Mastercam is a type of software used by many different CNC machines. Though many people assume that they can handle the installation of that software and learn how to use it without any help, others discover that the software is a little more complicated than they expected. Those struggling with Mastercam software can find help in a few different ways.
Check the Packaging
One of the easiest ways to find help is with the documents that come with the software. Most sellers send out the software and instructions on how to use that software with any purchase of a CNC machine. The instructions give you clear step by step details on how to install the software and get it up and running. Those documents should also include some troubleshooting information that walks you through various steps when you have problems with the software.
Call for Help
If you go through every step and still can’t get the software to work or still experience some problems, it’s time to call for help. The companies responsible for manufacturing and distributing CNC machines often have a toll free number that you can call with any questions you have or problems you experience. Trained call center representatives will walk you through a few different methods to solve your exact problem. Companies like Sierra CAD/CAM, Inc. and similar companies offer support for those who purchased their machines from other companies too. Getting help ensures that your software runs and operates the way you need it to work.
