A new roughing strategy can be used to rough out pocket type geometry and takes STL or IGES geometry as input. Given floor, wall and ceiling, the optimum 5-Axis toolpath is calculated. The toolpath is similar to that generated by adaptive 3-Axis roughing but with additional tilt to suit the target geometry.
Toolpath generation now detects sharp corners or changes in direction and marks these for action by the client, so that feed rates and other machining conditions can be changed ahead of time.
5-Axis Projection now offers the ability to translate or rotate the pattern a given number of times prior to projection, making it faster to generate toolpaths with repetitive features such as blades.
|Adaptive 3-Axis Roughing|
Machine simulation includes a length based mode which breaks the toolpaths into even length increments giving a smooth simulation regardless of feed rate or move length. Arc and helix moves can now be programmed in any plane without the need to linearization, further improving the smoothness of simulation.
