Part 1, Created work origin and got the Solidworks file imported into Mastercam.

Part 2, Created solid into workable geometry and adding things like corner radiuses.

Just going to stop for a second and touch of a couple of technical questions that could arise. Why Vertical Machining Center and not 4 axis Horizontal? What kinda Material are we cutting? Highspeed cutters or solid carbide? 2, 3, 4 flutes? Surface Feed, Chip per tooth.
