SOLIDBOX benchmarks our TEAM MASTERCAM Systems using the emastercam forum file.
Below are the instructions for running the benchmark along with a link to the file used.
Test your computer!
If your current time is over 2 Minutes you can improve productivity with a new TEAM MASTERCAM System.
Sit down “while you are waiting on a toolpath to regenerate” and do the math.
Lets say your computer does the Benchmark in 4 minutes.
That is double the time of the slowest TEAM MASTERCAM System.
So if you currently wait 20, 30, 45 minutes for a toolpath to regen you could cut that in half at minimum.
Verify times can also be cut in half.
Add the wasted time up multiply the hours by your programmers wage.
Then see how much of a computer you could afford over 6 months or maybe even 1 month.
After the R.O.I.[Return on Investment] all the time you save is money saved!
***This is in no way trying to be negative towards anyone. This is just a typical R.O.I. Calculator***
***Use the Mastercam Event Log for accurate time***
-To do Benchmark on Verify-
Run Verify on the BENCHMARK file above after the first test.
Set Quality~Speed in the center
“Show Tool Only” [No Turbo and No Holder]
Use a stopwatch to time the Verify time.
TEAM MASTERCAM computers run the Verify in less than 7 minutes and Faster!
