CAM Update Improves Finishing Efficiency

During 3D Optimized Roughing, multiple allowances are recognized and accounted for to provide a higher level of flexibility.

Open Mind Tech

OPEN MIND Technologies AG (Needham, MA) recently unveiled hyperMILL 2018.2, its latest comprehensive CAM software offering with features that include:

  • New features for 3D Shape Z-level Finishing and 3D Optimized Roughing.
  • Automatic face extension during CAM programming to automatically extend the selected milling surfaces, eliminating manual CAD work for cleaner corner cuts.
  • Support for conical barrel cutters, in addition to general and tangential cutters.
  • During 3D Optimized Roughing, multiple allowances are recognized and accounted for when using free tool geometries, resulting in easier programming and a higher level of flexibility.
  • The ability to measure and record the distances between two shapes such as face models, solids, meshes or stock.  
  • The V sketch command that assigns geometric constraints to 2D contours.
