How do you open a Mastercam 2018 file in Mastercam 2017?

I have completed a project in Mastercam 2018 now I want to open file in Mastercam 2017 but it doesn't support newer version.

You'll have to save the file as a generic file type such as iges, step, dxf, or dwg in order to bring it into an earlier version. They don't allow for rearward compatibility. One of the ways they try to ensure you'll get the latest and greatest they are selling.
