastercam programmer with access to a Mastercam License can link their account.  If you need to create a new account, you can do so here: - Register
Linked accounts which have fallen off Mastercam Maintenance will still have access to the download files corresponding to their maintenance date.
